My guest this week is film director & cinematographer Andrew Morgan, whose personal passion for storytelling has led him to create a series of beautiful, intimate pieces. His team’s latest film is “The True Cost,” a exciting documentary that takes an in-depth look at the broken links in today’s fashion production system and supply chain. On today’s show, we’ll hear from Andrew about his start in filmmaking, the moment that triggered his mission to create “The True Cost,” and how he and his team have been changed through the process of researching and developing this film.

Plus, a full-throttle music mix today featuring new tracks from Johnathan Rice, Saint Rich, Love Inks, Lizzo, MiniBoone, and more! So tune in and join us for an inspirational look at the future of fashion…
