Good or Bad: The fanny pack is back!

In this week's light-hearted Good or Bad debate, we weigh in on the return of fanny pack fashion.
Clearly, Shad can rock the pack — but should fanny fashion make a mainstream comeback? (David and Ambrosia Vertesi)

In this week's lighthearted Good or Bad debate, we unpack the controversy surround the resurgence of fanny fashion. Does the belted pouch deserve its cultural baggage? Or is it time to accept its awkward embrace?

For insight, Shad checks in with two debaters: 

  • Writer Jaime Lowe argues that the fanny pack is not only beautiful, but also a symbol of freedom. 
  • Flare's Briony Smith couldn't disagree more.

As always, we're asking you to unapologetically pick a side. 

WEB EXTRAThe song we sampled on air, Fanny Pack by Koo Koo Kanga Roo, has a dance-a-long video. That is all.
