It’s Hair Week on BTR!
Kicking things off today we have a special interview with filmmakers Jason Stefaniak and Shiobhan O’Loughlin. We featured the audio from Jason and Siobhan’s recent viral video on women’s rights, “This Is My Body,” on an episode for Help Week last month.
And later, BTR’s own Molly Freeman breaks down the best hair blogs the internet has to offer.
This spoken word segments of this week’s podcast feature the talents of Sean Avery and Kayla Reid.
