It's Been a Minute Mar 17 · 25m Silicon Valley Bank and the sordid history of 'Palo Alto'Even after Silicon Valley Bank crumbled and tech workers have been laid off in the thousands, Silicon Valley is still surrounded by a mythos of progress and futurity. Host Brittany Luse talks to author Malcolm Harris about his new book, Palo Alto: A History of California, Capitalism, and the World, to break down how that mythos was built, the dark underbelly underneath it, and why the tech industry is a microcosm of American capitalism.

Pre-Loved Podcast with Emily Stochl Mar 20 · 54m S7 Ep7 LUCKY SWEATER: Carley Lake, co-founder of a slow fashion trading community app - on why community and circularity is at the center of it all.Pre-Loved Podcast is a weekly vintage fashion interview show, with guests you’ll want to go thrifting with! For more Pre-Loved Podcast, subscribe to our Patreon! Today’s show is with Carley Lake, the co-founder of Lucky Sweater. Carely first discovered thrifting when her dad introduced her to the stores on Melrose Ave. in LA, back when she was at the peak of her fast fashion addiction in high school. On this episode, we’ll chat through Carley’s whole journey that led to Lucky Sweater – how she started a sustainable fashion site called Thoughtful Flamingo, and her experience on the groundfloor at Uber where she co-launched Uber’s women safety program and Community Guidelines. But what led Carley to the Lucky Sweater idea? She missed finding community through clothing! Lucky Sweater is a community app that allows users to connect and trade clothing with like-minded communities. Lucky Sweater’s first community trading space was focused on slow and sustainable fashion brands, and the team recently launched a community for makers to trade handmade clothing, accessories, and supplies. We chat about all this and more on today’s episode, so let’s just dive right in! DISCUSSED IN THE EPISODE: [3:27] Growing up during peak “mall culture” in Los Angeles. [6:11] How Carley’s dad exposed her to Melrose Ave. thrifting. [12:23] Carley’s entry into tech as one of the first 500 employees at Uber, working on the launch team for Uber Eats and co-launching Uber’s Community Guidelines. [14:05] Starting her blog, Thoughtful Flamingo, and how the conversations she had inspired Lucky Sweater. [15:23] Early clothing trading communities on Instagram and Reddit. [22:38] Lucky Sweater’s focus on slow trading to not contribute to overconsumption and “haul culture” with secondhand. [23:08] Carely’s learnings from being a first time founder and entrepreneur. [29:37] How trading lowers the barrier to entry on slow fashion. [35:49] The launch of a me-made trading community on Lucky Sweater where you can swap handmade clothing, accessories, and supplies.

Mention It All Mar 17 · 21m Puttin’ on the Ritz… Cracker (Top Chef)On this week’s Top Chef episode, Dylan begins with a rant about why Last Chance Kitchen isn’t available on Peacock. What year is it??? Then, he gets into the Ritz cracker-themed Quickfire, which requires Padma to take some unnecessarily large bites. The rice challenge proves underwhelming, but a high-stakes LCK kickoff ends the episode on a high note.
