About Us

MALA is a podcast that unravels the notion of a "bad woman", the Spanish definition of MALA, a garland of flowers in Sanskrit, or in this podcast, Memory As Living Art. The first season of MALA features a house of formerly incarcerated women living in Queens, NY. The women interviewed for this project spent decades in the criminal justice system in New York State. We wanted to render their lives, before & after their convictions, as perfumes. Each fragrance is a composition of the scent memories amassed throughout their lifetime. These are notes from their childhood, of solace, of yearning, of trauma & escape. The act of releasing a scent from a vessel into the air is akin to their newfound freedom, to a life now outside. We welcome you to experience their stories. *Please note that each episode deals with intense themes that may be triggering for some listeners*
