Brittany Spanos, writer for Rolling Stone magazine, was inspired by the movie “Almost Famous” when she was young, so clearly it’s no surprise that her music career trajectory led her to one of the most iconic music magazines in the world. Brittany’s interest in music writing and music history led her to NYU, where she studied music and journalism and interned at Allure magazine and the Village Voice. During the episode, Brittany talks more about her writing career, including working at the Village Voice, the freelance hustle, her articles for Spin, Vulture, Rookie, and many more, as well as her insights on the media industry landscape.  Brittany also discusses the current outlook for music and how it’s reaching new platforms and audiences outside of the mainstream.
