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.
Our April issue was themeless, but it's a strong issue, and if you stare at the looking glass on the cover long enough, maybe a theme will reveal itself to you. In this episode, we talk about this trippy cover, shot by one of our favorite photographers, Michael Northrup; discuss a three-day trip to the Hasidic Burning Man, and hear what it's like to profile the "poet laureate of Twitter." And of course there's much more.
Here's our table of contents:
- Photo editor Elizabeth Renstrom explains why the cover resembles what it might look like if you tripped on ayahuasca with your parents.
- Infographic virtuoso Haisam Hussein breaks down international trade by the numbers.
- Our Freedom of Information Act expert Jason Leopold reveals new information on the US Postal Service's investigation into the DC Madam.
- Writer Ross Ufberg talks about his trip to Uman, Ukraine, for what's been called the Hasidic Burning Man.
- Lauren Oyler discusses her time in a graveyard interviewing rising poet Patricia Lockwood.
- And Roberto Ferdman, a correspondent at VICE News Tonight, takes us through the journey that led to the discovery of his artifact.
