This show is about the inevitable co-option of subcultures by the mainstream. We talk about what it looks like, why it's a problem, and how to infect larger culture with your ideals in the process. We talk to Margaret Killjoy (aka Magpie @magpiekilljoy), founder and editor of Steampunk Magazine, editor at Combustion Books and freelance graphic designer.
