Vogue magazine continues to keep up with the times, recently introducing its first podcast hosted by contributing editor extraordinaire, Andre Leon Talley.
Talley’s position at the publication has been pivotal in its growth over the years. His expertise, keen taste in style, and role as a celebrity ambassador allow him to speak about a range of topics relevant to popular aesthetics and culture.
“I’ve been a longtime storyteller at Vogue and it’s just another format for telling stories — as at Vogue, we love to tell the story of style, fashion, and what is absolutely a part of the culture at the moment,” he told Huffington Post.
The “Vogue Podcast” will include a range of high-profile celebrities, such as EIC Anna Wintour, who will be weighing in on Kanye West’s presidential plans. Talley is also readying conversations with master creators like Margo Jefferson, author of the book Negroland.
Talley says the podcast will include a variety of topics such as “home, food, style, fashion, personality, celebrities,” and that Vogue is open about the content and chosen guests.
He did mention a few people at the top of his interview list, though.
According to Huffington Post:
“My dream guest would be Rihanna.”
“And another dream guest would be Kanye West. He’s very much a prolific talker — he tells a story if you give him the format. So I imagine it would be a very long marathon of a podcast.”
You can hear a preview of the first episode on iTunes now.
