The Funambulist Podcast Nº124: A Conversation Around Clothing Politics

by The Funambulist Podcast & Léopold Lambert


December 3, 2017

This conversation was recorded with Hoda Katebi, the self-defined “sarcastic (& angry) Muslim-Iranian writer, photographer, and activist living in Chicago” behind the political fashion blog JooJoo Azad (“free bird” in Farsi) to be featured in The Funambulist 15 (Jan-Feb. 2018) Clothing Politics #2.
