Underground Airwaves – Chewing the Fat with Render Magazine

cover_webThere is a new quarterly magazine in Portland and it will likely interest readers of Edible Publications.  Render and the focus of the magazine is on food and feminism.  After a successful Kickstarter campaign this past summer, they have started printing the magazine.  The first issue of the magazine takes a look at flesh; from women in the field of butchering to food and issues with weight.

On this episode of the podcast we talk with Gabi de Leon, founder and creative director, and Danielle Knott, executive director, about the origin story of the magazine as well as what they want to accomplish five years down the road. Gabi starts off the podcast with a story about how a butchering class with the Portland Meat Collective enabled her to be more in touch with her own flesh. The story and interview were recorded at KBOO Community Radio.
