I’m so happy to have a podcast that talks about fashion in a serious way, combining art, history, technology, and anthropology, from my alma mater no less. The Museum always hosts the most interesting talks, we’re so lucky that they are now sharing them with the listening public. My only wish is if it were at all possible to provide transcripts for deaf or hard of hearing audience members. I’m HoH and could barely hear Stefano Tonchi in the Thom Browne episode.
