Charla Tedrick is the alt designer whose shoes look more like works of art that pay tribute to trashy rock‘n’roll and punk rock from the past than they do actual shoes. Covered in buckles and studs, leather and plaid, it’s really easy to see why Char’s designs are such a hit with alt women, really across the globe. She designed for Betsey Johnson, and brought the very popular brand Dolls Kill to everybody’s attention as their first head designer. Char and I speak about fashion from the underground, striking out on your own, and figuring out the best way to be a mother while running your own business.Follow Charla:@charla_tedrickcharlatedrick.comThis episode is brought to you by PinkCherry.

Jenny Woo performs as a solo acoustic Oi act. She grew up in Edmonton, Canada, where she was a biracial woman playing in punk and Oi bands since her teens. As a Chinese-Canadian, she never really felt like she fit in, and as a woman, she really had to carve out a space for herself in the local punk scene. Jenny and I speak about what it means to be a working-class musician, her identity, and what it means to be a skinhead to her.Follow Jenny:@jennywoooiThis episode is brought to you by PinkCherry.
