Fainting Couch Feminists Episode Sixty-Two: Let's Unpack Basic Bitches and Aritzia

Interview by 
Mica Lemiski

Mica recently went to the Aritzia Warehouse Sale and it inspired her to think deeply about so-called basic bitches and whether or not this term can be reclaimed in a meaningful way (it can! probably!). Mica also discusses the bizarre nature of the warehouse sale and shares the results of her self-led investigation into where the leftover clothes go. Mica's efforts to solve this mystery involved: embarrassing emails and unproductive phone conversations, all of which lead to some shocking insights that will change the way you shop forever!! Or not.
