Welcome to the April edition of The VICE Magazine Podcast, your definitive monthly guide to enlightening information. While many editions of our magazine are themed, this one is not, but if you stare long enough into the looking glass on this month’s cover maybe you’ll find one.

 

Here's Our Table Of Contents:

  • Photo-editor Elizabeth Renstrom explains our trippy cover image and the photographer responsible for it.
  • Haisam Hussein shares some interesting facts you may not have known about international trade.
  • Jason Leopold, our Freedom Of Information Act expert, reveals new information on the woman dubbed by the media as “The DC Madam.”
  • Chris Carroll chats with writer Ross Ufberg about his trip to Ukraine for what’s been called the Hasidic Burning Man.
  • Erika Allen interviews journalist Lauren Oyler on what it was like to profile Patricia Lockwood; who some call “The Poet Laureate Of Twitter.”

Unlike last month’s episode that focused on the future of tech, our March issue is objectively themeless. However, in the process of creating this podcast… we found a few through lines. In many ways, this episode is about identity. From the frog on our cover, to a rapper dealing with his perception in our media landscape, to the refugee crisis in Greece, this episode deals with people striving to break the molds that have been forced upon them.

Here is 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 to senior editor Chris Carroll that Greece's anarchists might be taking better care of refugees than the government.
  • Our own Erika Allen interviews Noisey’s Kyle Kramer about his time in the studio interviewing rapper Vince Staples.
  • Finally, Chloe Campion, a producer at VICE, shares a story about an item she picked up while hiking in Nepal. Here’s your chance to take a guess at what it is.
