Ricepaper Magazine on CBC radio: Shelagh Rogers interviews Jim Wong-Chu and Jessica Gin-Jade Listen to the interview on CBC's Website!
Shelagh Rogers interviewed Ricepaper Founder & Publisher Jim
Wong-Chu and Editor-in-Chief Jessica Gin-Jade on November 10! Check out http://www.cbc.ca/soundslikecanada/ and tune your dials (or find webcasts) for CBC Radio One's “Sounds
Like Canada” 10:00am (10:30 am NT) – or listen as I do at CBC Radio online.
Maybe it's the great editorial that grabs attention. Maybe it's the
design, which keeps getting better with each issue. Maybe, just maybe
it's the 10 years of publishing, surviving in the Canadian mag industry
(and outlasting some) that caught their eye.
Ten years in the magazine industry is no small feat. More like a
small miracle. So CBC Radio's “Sounds Like Canada” shared Ricepaper
Magazine's successes (and misses) with a national audience of 1.3 million listeners across Canada.
It was a great interview. Listen to Jessica talk about how
difficult it is to find kimchee in Halifax, and Jim talk about the
“cultural engineers” that are turning Ricepaper into the hip and
happening success that is so exciting.
Ricepaper was first on “Sounds Like Canada” back in January 2003, the same day Toddish McWong made his SLC debut.
Shelagh co-hosted the 2005 Gung Haggis Fat Choy Robbie Burns Chinese
New Year dinner that was a fundraiser for Ricepaper Magazine and the
Gung Haggis Fat Choy dragon boat team. Ricepaper is published by Asian Canadian Writers' Workshop, for which I am a vice-president.
