Author, professor and photographer: Teal Triggs

As author of Fanzines: The DIY RevolutionTeal Triggs has been on the Desert Isolation Discs wish list for some time. Her study of publishing's finest form is an excellent examination of their loudmouth birth (titles includes Crap Hound and Beer Can Fanzine) and cultural influence. The American living in London has enjoyed a lengthy career as first a photographer and then an academic, teaching graphic design.

Meeting up at the Royal College of Art in Kensington, Teal talks me through the eight songs still in her suitcase, explains why she's not a typical Texan and reveals which zine she couldn't live without. Stream below or subscribe to the podcast here
