This special edition of the magCulture Podcast marks the 15th anniversary of Monocle. Jeremy Leslie talks to the magazine’s founder and editorial director Tyler Brûlé as issue 151 arrives from the printers.

The two discuss the origins of the magazine, its growth over the years, Brûlé’s mistrust of social media, the importance of tone of voice, and surviving the pandemic. They also reflect on the further launches—including the recent women’s magazine Konfekt—and the decision to launch a 24-hour radio station rather than a tablet edition of the magazine.

As ever, we're grateful to our friends at Park Communications for their support of this podcast. Find them online at

With thanks to Steph and Holly at Monocle; final edit by Sam Williams.
