Miranda Barzey on Why Style Matters
Radio Interview: Wednesday, 20 June 2012
In the live broadcast of Philosophy in Action Radio on Wednesday, 20 June 2012, I interviewed Miranda Barzey on why style matters.
Many people dismiss personal style of dress as unimportant. Yet in fact, a person's style communicates far more to others than most people imagine. So what can a person do to cultivate his or her own personal style? How can a person implement that in his or her wardrobe?
Miranda Barzey is the owner of Redress Style Consulting based in Atlanta, Georgia.
Note: My apologies about the periodic popping noises.

About Philosophy in Action Radio
I'm Dr. Diana Hsieh. I'm a philosopher specializing the application of rational principles to the challenges of real life. I received my Ph.D in philosophy from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2009. My dissertation defended moral responsibility and moral judgment against the doubts raised by Thomas Nagel's "problem of moral luck."
My radio show, Philosophy in Action Radio, broadcasts live over the internet on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings. On Sunday mornings, I answer four meaty questions applying rational principles to the challenges of real life in a live hour-long show. Greg Perkins of Objectivist Answers co-hosts the show. On Wednesday evenings, I interview an expert guest about a topic of practical importance.
