Brilliant!

Fantastic podcast with such a range of topics! Sometimes I look at a title and think not really something I’m interested in to then be amazed by the subject!

DecentGilda ,

Perfect podcast for fashion history obsessives

Discovered this podcast recently and I love it. Both presenters really know their stuff across a wide range of fashion history topics, and the calibre of the guests is fantastic, people like Barbara Hulanicki and Pat Cleveland - wow! Thank you for a fantastic listen.

Fascinating

I’ve really enjoyed listening to this, especially whilst sewing at home! Always learn something new.
