Dressed

I really love how Lydia traveled through the 15th hundreds to the. Present She speaks of every aspect of fashion. You and April are great host. Even with fashion, you deal with difficult topics like class and race. Keep up the good work.

Distracting voices

I think this is a good well researched podcast. But I keep trying to listen and find the hosts voices hard to listen to. I think maybe a different voice to present the subject matter ? You might have more listeners
