Exploring the Past with Our First-Ever ModCast

When the opportunity to collaborate with San Francisco’s Legion of Honor marched up and shook our hand, we knew we had to do something special to mark the occasion. Perfect fit? A ModCloth podcast, a.k.a. a ModCast!

We swiftly fell for the museum’s sumptuous exhibition, “The Cult of Beauty: The Victorian Avant-Garde,” which will be showing at the Legion until June 17. Bustling with peacock feathers, Egyptian influences, and Frank Lloyd Wright-like lines, the exhibit bombarded us with surprises. It wasn’t at all the steampunk carnival we’d expected. Want to know what the actual ultramodern Victorians were like? Put on those headphones and tune into the ModCast interview below!

Hope you enjoy, and let us know what you’d like to hear about in future ModCasts!

About Hannah

"Q: Where do cantaloupes go for the summer? A: John Cougar Mellon Camp!" From that joke you can surmise a few things about Hannah -- she loves a good pun, she delights in irreverence, and red peppers are her vegetable of choice. How does one figure out Hannah loves red peppers from that joke? Hmm, that's top secret. Hannah also adores outdoor activities, arts & crafts, reading, and being abroad.
