On this episode we’re joined by Virginia Postrel to discuss her book, The Fabric of Civilization, How Textiles Changed the World. As the book’s description explains, “since the first thread was spun, the need for textiles has driven technology, business, politics, and culture” and in this episode we touch on all of that… plus a little college sports.
