Podcast: Nadia Saccardo, Pallet magazine
Normally with these podcasts I have a pretty good idea of what I’m going to be talking about – I arrange to interview people because I’m interested in hearing about their magazines or the way they work, and I feel like they’ll say something that’s worth sharing with a wider audience.
But sometimes an interview just sneaks up on me, which is exactly what happened when I met Nadia Saccardo in New York last month. We met up for a coffee because I knew she worked on Pallet magazine, the craft beer title distributed across the USA and beyond. But while talking to her she explained that she’s also on the teams at Four & Sons and Good Sport, and used to work for Smith Journal and Frankie.
I’m a big fan of all those magazines, and she spoke so eloquently and accessibly about her love for independent print that I knew I had to start recording our conversation. So this week’s podcast comes from a playground in the Lower East Side, and features Nadia along with some authentic city sounds. (Annoyingly, the fact it was all so unplanned means I forgot to take a photo of her for this blog post, which is why I’ve had to use the press shot above.)
I’m very pleased to say this week’s episode is sponsored by Park Communications, the London-based printer who were out in New York with me. They were over there because they’re keen to work with independent publishers all around the world, so if you’re thinking of starting your own independent magazine, or you think your print job could be improved, check out their services. And don’t forget to tell them Stack sent you!
I loved speaking to Nadia, and I hope you enjoy this one. As ever, you can follow us on Soundcloud or iTunes, or just search for ‘Stack Magazines’ in your favourite podcast place, and we’ll be back next week with another independent publisher speaking about what they do.
