Articles of Interest

Created by Avery Trufelman, Articles of Interest is a project of 99% Invisible. It covers a broad range of concepts including the rise of casual wear, the environmental impact of the textile industry and why womenswear doesn’t have pockets. Together, the episodes link thematically, each one to the next, like a daisy chain. Think of it as a podcast concept album … on clothes.
