Dropping Off a Bag of Clothes at Goodwill (that you know are out of style but you’ll still deeply miss) with Alison Becker

Cool Playlist

Alison Becker (Parks And Recreation, Kroll Show, Curb Your Enthusiasm) has created many memorable characters, but she's gotten good at letting go of the past. She asked to make a playlist for "Dropping Off a Bag of Clothes at Goodwill* (that you know are out of style but you’ll still deeply miss)" - which is just the kind of specificity we love. We talked about hoarding, ending things so you can begin others, Bon Jovi, and Starlight Express.   *Some other places, besides Goodwill, that accept clothing donations are: Dress For Success (https://dressforsuccess.org/), The Cinderella Project, local shelters, and local charity-based thrift stores (google those last three to find ones accepting donations near you.) Don't use those random donation boxes - many if not most are scams. Follow @CoolPlaylistPod and @ElizaSkinner on twitter! Check out coolplaylistpod.com to find today's playlist and more!
