Gina Tonic is a freelance journalist and editor who has worked as a writer professionally for over five years.
In 2021 I guest hosted a number of Polyester Podcast episodes where we interviewed guests like Val Garland and Shona McAndrew. I currently co-host the Confessions series of The Polyester Podcast with Ione Gamble.

The Space Issue Launch at The Tate, Sister Zine
