Articles of Interest is a show about what we wear.
Produced and Hosted by Avery Trufelman
The Clueless Closet
Ever since 1995, a generation has been dreaming of Cher’s digital closet from the movie Clueless. So why don’t we have it yet? It’s not the technology. It’s a psychological problem with the way fashion works.
The pointe shoe is a design that balances at the very tip of both tradition and innovation. What can make it change?

Prison Uniforms (with Ear Hustle)
Prison uniforms are not, in fact, uniform. There are so many types of clothes that are worn across different facilities… including … some prisons that don’t have uniforms at all.
This episode is a special collaboration between Articles Of Interest and Ear Hustle, dropping on both of our feeds. For images of the Broad Arrow, and to see a prison without uniforms, go to articlesofinterest.substack.com
Insightful and Informative
One of the best pod casts I have listened to. I have learned so much about things that I knew were out there but no one talks about! So well put together and really fun to listen to. After each episode I find myself looking things up and buying books to learn more. A must listen for anyone who loves fashion, history and pop culture.
I found your show at the perfect time!
I found the series “American Ivy” just when I was transitioning from a stay-at-home-mom to a teacher. I had been out of the workforce for over 13 years and had no idea how I wanted to dress. I knew before the first episode was over that my style would be altered forever!
Thank you for this show and all the interesting elements of fashion you present!
So insightful, makes regular stuff more meaningful
I love your topics, research, and presentation style. The preppy stuff helped me understand street fashion so much better, and understand yet another way the industry has appropriated Black style. I respectfully request an episode on boho, please.
