Fabulous

The episode on Dior was wonderful - and a great preparation for visiting the exhibition at the V&A.

Boring

I really liked the first season, but the second season is painfully boring. The interview format isn’t as effective, and I lose interest real quick. I do like the fhm episodes though.

I Keep Trying

I want to like this podcast. The conversations about Worth and fashion houses through the decades are interesting. However, these ladies are not seated in historical knowledge (as other people have noted). Inaccuracies and some light plagiarism abound. Some of the information about voting on the 19th amendment was lifted straight out of a RadioLab episode, and Robert K did a better job with it.

I love parts of their episodes so much. Discussions about fashion collections and when they talk about the fashion mysteries are highlights for me because they *really* know their topic. It’s harder to listen to when it’s clear that they never made it past basic history classes and don’t know how to frame things properly. A little fact checking and some “how to pronounce this” would improve the podcast significantly.

They are experts in their fields and it shows, both for the betterment of the show and sometimes it’s detriment. Keep going and improving!
