Under the Spotlight in a Crop Top: Joel Kim Booster
When he performs stand-up, Joel Kim Booster pays a lot of attention to how he presents himself on stage. While these days his aesthetic is “Janet Jackson backup dancer, 1994,” it hasn’t always been that way. In this episode, Joel walks us through his style evolution—from a homeschooled teen obsessed with being “normal,” to a risky performer turning comedy conventions upside down.
Bun Huggers to White Oxfords: Clothing As Armor

More Episodes Please!
I really enjoyed this podcast. The episode lengths are short but good. If they all were around 20 minutes that would be perfect. Some of them felt a little brief. I would be interested in hearing the host interact more with the guests instead of editing just the sound bites. Very interested in her book too!
Fun and interesting
I really enjoyed these episodes!
Great, short, and fun little episodes! Really enjoyable fashion podcast.
