Fashion fiends, history buffs, political junkies - the show you've all been waiting for has arrived. I am very happy to be able to speak with Roxy Haji and Kimi Gallegos of Old News Co. about the intersection of fashion, history, and political discourse. 

We discuss: 

  • Things that people who love history can pursue in the real word that do not necessarily involve the traditional historian career path.
  • The connection between studying fashion and studying history...yes, there is one :) 
  • A non-partisan approach to business in a politically charged era.
  • Listening to people with whom you do not necessarily agree.
  • The fine line between commemoration and trivialization.
  • Maybe some news about James Buchanan. 
  • The future of political fashion. 

You'll want to check out the book recs, of course...Kimi suggests we check out the controversial but extraordinarily important A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn and Roxy says we need to check out The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism by Doris Kearns Goodwin. Done and done.
