Shea McGee: Interior Designer and Co-Founder of Studio McGee and McGee & Co.

Shea McGee: Interior Designer and Co-Founder of Studio McGee and McGee & Co.

Shea McGee is an interior designer and the co-founder of Studio McGee and McGee & Co. Shea originally worked in communications, but after redecorating her first home with her husband and eventual co-founder, Syd McGee, she found that she had a natural talent for design. She took interior design classes at her local community college to build skills and confidence and attracted clients in her neighborhood and on Instagram. In 2014, she and Syd took a chance and sold their house in California, using the proceeds to move to Salt Lake City and launch their business. Soon, Shea’s classic yet modern style and behind-the-scenes looks on social media were attracting customers from all over the country. She built a virtual design services business and eventually, an e-commerce business with the launch of McGee & Co. Shea also starred in the Netflix renovation show Dream Home Makeover and designs a line of furniture with Target named Threshold Designed With Studio McGee.

The Who What Wear Podcast: Mary Beth Barone and Benito Skinner on Fashion in Stand-Up Comedy, the Value of Vintage, and the Designers They Ride For

explicit

We absolutely ride for Mary Beth Barone and Benito Skinner. While the comedians, podcasters, and real-life besties are known for their creativity and unmatched banter, their incredible personal style and love for fashion can’t be overlooked. The two have become regulars at various runway shows; Mary Beth wore a 1999 Versace dress for her latest stand-up special; and Benito’s IG feed is splattered with outfits from Dior and JW Anderson. Today, they join us to talk about Benito’s recently ordered Amazon show, Overcompensating, Mary Beth’s upcoming Pillow Talk Tour, and, of course, all things fashion—from their dream collab designers to the impact drag queens have on their performance outfits. Plus, stay tuned for news on Ride season 2 (which drops today!) and how Lizzie McGuire shaped the pair's personal style.

Kim and Vanessa Pham: Omsom Co-Founders

Kim and Vanessa Pham: Omsom Co-Founders

Kim and Vanessa Pham are the founders of Omsom, an Asian sauce and noodles brand. As the children of Vietnamese refugees who grew up in Boston, they always loved their traditional cuisine, but they often felt ostracized by their peers for it. So, decades later, after stints in start-ups and management consulting, the sisters decided to quit their jobs and found a brand that would help build the world they wanted to live in. In 2020, Omsom was born, and despite a pandemic-era launch, they sold out of their original product line in 72 hours. Since then, the two have scaled up the brand, releasing new products like saucy noodles and partnering with Asian chefs to create unique recipes. Most recently, in June 2024, they were acquired by DayDayCook. Throughout the process, they’ve done all of this to increase access to authentic Asian flavors and break Asian cuisine out of the confines of the “ethnic foods” aisle.
