Hey friends — bringing something a little different to you today — a slow-cooked conversation with good friend and fellow creative Simon Worthington.

We cover a lot of random things in this chat from our Queen's Gambit-inspired chess obsession, skateboarding, writing and early mornings, but the real meat and potatoes of the conversation (starting at 21 mins) is about Simon's recent decision to stop Turf & Grain — an independent magazine he's poured his life into over the last few years.

I wanted to do this for a few reasons:

  1. I love Simon and am always interested in what he has to say
  2. Nothing lasts forever and I think we need to start more about how to maturely end things/wrap up
  3. Selfishly I wanted to pick his brain and learn from the wild/crazy/incredible journey he's been on over the last few years with running one of the most impactful creative projects NI has ever seen.

So please enjoy this episode in all of it's raw, unedited glory and as always let me know what you think at matthew@bestofbelfast.org
