The Quarantine Hotline #6 — Andrew Gallix

An interview series in which we beat the lockdown blues reaching out to friends for a nice and informal telephone chat. In our sixth episode, Fernando Sdrigotti talks to Andrew Gallix, who is currently in lockdown in Paris, France.

Some of the topics discussed: 3:AM Magazine, making something out of nothing, punk, money and literature, and the myth of Paris.
