Cycling and community on the pages of The Domestique
Josh Page started The Domestique as a blog where he and his friends could post their stories about cycling. Deliberately turning away from the mainstream coverage of the sport, with its focus on elite male athletes, they instead placed an emphasis on the sense of community they found from riding their bikes together.
Now a print magazine on its second issue, The Domestique has continued on its mission to tell alternative stories from across the cycling world, and has even branched out into other sports in search of people getting involved in things they love. In this episode of the Stack podcast Josh speaks about the changes he has made along the way, the inevitable struggles (and surprising success) with advertising, and why the blog turned out to be just too much work (but may well be making a comeback soon).
We love speaking to independent magazine makers about the things they do, and we’ve got lots of other episodes waiting for your ears. Check our archives on Soundcloud or iTunes, and follow us wherever you get your podcasts so we can deliver next week’s episode straight to you as soon as it’s ready.
