Halloween Is A State Of Mind
After a loooong hiatus, your fav BM podcasters are back to talk about all things Halloween! jL reads his original story behind the Ghouls Night In collection – what would it be like to actually be trapped in a horror movie? jL and Sam take a detailed look at some key Halloween products, including the fluffy purple number known colloquially as the Grimace jacket, burned velvet cats (which are anatomically correct in one particular region…) and all the spoopy kitties, pumpkins and brains you could wish for. Plus: jL reveals his very strange driving habits...
It’s the final podcast of the year! jL and Sam take a look back at the craziness of 2020: the high points (Tiger King, Baby Yoda, jL getting into cardio), the low points (global pandemic...) and everything in between. jL explains why making clothing is like being on a rollercoaster, and his idea for a business-based reality TV show. Plus: a sneaky look at the first collection of 2021, and a surprisingly deep dive into cult 80s vampire movie The Lost Boys.
Sparkly, Shiny, Glittery Goodness
jL and Sam argue about bread, music platforms, and whether goats are cool. jL breaks down your top 5 from last week’s epic Monumental Museum release, and the standout pieces from the upcoming Stefania x BlackMilk swim collection – sparkly, shiny, glittery goodness! jL reveals some of his plans for next year (Unicornia High is coming!), while Sam reveals her surprising amount of NFL knowledge. Plus: strappy bodysuits, anyone?
Stop! Collaborate and Listen
jL surprises Sam with a 90's quiz to kick off the episode (how many will you get right?). They chat about some of the exciting things we've got coming up (hello exciting new collab..😏) and start gearing up for a big 2021. No podcast would be complete without some random tangents about eyebrows, the Two Towers, Love bombs and Baby Yoda. Oh, and this is now a 'The Mummy' movie appreciation podcast until further notice...
Happy birthday to us!
jL and Sam chat about the origins of Feeding Frenzy and the top sellers from the Party Pooper release. They ask the important questions, like Are sequins the galaxy of fabrics? What unreleased samples do you want to see released? And what is the colour of a unicorn? And they reminisce about the last 11 years of BlackMilk, and celebrate our birthday!!
Become The Thunder
jL and Sam chat about all the shiny things coming in next week’s Party Pooper collection (including the return of the famous Sheer Retro Pants!) and ask: is Sam the ultimate Party Pooper? jL reveals some upcoming swim designs, his favourite Disneyland...
Love the podcast!!!
Amazing first podcast jL and Sam! It’s so amazing to be able to hear about the inspiration from collections and the inner workings of BlackMilk! As a Sharkie who doesn’t regularly listen to podcasts I found myself wishing for an accompanying document that had a list of images for the pieces you were talking about. Other than that so excited to see more ‘art girl’ pieces and can’t wait for my arrival from the Lost Treasures collection! And the museum release coming out Monday... I would love to see a loyalty program incentive too! Love your work xx
