Oh hi there! It’s that time again, time for three chums chewing the fat that is the art and design news of the week. This show is once more hosted by Liv Siddall and the guests were Will Hudson and James Cartwright. Fancy hearing two grown men squirm as they are forced to talk about fashion shows and menstruation? Then this is the podcast for you. Enjoy!

Yep, that’s right, in this week’s pod we hear Will Hudson gushing about the mind-blowing Chanel show that happened this week. The show, which was held in the Grand Palais and resembled a Pop Art supermarket (with models) has caught everyone’s attention this week, and you can read more about it over here on i-D. We then chatted about Penguin’s exciting and uncharacteristic digital collaboration with Dare, Toronto to promote Khaled Hosseini’s novel And The Mountains Echoed.
After a short (but catchy) jingle we rejoined to talk about Arunachalam Muruganantham’s revolutionary invention that hopes to solve India’s sanitary towel problem for good. The BBC have a fascinating article about him over on their site that is worth reading and then immediately sharing with everyone you know. Inspiring stuff!
