The Great Outdoors (TGO) is the premiere backpacking publication in Europe, kind of like Backpacker Magazine in the U.S..  I was super fortunate to be interviewed by TGO for their Light and Fast Gear expert series. While unfortunately the magazine is super hard to get here in the States, our friends over at Trail Designs, the guys who make the ultralight backpacking stove I use, were able to scan it and put it up on their website. If you happen to be in the UK, or have a digital subscription, be sure to check this one out!
