The Conversations

Welcome to The Conversations - with Jason Campbell and Henrietta Gallina. We started our DIY podcast as a means to document our frequent conversations about fashion and culture. We’re hoping to develop and evolve our outlook throughout this process and speak to others who can help to inform and push our conversations forward. We’re just two friends with a lot opinions and we hope you enjoy and participate in The Conversations.
