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
Avery Is The Best Podcaster
Between this, Nice Try!, and 99pi, Avery Trufelman is just the best podcaster. Every show she makes, especially this one, is incredible!

Also much 💜 to Ronald Young Jr. and Sarah Dealy. I’d love to hear more episodes around fat bodies and fashion.
