Drawing their inspiration from the punk rock zine culture of their youth and a shared love of radio, Allyson McCabe (NPR, Rumpus, SF Chronicle) and Kevin Wortis (Girlie Action Media) are teaming up to bring you Vanishing Ink. Stripped and taped together like the music fanzines of a bygone era, the content is raw and edgy; a modern tribute to punk culture and radio.

It’s a podcast. It’s a fanzine. It’s a DIY culture assault. It’s two old friends, backed by a merry band of scribblers, navigating contemporary music culture in the wider context of their shared history. From one bartender's no-holds-barred take on your last Tinder date to the new bands you've just got to hear, each Vanishing Ink episode will be filled with stories and sounds that aren't available anywhere else.
