Audio report from Zine Pavilion 2019

Zine librarian Matthew Murray was featured as one of the co-organizers of this year’s Zine Pavilion on episode 26 of the HiJinx podcast, produced by the Howard County Public Library (Maryland). The podcast was recorded entirely at the American Library Association conference in DC in June, and Matthew talks about zines and zine culture, discusses the differences between zines and blogs, and shares his thoughts on the value of the zine community. Matthew is featured from minute 2:35 through 10:18; take a listen!
