Things are dark out there, and Beatrice and Emily are both locked in battles over essential medications, so today we’re talking about Shoes. The Panel is joined by Sophie Helf @jil_slander, whose column for Garage considers sneakers from the perspective of someone with no feet. We touch briefly on the media narratives around the government shutdown, before diving in on the finer points of bootleg sneakers, and how being an amputee can actually make you taller.
