When you meet Aurora James, CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund-winning designer of Brother Vellies -- a footwear-centric accessories label that works with artisans in Africa -- her shoes make a lot of sense.

Katie Alice Greer was born to a minister in Michigan, where she spent her childhood feeling lonely, getting herself grounded and discovering Jock Jams compilations and Motown music. She's now the lead vocalist of Priests, a D.C.-based punk band that's made a name for itself in music and political spheres alike. Spin recently dubbed Priests "activist rock," but Greer says they didn't set out to be an explicitly political band, it just kind of happened. "Music is inherently political, everything is political," Greer told Paula Mejia of Rolling Stone on the heels of the D.C. event she'd helped organize on Inauguration Day, called "No Thanks: A Night of Anti-Fascist Sounds."

This week's episode of Oh Boy, a conversation between Greer and our host Jay Buim, comes at an interesting time. While a lot of us are quietly navigating the clashing of culture and politics, Greer is doing so on a very public stage. On purpose.

Today’s episode of Oh Boy features none other than Gail Simmons. It will comfort you to know that Simmons, like everyone else, didn’t have a clue what she wanted to do after college. She didn’t really know what she wanted to do while in college, either. In fact…she didn’t even know anything about food, according to a food editor she spoke to while hunting for her first job. So how did she get to be who she is and where she is, with two hit shows -- Top Chef and Top Chef: Just Desserts -- and a published book with a title that proclaims, “I have the best job ever!” (It’s called “Talking With My Mouth Full: My Life As a Professional Eater,” hello!)? Wellll…you just have to plug in your headphones and listen to this episode, don’t you?

Jenn Rogien's a real jerk! The costumer designer of GIRLS and Orange is the New Black doesn't like sour pickles, brownies or apple pie.

Other than that, though, she's perfectly delightful, which you'll come to find in this episode of Oh Boy that's all about her young life growing up in the Rockies (she still owns a canner -- as in, to can pickled things that aren't sour), her formative years in a liberal college town, how she found creative, crafty loopholes in any and every school project, and of course, how she came to be exactly who she is and how she got arguably one of the coolest jobs on the planet. I will tell you this: it didn't just happen by dumb luck.

Girls! You know the drill. Headphones in, and enjoy.
