Founder Deepa Sood talks about Cuff, her line of chic and secure 'smart jewelry.'
Lean In, an organization founded by Sheryl Sandberg to encourage the empowerment of women, has partnered with the Girl Scouts of America and over a dozen other partners in a campaign to “ban ‘bossy.’” The campaign suggests that assertive young girls are labeled as “bossy,” while boys with the same qualities are considered leaders, and that the negative title makes females less interested in leadership roles. #banbossy, which is now trending across social media, has the support of many celebrities and media outlets, but has been criticized by others as a failure to teach children, specifically girls, how to ignore hurtful name calling. This week on BTR Pulse, Sarah Fraser asks people in New York what they think of the campaign.
This week on The Hash, DJs Molly and Dane discuss a teen who was convicted for distributing child pornography for sexting photos. Later they rip into the "Unsung Heroes: Nice Guys".

Happy New Year! Welcome to the first Sew & Tell of 2014! Before we run full steam ahead into a new cycle of fashion trends, news, designs, and iconic moments, I thought it would be nice to take a look back at 2013. It was a year of genuinely remarkable, distinguished guests; so much so that it was very difficult for me to narrow down the content for today’s show! But in the end, I selected clips from a handful of interviews that I felt defined the breadth and diversity of Sew & Tell’s 2013 broadcasts. Today, you’ll hear brief excerpts from my interviews with: Jenn Rogien, costume designer for HBO’s “Girls” and the Netflix original “Orange Is the New Black;” Jenni Avins, fashion journalist for NY Magazine’s “The Cut,” Wall Street Journal’s style section, and her own site, Closettour; designer Eden Miller of Cabiria, who had the historic distinction of being the first ever plus size label to show during New York Fashion Week; and Sari Azout and Sari Bibliowicz, two childhood best friends with a fashion obsession, who turned their compulsive clothes sharing habits into one of this year’s hottest fashion merchandise sites. Plus, I’ve culled music tracks for today’s show from a few of my personal favorite releases of 2013 - you’ll hear songs today off this past year’s releases from Foxygen, Phosphorescent, Volcano Choir, and Chvrches. So join us as we say a fond & fashionable farewell to 2013; out with the old & in with the new on BreakThru Radio!
