Since moving to New York from San Francisco my podcast consumption has skyrocketed, and I've started to run out of material, so I started asking around.
Yesterday a fellow grad student turned me on to 99% Invisible, and my life changed the same way it did when I discovered Radio Lab, This American Life, Mike Duncan's The History of Rome, or Stuff You Should Know (by the team that produces How Stuff Works).
Named after the principle that good design is 99% invisible, this blog is funded in part by the the American Institute of Architects, San Francisco and the Center for Architecture and Design. Each episode is about 10 minutes, and includes topics on sound arts, civics, material history, branding, and that's just as far as I could get between the West Village and Brooklyn.
Listen up, you won't regret it.
