The Soccer Fan & An Alternate View

Felicia Pennant is possibly the most exuberant guest we have ever had the pleasure of inviting onto Life Elsewhere. When you hear Felicia rave on about the sport that inspired her to start a magazine, don’t be surprised if you too become a soccer fan. Felicia, a devoted Chelsea fan took a fashion course at St. Martins School of Art in London and wrote her graduating thesis on Fashion and Soccer. A brilliant combination that triggered the creation of Season Zine. It’s a cross between a fashion magazine and a football zine.”  Says Felicia, adding, Season is named after the shared time division, it reveals the experiences and rituals of fashion and football fans. Their perspectives on the world’s most popular sport are explored in thoughtful and intimate ways, focusing on why these fans care and what they wear.” Felicia Pennant, Season Zine, creator, and editor,  joins us for the next edition of Life Elsewhere.

In the past year, we’ve had a number of trusted, informed commentators on the show to give their two cents worth on the antics and contradictions of Mr. Trump. But, as the days roll on and the General Election looms closer, the division between the parties and the opinions of the electorate grow further apart. Although we try to shy away from taking a political stand at Life Elsewhere, we will admit that the guests and topics we choose do suggest a certain bias. Yet, we are honestly confused by the hostility toward the Democratic Party, Mrs. Clinton, and President Obama. In an attempt to try to understand the appeal of Mr. Trump and the fierce opposition to Mrs. Clinton, et al, we invited Robyn Walensky, senior news anchor at the Blaze radio network to give us her take on why Donald Trump and the Republican agenda would be a better choice in the General Election.

A Thriller, Classic Covers, & The Female Fan.

Joseph Finder’s plan was to become a spy. Or maybe a professor of Russian history. Instead, he became a bestselling thriller writer. In Guilty Minds, his latest tome, the chief justice of the Supreme Court is about to be defamed, his career destroyed, by a powerful gossip website that specializes in dirt on celebs and politicians. Nick Heller is a private spy—an intelligence operative based in Boston, hired by lawyers, politicians, and even foreign governments. A high-powered investigator with a penchant for doing things his own way, he’s called to Washington, DC, to help out in this delicate, potentially explosive situation. Is Nick Heller Mr. Finder’s alter ego? Find out when Norman B interviews the critically acclaimed author.

2016 marks the 70th anniversary of Penguin Classics, and to celebrate, Penguin is publishing a showcase of more than ten years of stunning cover designs from Penguin Classics. The book, Classic Penguin: Cover To Cover will become a must-have and go-to reference for not only graphic designers but also anyone who appreciates good design. Penguin Classics creative director Paul Buckley and Penguin Classics publisher Elda Rotor share their insights on book cover design.

It’s a cross between a fashion magazine and a football zine. Named after the shared time division, it reveals the experiences and rituals of fashion and football fans. Their perspectives on the world’s most popular sport are explored in thoughtful and intimate ways, focusing on why these fans care and what they wear. Featuring interviews, essays, photography and more from up-and-coming creatives, Season aims to kick off a dialogue acknowledging how modern football and fashion play into each other. With an introduction like that, we couldn’t resist. So we set up an interview with Season Zine creator and editor, Felicia Pennant. Little did we know that Felicia would be so exuberant and charming. A proposed ten-minute interview turned into over an hour of Ms. Pennant chatting enthusiastically with Norman B. Her passion for soccer and her beautiful magazine is infectious, so we decided to share with you a sneak preview in this edition of Life Elsewhere. We have added images from Season Zine in the slide show above.
