If you somehow missed our first episode (catch up here if so); we’ve started a podcast series! Released every two weeks on a Monday, we’ll be exploring what makes our favourite artists tick while seeking out expert advice on the issues that matter to us.

This episode: Polly Nor and sex expert Ruby Rare

Polly speaks to Polyester editor in chief Ione about her vintage matchbox collection, affordable art, and much more in the first half of the episode as part of our ‘obsessions’ series.
