Travelling the USA with Fifty Grande
Chris M Walsh is founder and editor of Fifty Grande, the travel magazine that goes deep to uncover the real USA. As you’ll hear in the podcast episode above, the magazine is really a mix of travel, food and music, which is itself a reflection of Chris’s interests and experiences – he’s spent time working on Billboard and Zagat, and he’s transferring the things he’s learned from those big, corporate publishers, while also improvising along the way.
I’m sure lots of the things he’s currently figuring out will sound familiar to anyone who has tried to publish something themselves and it was great speaking with him and hearing about his story so far, so I hope you’ll enjoy this conversation with Chris from Fifty Grande. Remember we have lots more conversations with independent magazine makers in our archives on Soundcloud and iTunes, so check them out for more like this, and if you follow us while you’re there we’ll be able to deliver our episodes to you as soon as they’re ready.
