Pre-Loved Podcast: Sofi Thanhauser

Today’s show is with Sofi Thanhauser, the author of a new book Worn: A People’s History of Clothing. Sofi is a lifelong, passionate thrifter who set out with a big task: to write a history of cloth and the clothes we wear.

Worn is social history, drawn from years of intensive research and reporting around the world, and it’s brimming with fascinating stories about clothing,

On this episode, we discuss: fashion and “women’s wages,” the female garment makers who were leaders of the 20th century labor movement, the impact of low prices on working conditions today, and so much more.
