Bad On Paper

Nov 3, 2021

This week we interviewed Grace Bonney, founder of Design Sponge to talk about her new book, Collective Wisdom! We learn how she got to where she is today, what inspired her to write a book about women over 50, how she found the women featured in her book, and the interviews that had the greatest impact on her.


We also talk about Design Sponge, how it felt to close it down on her terms, and her thoughts on going back to school as an adult!
