Pre-Loved Podcast with Emily Stochl

Nov 13, 2023

Pre-Loved Podcast is a weekly vintage fashion interview show, with guests you’ll want to go thrifting with! For more Pre-Loved Podcast, subscribe to our Patreon!

Today’s episode is a re-issue (a vintage episode from our archives!) of an interview with Ellen, the founder and editor in chief of Mildew Magazine, a brand new print magazine about vintage and secondhand fashion! 

For several years, Ellen has been the deputy editor of Broccoli – a magazine for cannabis lovers – and also the deputy editor of Mushroom People, a magazine for mushroom hunters! She’s the co-founder of Neuro Fuzzy Press, and indie press that publishes zines with work from emerging artists. 

And now we have Mildew, the Secondhand Fashion Magazine – available now for pre-order! I’m so proud to say I’m a contributing writer for this magazine, and I can’t wait for you to hear all about the piece + plus the other incredible sounding features that will be in this first issue. 

So, let’s dive right in!


  • [5:44] How Ellen got into vintage and secondhand fashion.
  • [9:20] Ellen’s career journey working for indie presses and magazines.
  • [15:35] Ellen joins Broccoli Magazine as Deputy Editor.
  • [22:50] How it all culminated in creating an indie magazine about vintage and secondhand fashion.
  • [48:10] Stories about the favorite pieces in Ellen’s vintage collection.
