    Where Have All the Preppies Gone? with Avery Trufelman

    Where Have All the Preppies Gone? with Avery Trufelman

    Put on your Docksiders for a stroll through history with Avery Trufelman, who shows us how Ivy style became “preppy,” and how preppy fashion escaped the campus and took over the world. We’re talking about clothing, class, race, and the American dream: you may be through with the polo shirt, but the polo shirt isn’t through with you.

    Here's where to find Avery:

    A Tiny Concert, Just For You

    A Tiny Concert, Just For You

    For the past year, Carolyn Kendrick has been producing You're Wrong About. I love working with her every day, and being on tour with her for these live shows meant that I got to walk onstage after she had performed her music, which basically took away all of my nerves: she makes a space with her heart and voice and hands that I feel safe inside of. If you listen to this show, you know Carolyn is a wonderful producer. But you may not know what it feels like to be in the presence of her songs. We wanted to share this live show set with you, because you deserve to stand in that space too.

    Carolyn also has a new single coming out November 4th! If you’re interested in more of Carolyn's music, sign up for her newsletter here:

    shorturl.at/afhA3

    Or find her on Bandcamp:

    https://carolynkendrick.bandcamp.com/

    Song Order:

    Weatherman by (Carolyn Kendrick)
    Sew Me Up (by Carolyn Kendrick)
    These Days (by Jackson Browne)
    Good Bones (words by Maggie Smith, music by Carolyn Kendrick)

    Love, and happy Halloweeeeeeeeeen!

Much love to YWA

Only YWA could have me be so invested in learning about how Jessica Simpson was maligned in our early-aughts society.

My friend texted me a few months back, telling me to listen to the YWA “Go Ask Alice” episodes, since she knows I was a huge fan of that debunking, and Carmen Maria-Machado. From the on I was HOOKED and have since listened to almost all episodes. So well researched, and love all the guest hosts. I always look forward to every other Tuesday to listen to new YWA :)

Great show

I continue to enjoy and learn from this podcast.
To the reviewers complaining that they “talk to much”…..it’s a PODCAST. And also complaining about a persons speech style? Keep it to yourself cause trust all you did was make yourself look like a massive d*?%hole.

Preppy Show

Great show, but Kennedy’s assassination was in the 1960’s?
