Listen: Design Work's Kate Darby interviews Intern Magazine's Alec Dudson

Design Work is a new podcast hosted by New Zealand designer Kate Darby that interviews trailblazing creatives from all over the globe about how they design and how they embrace new modes of working. In the eighth episode, she chats with Alec Dudson, founder of Intern Magazine and lecturer at Leeds Arts University. Dudson started Intern as an independent publication in 2013 to create an open, frank discussion about the state of the creative industry and young people's place in it. Here, they discuss starting an independent publication, evolving it into a digital media house, call out culture pressuring brands and employers to hopefully to the right thing and why we need more young diverse voices in the creative industry.
