#27 - Bonfire Special: Competitions with Kiero and Hoffman
After long summer nights, it's getting cold outside again and the demoparty calendar gets sparser. In this special, we invite two guests to discuss a topic intimately, as you might catch the conversation close to a bonfire after a good compo night: Our two guests hardly need an introduction - Kiero (MadWizards, Elude) and H0ffman (Logicoma, Unstable Label) share their experiences, feelings and anecdotes about competitions. Do they release for the fun of it, or to win? Do they still get compo jitters? Do they ever feel dissatisfied with a production? Is our voting system fair? Do they namevote? And how do they work towards that moment, when their prod is finally shown at the bigscreen?

#26 - A Dive Into the Scene’s Psychology with Tom
#26 - A Dive Into the Scene’s Psychology with Tom
Welcome to our biggest episode yet! We can all agree sceners are a peculiar bunch, and our scene is a community like no other, juggling creativity and technical prowess, often even within the same individuals. What does it do with us to create, compete and socialise in this environment, and how can we take care of our own and others’ wellbeing? We explore the psychology behind the demoscene, demoparties and demomaking with Tom, who does not just create amazing Atari-demos with Genesis Project, Effect and SMFX, but also lectures on Community Psychology at the University of Leeds. We appreciate that even two hours can’t do justice to all angles of this complex topic. If you would like to share your thoughts, stories and questions, send them to zineradioshow@scene.org or to our social media accounts. If you are interested and we receive enough feedback, we might produce a follow-up in the future. **Disclaimer**: If you are in distress or have a medical emergency, please seek out professional help immediately: https://findahelpline.com/ Links in the episode: Back In Time, Bergen: https://backintime.no/ TRSAC Demoparty, Denmark: http://trsac.dk/ Demoscene Discord: https://discord.gg/76nuRVzqS3 Sommarhack Party: https://dhs.nu/sommarhack/2022/ Tom on Demozoo: https://demozoo.org/sceners/73804/ Credits: Hosts: Axel, Okkie, Ziphoid Producer: Shana Editing and Sound Engineering: lug00ber Cover Art: Critikill

#25 - The Newcomer Experience with Tobach
The Scene is Dead! Or is it? How do newcomers experience the demoscene when joining these days, and how did the pandemic and lack of physical events impact them? We are talking to Tobach, famed for sheep and fantastic demos on exotic devices - and give Okkie a good while to talk about the release of his first demo (he did it, people!!)

#23 - For Easter is a Sceners Christmas with Steeler
#23 - For Easter is a Sceners Christmas with Steeler
25 years ago in Northern Germany, an Amiga/C64 demoparty called "Symposium" and a PC demoparty called "Mekka" decided to merge into one common demoscene event on Easter, bringing the home computer and PC demoscene under one roof - Something almost unthinkable at the time. This was the beginning of a tradition that was eventually carried on by Breakpoint and resulted in Revision, the world's biggest pure demoparty. Ah, the kids we were...! But wait, what about kids today? In the second half of the episode, we explore how kids perceive the digital world today, how they enter it, concepts and pitfalls of current media education, and if the demoscene can still be relevant for this generation. So what better time of the year to invite Steeler, orga of Mekka & Symposium as well as a media education advisor these days, looking all the way from the 1980s and compare it to the next generation's approach to creativity and tinkering. Lean back and get ready for a MASSIVE episode!

#22 - Beyond the Scene: Algoraves with Alex McLean
For the first time in a long while, we are venturing beyond our own realms, and invite a guest from a scene not so different from ours: We have a chat with Alex McLean, a key figure of the Algorave movement, about the similarities and differences of our scenes and creative process. Let's see if we can draw some inspiration from each other! Algoraves have been an ever-growing trend over the past ten years, in which musicians livecode their music to please the dancing masses. Also, we chat about the Revision Satellites, share some exclusive insights into the survey they held earlier in the year, and reflect on Lovebyte that just happened prior to recording (and get Okkie to say "...in DOOOOOS" one more time.)

Also, we finally get an answer to okkie’s burning question on the origins of TPOLM’s group name and wallow in memories of a time where we were not only immature teenagers, but also produced some awesome diskmags.

#18 Themed music compos, IQ talks Shadertoy
We kick off this month with an audience question: Are themed music compos a net positive or net negative? Is there a loss of interest in music compos in general? After that, a discussion about demos using stock assets and commercial engines - is it worth it? Should it be shunned upon? Finally, the legend himself, IQ joins us to tell us the story and beginnings of Shadertoy, how he views the growth of the site and what makes it special, and retells some parts of his stellar career, how his beginnings in the scene allowed him to have it, and his views on the direction of the scene.

#16 Even nostalgia isn't the same anymore
The scene is nothing if not a giant ball of sobbing about how everything was better when computers were just growing their eighth bit - but is that a good thing? Are we taking up the space from the future with the past? What's better, to make a fresh demo on an old platform, or an old demo on a fresh platform?

#15 The joy of livecoding - with Flopine
There's just no denying it: over the last few years the livecoding craze took the demoscene by storm - but what is it? Is it part of the scene? How does it project onto the scene? Where does it meet the scene and where does it avoid it? We sit down with Flopine, the perhaps most prominent personality of the livecoding community, to gain more understanding of what it is and what it isn't, and what her experiences are in the field. Finally, we also have a call to action for you. Send us your questions, suggestions and voice messages to zineradioshow@scene.org Join the discussion on the Demoscene Discord server or our own.

Most of us have been in the scene for a decade or more - so much that it's become second nature. But in 2021, with the massive reach of social media and various other computer art outlets gaining popularity - why would anyone else start making demos? Are we just doing it out of nostalgia and muscle memory? The show takes a look at the shifting relevance of the scene!

#13 Is the scene’s online presence sustainable?

The curve of vaccinations slowly gives us hope of crawling back to regular party season as we look at yet another wave of online parties, and a few potentially IRL ones as well; we also discuss the aging out of demoscene websites, some cool new projects and why it’s so hard to find people to help with such projects.

#8 The new normal
The ZINE Radio Show is back! After a 10 year hiatus, Okkie and Axel return to dissect and discuss the news and hot topics of the demoscene, and they are now joined by new co-host Ziphoid for some PROFOUND BANTER! In this episode revolving around making old things new again, they obviously explain the sudden unexpected return of the podcast, what took so long, why they’re back again, and what to expect in the future, but also discuss what happened over the last decade in the scene, how the strange new world under the Coronavirus pandemic has changed the daily routine of the demoscene, and how to get your motivation back when it comes to making music.
