About

Started by a group of graduates in 2016, Porridge is an online magazine working to bring together different disciplines, mediums, and genres.

This is a home for the intellectually curious. Porridge likes academia and popular culture, high and low cultures, and a lovely mish-mash of the two. The creative and the technical are allies here.

We take an interdisciplinary approach because life isn’t exclusively any one thing but a myriad of intersections, we want to reflect that. Find out more about the team below.
