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.
Unlike last month's issue, which focused on the future of tech, March's has no concrete theme. However, in the process of recording the podcast, we found a few through lines. In many ways, our new issue focuses on identity. So for this episode, among other stuff, we talk about the frog on our cover, a rapper dealing with the media's perception of him, and the refugee crisis in Greece. We touch, mainly, on people and things trying to break free of the molds forced on them.
Here's our table of contents:
- Photo editor Elizabeth Renstrom explains how the cover of our March issue might make you do a double take.
- Infographic virtuoso Haisam Hussein hits the jackpot with a set of facts about global lotteries.
- Author, illustrator, and activist Molly Crabapple reveals that Greece's anarchists might be taking better care of refugees than the government.
- Noisey's Kyle Kramer discusses his time in the studio interviewing rapper Vince Staples. (His profile goes live on Noisey on March 23.)
- And Chloe Campion, a producer at VICE, shares a story about an item she picked up while hiking in Nepal.
