99% Invisible: Articles of Interest

Why do most women's clothing lack adequate pockets? How did plaid become such a ubiquitous fabric pattern? What can we learn from examining an old, well-worn pair of jeans? These and other questions about our clothes and textiles are examined in Articles of Interest, a six-part mini-series within the podcast 99% Invisible. Each approximate half-hour episode addresses a different aspect of clothing and incorporates interviews with several experts from different disciplines. For example, in "Punk" (Ep. 6), listeners are treated to conversations that include Don Letts, the DJ and videographer who created the documentary Punk: Attitude, the fashion historian Monica Sklar who wrote the book Punk Style, and Claire Wilcox, senior curator at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Articles of Interest was created by Avery Trufelman, one of the producers on the 99% Invisible team, and aired in September and October 2018. Readers can download and stream all six episodes online, or they can subscribe to 99% Invisible via Google Play, Apple Podcasts, or other platforms.
