Ed from Buoloco is still going strong on asking people about editorial corruption in magazines. Has it spawned some heat? Probably even though it seems to have gone from the original idea we had about buyers guides towards covers and editorial content like trip reports. If you missed part one of these chronicles you can catch up on them here. But for now here’s 4 more chapters for you to peruse.
Continuing with media heads is John Laing from Frequency (possibly the last good magazine worth reading) and his take on this. His look on it seems to be where can I shove an ad and make some money.
Next up is all around man of the shred Todd Richards. Which this interview is like Todd Richards greatest hits then a 20 second hissy fit where it just says corruption is everywhere. Thanks Todd for your beautiful insights go back to mercing some noobs on Call of Duty.
Third round goes to Nitro mad man Austin Smith. As a pro rider this kid kills it and himself regularly but his insights into snowboarding are almost always relevant to what is going on.
If you read Thrasher than you have to know who Dave Sypniewski is. If you don’t he worked for Transworld and makes some valid points on the fact snowboarding isn’t about journalism. Pretty good insight into being burnt out by a magazine though if you take the subtle hints.
The final chapter in part two goes to snowboarding agent to the stars Bob Klein. He’s been around, he’s consulted with brands, and well I’m not sure what to take from this.
