Episode 157: Exploring Opportunities in Retail as a Magazine Publisher

In order to adapt to the changing marketplace, magazine publishers are finding creative, new revenue streams.

In this episode of AudioMag, Matthew Stepanic, the editor of Glass Buffalo, shares his journey from publisher to retail curator.

Alongside Jason Purcell, Matthew recently co-founded Glass Bookshop based in Edmonton, Alberta. The bookstore works to highlight independent Canadian publishers as well as the works of those who identify as queer, Indigenous and people of colour. The shop serves as a community space.
