“What’s important to me is to share, and being inspired, and inspiring.” —Diane von Furstenberg
As another year comes to and end, I find myself reflecting on the inspiration gathered in 2018. It has been a year where visuals have mattered as much as words. Most of all, I have been inspired by hearing people’s stories, especially through podcasts.
Podcasts have been around for a while, but this year, this medium has become more relevant as people search for content that feels personal and informative.
There’s a podcast for every subject you can imagine! Wellness, fashion, and business are especially of interest to me. I hope you enjoy a few of these programs listed below. Please let us know if there are any podcasts that you think we should check out!
On the podcast “Dressed,” fashion historians Cassidy Zachary and April Calahan explore the “who, what, when of why we wear” with authors, curators and designers.
If you have ever wondered about the history of the colour pink, or if you interested in learning about the life of Hubert de Givenchy, then you will love listening to this treasure chest of information!
What is wellness? The Brooklyn-based podcast, Mind Body Green tries to answer this question with guests such as Dr. Mark Hyman and Amanda Chantal Bacon (the founder of Moon Juice). The truth is, there is no one answer. MBG is a balanced place to learn about the many perspectives of health and gives listeners the tools to define health and wellness for themselves.
I always look forward to hear what Almost 30 hosts Krista Williams and Lindsey Simcik are up to, whether that’s exploring the medicinal benefits of mushrooms or discussing the power of one’s voice with Princess Diana’s vocal coach. Their program sets the standard of what podcasts should be.
The hosts created this podcast as they approached 30, to navigate the transition between youth and adulthood. But really, this program inspires listeners to hold onto the feeling of youthful wonder and possibility whether they are 29, 45 or 60.
Imran Amed’s Business of Fashion has become one of the most reliable sources for fashion reportage.
BOF’s productions reveal the hard work, passion and vision designers, models, and editors dedicate to the industry. They recently launched a second podcast called “Drive,” which provides a glimpse of how fashion entrepreneurs created their businesses.
