Bonus: Matthew Rendall on Winding Up in Cambodia
/

This week’s main episode is an interview with Matthew Rendall about how local legal context affects relationships between workers and management. Matthew is an expert in Cambodian labor law. But how he ended up in Cambodia is quite the captivating story – the stuff of movies, really. It was too long to include in the main episode and doesn’t really have anything to do with the sustainable fashion agenda. But it was also too fascinating not to share. So we decided to include as a bonus episode instead. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
