Listen to an interview with Paris-based English Journalist Alex Taylor on a special edition of Urban States. Alex is very famous in France for having hosted the very first multilingual show on French TV in the early 90’s.

Would you like to support us in our endeavour to produce quality independent journalism? Yes?! Then we’ve made it possible by having produced a fanzine which is for sale. We’re hoping to get the fanzine stocked in some stores in Paris, London, Berlin and Brussels by February. But, in the meantime it’s available to buy online here at www.urbanstates.tumblr.com.
Are you an educational institution? Yes?! Then we would love to share this experience with your students. We can focus on the role of production, writing or even publicising when presenting and egging with your students about this independent publishing adventure. And more generally we can share our first-hand experiences of what it takes to set-up and just ‘be’ an independent journalist. We produce #urbanstates as a radioshow/podcast and more recently as a printed fanzine.
Soft-city meets smart-city! Micro-reportages on and about innovative spaces. How they improve wellbeing and bring connection, mainly in Paris. Produced by Paul Wright aka OutUrbanArtsBoy.
