The VICE Magazine Podcast is your definitive monthly guide to enlightening information. Each episode brings in-depth interviews, sonically rich cultural insights, and a rare glimpse into how we make the issue.

This month, we have The Restless Youth Issue, and it tells the stories of the young men and women campaigning for the change they want to see in the world. Their struggles and efforts reveal the vitality, glaring contradictions, and ever-growing complexities of youth protest in the 21st century. In this episode, we look at the history of youth in revolt, highlight the recent anti-corruption protests in Romania, and hold a roundtable discussion with VICE journalists on what's at stake when reporting the news. And, of course, there's much more.
