Question The Answers

Question The Answers Podcast: Episode #16 – Lisa Root

Lisa Root like The Lemonheads, babysitting your dog, and keeping print media alive.

Lisa Root takes on the monolithic task of running New Noise Magazine, a music centered magazine that has been around now for seven years and is going strong. As the founder and editor-in-chief, Lisa leads the ship and its crew through the crazy deadline cycle and manages to make a significantly positive impact on the music scene on a really large scale, covering interviews, articles and features on various bands, as well as a ton of album and live show reviews (when they were happening). The magazine covers a variety of genres, but mainly focuses on the Punk, Metal, Indie, Ska and Hardcore scenes.

Thankfully, Lisa admits that she has the right personality for the job, and her love of the music scene and Punk Rock ethos carry her through the journey of creating each issue. During this episode, we talk about what it takes to get each issue out, along with what it means to be working in print media during the time of COVID-19. She gives me some history of the magazine and we discuss where it’s heading. Lisa also shares with me some of her favorite artists and her desert island albums.

You can reach Lisa Root via the magazine’s website!
