Talking About Clothes with Holly Chayes is a seasonal podcast, where I talk about clothes with people who wear them. Regardless of how fashionable or stylish we think we are (or are not), we all wear clothes. In this podcast, we explore the depths of some of the most intimate times in our lives without shame or guilt. Each season focuses on a theme, where guests share their personal perspective on that particular topic.
