The Zine Episode
Zines have been an important part of sub- and counter-cultures for decades, and along the way, have become woven into the fabric of punk rock.
On today’s episode, we take a deep-dive into the past, present and future of Zines through the lens of three zinesters.
First we talk to Alex Wrekk, the author and publisher of the ongoing zine Brainscan, and the literal book on zines, Stolen Sharpie Revolution. She gives us some insight on the history and development of zines and zine culture.
Then, we speak with China Martins, the long-time zinester behind the anarcho-punk motherhood zine, The Future Generation, who give us a first person perspective of self-publishing in the zine heyday of the ‘80s and ‘90s.
Finally, we wrap up our discussion with Christina Long of Blkgrlswurld, a zine that celebrates and represents Woman of Colour in heavy music scenes. She gives us a look into the role modern zines can play in advancing issues and making social progress within scenes and subcultures.
