Have you ever wondered what’s behind certain items of clothing? Common styles, like kids clothes, plaid and even Hawaiian shirts are garments we see all the time, but often we don’t even begin to think about where they came from. Well, host of the show Articles of Interest Avery Trufelman is interested in exactly that. In the podcast, Avery dissects the hidden histories of the clothes we take for granted – and in the latest season she explores the rise of “preppy” clothing. She joins Leah-Simone Bowen to share her career in podcasting, her beginnings as part of the hit show 99% Invisible, her views of podcasting as an art form and why “mainstream” culture is actually surprisingly counter-cultural. Plus, we’ll hear some of her favourite podcasts, and she shares her love of late designer Vivianne Westwood. Podcasts featured this week: Articles of Interest, Millennial History, 99% Invisible, Natch Beaut, Imaginary Advice For links and more info on these shows, head to https://cbc.ca/podcastplaylist
