Ep. 47: Intent Magazine and Podcast

Intent Magazine and Podcast is a new venture from Belfast-based friends and housemates Fiona McDonnell and Constance Keane.

The project will highlight people who make and are involved with art, music, and culture on the island of Ireland – using interviews and photography to explore the intent behind the work.

I ask the duo about the new project and its launch at Framewerk, Belfast Friday 24th February.  I get a sneak preview of the first issue and its contents – interviews with NI skater collective The Joyalists; gallery owner Dawn Richardson; and a ‘walk-home’ review of Belfast’s recent Output Festival.

Fiona also talks about her work as a freelance illustrator and Constance speaks about her work in music – solo vocal and electronics project Fears and feminist punk group M(h)aol.

We also veer into discussion of our favourite podcasts, social media and body image, diversity in YouTube celebrity, and the taking of responsibility over our online clicks.
