Alicia Menendez sits down with Claire Lehmann, founder and editor of Quillette, to discuss why she’s determined to prod the boundaries of acceptable discourse.
I watched this in hopes of having a better idea of what Quillette’s editorial stance actually is. I’ve read several articles over the past year including many mentioned in the interview, but I’m less sure of what they stand for now than before. Many of their articles seem to me to be a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing in the end. They definitely get readership and have a lot of debate, but somehow in the end I just don’t get it. This interview didn’t seem to burnish their brand at all.
