ZINE
The ZINE Radio Show is a Demoscene Podcast from and for sceners, and everyone curious about one of the oldest but still very lively digital art cultures. Every month Axel, Okkie and Ziphoid share the latest news and trivia and invite interesting guests for deep-dives into the many disciplines and communities in and around the demoscene.
#31 - Beyond the Scene: Fanedits with Bobson Dugnutt
Everyone loves themselves a good movie, just like a good realtime-rendered scene - and as we do with the latter, some people take their passion obscenely far in making their favourite movies the best they can be. We talk with Bobson Dugnutt about fanedits, a small scene that might seem familiar in all but its final products.

#29 - Gimmicks and Satire in Demos with jco
Whether it is to divert expectations, provoke, bend the rules or simply have a good time and be creative: humour, satire and gimmicks are a long-standing tradition in the demoscene. But is there more to it than just blatant knee-slappers and cheap audience-pleasing? Does humour free oneself from too many expectations and limitations? Or is it limiting in its own ways? With the topic so close to his own heart, okkie chats with jco, who has been leaving audiences somewhere between laughing and confused about story-driven productions with characters such as Kevin and Evilbot, all while also developing impressive tool chains and technologically apt productions that don't have to hide behind the absurdity... or do they?

#27 - Bonfire Special: Competitions with Kiero and Hoffman
After long summer nights, it's getting cold outside again and the demoparty calendar gets sparser. In this special, we invite two guests to discuss a topic intimately, as you might catch the conversation close to a bonfire after a good compo night: Our two guests hardly need an introduction - Kiero (MadWizards, Elude) and H0ffman (Logicoma, Unstable Label) share their experiences, feelings and anecdotes about competitions. Do they release for the fun of it, or to win? Do they still get compo jitters? Do they ever feel dissatisfied with a production? Is our voting system fair? Do they namevote? And how do they work towards that moment, when their prod is finally shown at the bigscreen?

#26 - A Dive Into the Scene’s Psychology with Tom
Welcome to our biggest episode yet! We can all agree sceners are a peculiar bunch, and our scene is a community like no other, juggling creativity and technical prowess, often even within the same individuals. What does it do with us to create, compete and socialise in this environment, and how can we take care of our own and others’ wellbeing? We explore the psychology behind the demoscene, demoparties and demomaking with Tom, who does not just create amazing Atari-demos with Genesis Project, Effect and SMFX, but also lectures on Community Psychology at the University of Leeds. We appreciate that even two hours can’t do justice to all angles of this complex topic. If you would like to share your thoughts, stories and questions, send them to [email protected] or to our social media accounts. If you are interested and we receive enough feedback, we might produce a follow-up in the future. **Disclaimer**: If you are in distress or have a medical emergency, please seek out professional help immediately: https://findahelpline.com/ Links in the episode: Back In Time, Bergen: https://backintime.no/ TRSAC Demoparty, Denmark: http://trsac.dk/ Demoscene Discord: https://discord.gg/76nuRVzqS3 Sommarhack Party: https://dhs.nu/sommarhack/2022/ Tom on Demozoo: https://demozoo.org/sceners/73804/ Credits: Hosts: Axel, Okkie, Ziphoid Producer: Shana Editing and Sound Engineering: lug00ber Cover Art: Critikill

#25 - The Newcomer Experience with Tobach
The Scene is Dead! Or is it? How do newcomers experience the demoscene when joining these days, and how did the pandemic and lack of physical events impact them? We are talking to Tobach, famed for sheep and fantastic demos on exotic devices - and give Okkie a good while to talk about the release of his first demo (he did it, people!!)

#23 - For Easter is a Sceners Christmas with Steeler
25 years ago in Northern Germany, an Amiga/C64 demoparty called "Symposium" and a PC demoparty called "Mekka" decided to merge into one common demoscene event on Easter, bringing the home computer and PC demoscene under one roof - Something almost unthinkable at the time. This was the beginning of a tradition that was eventually carried on by Breakpoint and resulted in Revision, the world's biggest pure demoparty. Ah, the kids we were...! But wait, what about kids today? In the second half of the episode, we explore how kids perceive the digital world today, how they enter it, concepts and pitfalls of current media education, and if the demoscene can still be relevant for this generation. So what better time of the year to invite Steeler, orga of Mekka & Symposium as well as a media education advisor these days, looking all the way from the 1980s and compare it to the next generation's approach to creativity and tinkering. Lean back and get ready for a MASSIVE episode!

#22 - Beyond the Scene: Algoraves with Alex McLean
For the first time in a long while, we are venturing beyond our own realms, and invite a guest from a scene not so different from ours: We have a chat with Alex McLean, a key figure of the Algorave movement, about the similarities and differences of our scenes and creative process. Let's see if we can draw some inspiration from each other! Algoraves have been an ever-growing trend over the past ten years, in which musicians livecode their music to please the dancing masses. Also, we chat about the Revision Satellites, share some exclusive insights into the survey they held earlier in the year, and reflect on Lovebyte that just happened prior to recording (and get Okkie to say "...in DOOOOOS" one more time.) Send us questions, suggestions or voice messages to [email protected] Join the discussions on the Demoscene Discord Server or our own. Follow us on Twitter at @zineradioshow or on Facebook.
