Having Faith in Your Own Bad Taste with Ione Gamble

Listen on

Episode notes

Hey Body Protestors! This week, Honey and Nadia speak with the phenomenal Ione Gamble, founder and editor in chief of the exceptionally chic Polyester Zine, host of the polyester podcast and soon to be debut author with her first collection Essays coming out next year, Poor Little Sick Girls. Ione shares about her experience as a chronically ill, working class, plus sized woman, navigating the typically inhospitable fashion industry - and how she carved out a space for herself and others, by having faith in her own "bad" taste.

This episode’s knowledge noodle is on body image and chronic illness.
