The second issue of Katie Ash's podcast review and recommendation zine, Listen Up!, is a treat. As always, Katie's passion for these shows leaps off the page and her cut-and-paste layout makes it a joy to read. This issue focuses largely on POC-led podcasts and includes a lot of shows that don't often make recommendation lists. Without a doubt, you'll finish reading and want to put one of these shows on...[ continued ]

The Mapping Out Utopia zine series is stunning in the depth of its research and the way it examines local history as a microcosm of broad societal change. In this, the third and final issue, Devin looks at communities near the Boston area and the kinds of counterculture organizations that formed there in the 1970s. While mapping these organizations and their histories, he also provides brief histories of the environmental movement, corporate boycotts, consumer rights, the peace movement, food cooperatives, and so much more...[ continued ]

In Masculinities, Cindy Crabb (Doris) explores how we're each individually taught about what masculinity is. The zine focuses on the role models (positive or problematic or often both) who guided that education and how it played out. As she says in her introduction, she wants to "shake [masculinity] up—look at all the varied ways people are taught what it means to be a man, and where they found resistance, examples of other ways to be...[ continued ]
