Grappling with the Future of Music and the Value of Vinyl

The VICE Magazine Podcast is your definitive guide to enlightening information. Since this is the last episode on our Music Issue, I wanted to tackle questions about how changes in technology have affected the state of the music industry today—for better or worse. In the age of streaming, with access to millions of songs, how do you figure out what to listen to? And how is that process different than it was ten years ago? What role will vinyl play in the future of music? What effect, if...

Unlike last month’s episode that focused on the future of tech, our March issue is objectively themeless. However, in the process of creating this podcast… we found a few through lines. In many ways, this episode is about identity. From the frog on our cover, to a rapper dealing with his perception in our media landscape, to the refugee crisis in Greece, this episode deals with people striving to break the molds that have been forced upon them.
