Behind the scenes of a music webzine with Christine Jutras
In the episode of our webzine "behind the scenes" series, we finally have Christine on to talk about the beginnings of CONFRONT. She was the co-founder of the magazine along with Angel Karmazenuk (who we sadly couldn't have on because of scheduling complications) so we got a direct look at how the magazine came to be and how they made their connections at the early stages. We've also got quite a few 30 Seconds To Mars stories thrown in there because they were a big part of the reason CONFRONT magazine exists.
