Episode 3: The Best of Times

As their rivalry carried on in the streetboxes week to week, dozens of young writers and editors cycled through the doors of SEE Magazine and Vue Weekly — some cognizant of the papers’ bitter history, others not so much. In this episode we hear from a number of writers who cut their first bylines at the papers, and how working the alt-weekly beat influenced their lives at the time.
