How to find the best sustainable fashion podcast for you

At the end of the day, it’s down to personal preference. But we think the right podcast should hit the sweet spot when it comes to:

  • Host – Most ethical fashion podcasts have different guests, but if you don’t vibe with the actual host, you probably won’t enjoy those episodes 
  • Focus – Sustainable fashion is a BROAD subject. So, choose a podcast that tackles the areas you care about the most or that has an angle you’re interested in
  • Duration – Some people prefer snappier 20-30 minute episodes, some others want to dive deep into each topic for a full hour (or even longer). What about you?

So, to make things easier, we’ve rounded up some of the best sustainable fashion podcasts and broken them down accordingly.
