The last few years have seen a rise in the popularity of podcasts, and it is for good reason. Podcasts don’t require a professional host, can be done from anywhere at any time, and enable one to reach their target audience quickly, easily and affordably. They allow one and all to speak their mind; it is radio for the people by the people making topics, that might otherwise be dense and uninteresting, digestible. And they can be listened to nearly anywhere, making them perfect for the fashion tech entrepreneur on-the-go.
With podcasting increasing in popularity, you can find a podcast or two on nearly every subject. The fashion tech space, always trendsetters, has joined in.
Below are our five favorite podcasts in fashion tech:
As defined by Cristina Q., the purpose of Refashion to “accelerate the success of fashion entrepreneurs, while pushing the limits of what is possible through collaboration, knowledge and empowerment.”
The name of the podcast is a reference to the 80s movie “Legend of Billy Jean.” Sanders wanted a podcast name that would inspire her every day, and the movie protagonist–a woman willing to stand up to people in power to do what she thinks is right–does just that for her. It is that sense of female empowerment that is the driving force behind each episode.
Each episode starts out with a fashion news segment followed by the day’s main topic segment. Rowan and Vember give you insight into the industry covering topics such as pop culture, business, entrepreneurship, women’s issues within the industry and more.
The fun and conversational delivery of each episode make the information very engaging and easy to digest. Listening to one of the episodes is like having a conversation with friends over a drink or coffee and by the end, you can’t help but want to be their BFFs.
Lighthearted and boisterous, Fashion Is Your Business features discussions inspired by recent relevant news, useful in-depth interviews with industry notables, and provides a platform for business leaders and rising stars to announce startups and milestones.
