“The Measure of Everyday Life” is a weekly public radio program featuring researchers, practitioners, and professionals discussing their work to improve the human condition. Independent Weekly has called the show ‘unexpected’ and ‘diverse’ and notes that the show ‘brings big questions to radio.'

Episodes air Sunday nights at 6:30 PM EST in the Raleigh-Durham, NC, media market (and also are streamed internationally through WNCU) and are available online the Wednesday following the original airing. WNCU produces the show with major underwriting from the nonprofit RTI International.

Fashion influences more than your appearance. How you look affects the ways we function and perform in society and how others treat us. In this episode, we speak with Emily Law (NC State University) about the relationships between what we wear and how we perform in the world. We also feature a special segment from Jinny Yoon (Duke University) about the ways tattoos influence our perceptions of ourselves and of others.
