About Common Threads

Common Threads is an ethical fashion podcast hosted by Alice Cruickshank and Ruth MacGilp. We go beyond hot button topics and PR-pedalling interviews, and instead dive deep into what really matters. From #PayUp to PPE, greenwashing to vintage, every week we chat about a different issue with a little help from a diverse range of guests.
