WE’RE BACK! And thrilled to be launching season two of The Polyester Podcast with our new producer and co-host Olivia Graham. We’re sticking to the same format as season one, and are super excited to welcome two long term Polyester contributors on as our guests this week.
Kicking off with ask an expert, we speak to philosophy PhD candidate and self proclaimed ‘lazy feminist vlogger’ Celia Edell on how to combat imposter syndrome. From the constant dread that you aren’t good enough, to dealing with entering a male-dominated environment such as academia, and dispelling the genius myth; Celia will disclose all she has learned in her years of experience in fighting off the dreaded feeling that you don’t belong.
For the first of this seasons obsessions series, we’re talking to illustrator and multi-disciplinary artist Brie Moreno — who will be telling us all about her long love affair with thrifting. We chat with Brie about using proxies to bypass location barriers and shop the best pre-loved designer items that Japanese auction sites have to offer, using her second hand finds as mood boards for her artistic practice and finding love in shopping sustainably.
As well as illustration, Brie has recently cultivated a love of jewellery making. And in partnership with Depop, we’ve created our very own Polyester Depop shop to offer our listeners the chance to own one of Brie’s hand cast, resin rings. One of a kind, all proceeds from the sale being donated to RAICES (Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services), the charity of Brie’s choice.
Click here to have a look, or search ‘polyesterzine’ in the Depop app and follow our shop! Every episode we’ll be uploading special and exclusive items from our guests to raise money for charity.
