Leading up to tonight’s National Magazine Awards, mediabistro.com has been publishing a special package of our popular interview series, “So What Do You Do?,” with daily interviews of selected nominees, ranging from well-known to obscure.

Speaking of, what is your relationship like with The New Yorker. Do you feel you compete with them directly? Is it like the Mets-Yankees?
