    My guest today is Mindy Seu: designer, professor, researcher, and editor of 'Cyberfeminism Index' in which “hackers, scholars, artists, and activists of all regions, races and sexual orientations consider how humans might reconstruct themselves by way of technology.” Featuring more than 700 short entries of multimedia activism, the Index is A rich resource for anyone interested in technology, feminism, and the intersection between the two.
    After her book was recommended by the New York publicist Gia Kuan on a previous episode of this very podcast, I knew I wanted to speak more with Mindy about her broad range of interests and ideas. In this epsiode we cover everything from publishing as an art practice, to TikTok restocking videos, to the etymology of the word ‘ergonomic’. I hope you enjoy it!

    My guest today is Recho Omondi, host of The Cutting Room Floor. You might have been following Recho’s podcast since its inception in 2018. Or you may have heard of Recho just recently, after a clip from her January 2024 interview with Yasiin Bey aka Mos Def went very, very viral.
    Either way, Recho is a thinker and interviewer to have on your radar. I hope you enjoy the conversation

    Club Vintage founder Anna Z Gray on Thoughtful Consumerism, Curation, and Women Writing about Women

    Today’s episode of Deep Read is a conversation with Anna Z Gray, writer and founder of Club Vintage, the self-described “department store of vintage sellers”. 
    I met Anna several years ago when we were both living in New York City and Anna was writing ‘Things I Would Buy If I Didn’t Have to Pay Rent’ - a very funny shopping newsletter filled with beautiful pieces you  won’t find on an IG influencer’s Amazon storefront. These days, Anna still writes the newsletter and has also parlayed her distinctive taste into Club Vintage, which offers a platform for vintage sellers to sell their wares from stylish brick-and-mortar locations in New York and LA. 
    Having long appreciated Anna’s idiosyncratic writing voice and curious approach to life, I was glad to have the opportunity to speak with her about consumerism, curation, cults, and much more.

    My guest today is the journalist and editor, Olivia Singer. Since getting her start in fashion features at Another Magazine, Olivia has risen the ranks of British style media, later going on to work as fashion news director at British Vogue before assuming her current title as Global Editorial Director of i-D Magazine.
    In an extremely noisy media landscape, Olivia possesses a clear, unique voice that manages to rise above the din and has a distinct monochromatic uniform to match. I like Olivia because she takes her job seriously but not herself, and she has intelligent opinions on everything from feminism to fashion resale sites as you’ll hear in the conversation. I hope you enjoy it.

    Photographer Shaniqwa Jarvis: Circling back on Yourself, The Politics of Photography, The Art of Creative Business

    Photographer Shaniqwa Jarvis: Circling back on Yourself, The Politics of Photography, The Art of Creative Business

    My guest today is the photographer Shaniqwa Jarvis (aka @sheekswinsalways - her long-standing Instagram handle that has an unexpected backstory, as we discussed during the podcast!)
    Shaniqwa is one of those friends I’ve known for so long that I can’t quite remember when we met. Suffice to say it was a while back. Over the years, it’s been a pleasure to watch Shaniqwa gain recognition as a prolific and highly-regarded image-maker, who subjects include Cardi B, David Byrne, Erykah Badu, and former President Barack Obama in the last few years alone.
    Even though we’ve known each other for so long, this conversation was the first time I’ve had the chance to properly ask Shaniqwa about her upbringing as a native New Yorker, her experiences navigating the white male-dominated photography industry as a Black woman, and her philosophy on building a creative career that goes the distance. We also talk at length about her photographic inspirations, her artistic philosophy and, of course, the books that have shaped her.

    My guest today is the publicist and creative consultant, Gia Kuan. Raised between Taipei, the Dominican Republic, New Zealand, and Australia, Gia is now based in New York City, where she runs the go-to PR firm for the city’s coolest and most cutting-edge fashion brands.
    On a muggy New York day in October, we sat down to discuss her nomadic childhood, her early days in (and later, running!) the club, and her thoughts on PR in an era of ubiquitous personal branding, among many other things.
    I hope you enjoy the conversation.
