The interviews and stories are so interesting. Really great podcast about the fashion industry. I just wish it was published more often.

Sends me searching

I really didn't know what to expect when I began listening to Seams, but after ten episodes in two days, I am truly blown away. Each episode sends me searching after new material to read, watch or investigate, and gets me thinking about clothing in a broader sense. Jackie Lyden has one of the greatest voices to ever be recorded and is a joy to listen to as she makes connections from what we wear to the world at large. I hope these keep coming for many years to come!
