Warning – This episode of MIPtalk contains language and themes that is NSFW and may be unsuitable for younger listeners.
Have you ever found something completely random that belonged to a complete stranger? Maybe it was a discarded love letter or to-do list. Perhaps you picked up an crumpled photograph or some torn pages for an old journal. Did you glance it at and then toss it away again or was there something so interesting about the discovery that you held on to your “find”?
This week’s guest, Davy Rothbart makes it a point to hold on to the stuff he finds. In 2001 he began curating some of the more memorable items and launched FOUND Magazine. Initially intended for his friends, the magazine quickly became a must-have collectible with everyone from urban hipsters to Hollywood celebrities.7 comments

As many of you know, we’re gradually expanding MIPtalk to include a range of new features including video. We continue to revise the program to make sure that it suits the needs and interests of our audience.
When we first launched our show in early 2009 it took some time to “find our groove’. Listener feedback helped us improve dramatically. The same is true of our new foray into video. As you’ll see in the videos we’ve posted from the 2010 Innovation and Humanity Summit, the immediacy of video creates a different experience than what we’ve done thus far. And while we’re incredibly excited about the journey ahead, we still want to hear from you. Tell us what you think; what’s working, what’s not and what should we be doing differently? All feedback is greatly appreciated and don’t worry about sparing our feelings.
There’s much more to come so stay tuned and thanks for your continued support.
