Im loving this new series from NPR! Notes: Suroosh Alvi was a recovering addict when he started a scrappy underground magazine in Montreal. It grew into VICE Media — a multi-billion dollar company that has shaken up the world of journalism.

I've been a fan of Vice for a while and still find it incredible how it has scaled so much in the last few years. Looking forward to listening to the podcast. Suroosh needs to write a book on his journey. If this already does exist and by some miracle i've missed it, please reach out.

I absolutely love this podcast! I'm in the middle of setting up my own media co and I just love this story and the authenticity of it. Thanks for posting!
This was a really great episode. I'm also somehow had no idea that he was the founder of Vice and not Shane Smith
