Making mistakes with Autodidact magazine
Bardia Koushan is editor and art director of Autodidact, the magazine that brings together work by a wide range of artists and creative people. The second issue came out a few weeks ago, themed around the idea of mistakes, and I really enjoyed speaking to him about the different types of mistakes they included, and particularly the mistakes he made while making the issue. I love it when magazine makers speak openly about the pitfalls of publishing, and as he says at one point in our conversation, “You can’t make an issue on mistakes and not embrace it yourself.”
I’m very pleased to say we have copies of Autodidact available to buy in the Stack shop, so head over there if you’d like to pick one up for yourself, and to see more spreads and a story list. And if you don’t already, please do follow us via Soundcloud or wherever else you get your podcasts so we can keep on delivering new episodes to you as soon as they’re ready.
