podcast party

When meeting new people, the safest and favorite topic of mine to explore is books (you can tell just about all you need to know by what someone reads, and also make an instant friend because books= bonding). Recently though, podcasts have become a new favorite point of conversation. A lesser commitment than a 400 page work of historical fiction, everyone seems to have suggestions and favorites! A perfect way to pass a commute or plane trip, here are a few of my current subscriptions…

99% Invisible// Roman Mars is well into the 200th episode of this podcast, so I am clearly late to the party, but better late than never. Each episode delves into the power of design and architecture with a lense of how if effects our daily existence. Mars seeks to point out the daily design that we miss and brings a new appreciation while weaving in historical background. (Airs Weekly)

Up First// Hosted by NPR this 12 minute news reel is how I start my drive in to work every day. With access to all of NPR’s international correspondents, this world news program fills you in on what you missed overnight. A great synopsis when you are on the go. (Airs Daily)

Revisionist History// Malcolm Gladwell dives into issues, people, places, and events that have been overlooked or misunderstood. The second season concluded this past week and I can honestly say I have never skipped an episode, each one is completely different and eye opening. (Airs weekly)

Young House Love Has A Podcast// Sherri and John Petersik host this entertaining half hour program regarding all things home and family related. They are currently in the midst of building a beach house and share the wins and losses with good humor. *The home improvement/ design tips are a simply a bonus. (Airs weekly)

Design Matters// Hosted by Debbie Millman, this podcast is for the free spirits out there. Interviewing industry leaders throughout the graphic design, change makers, artists, educators, and writers, this is always an eye opening 30 minutes for me. (Airs weekly)

How I Built This// Another NPR winner targeted at the curious among us. The podcast explores innovators, entrepreneurs, and idealists, and the stories behind the movements they built. (Airs weekly)

  1. Love this post! How I Built This is one of my absolute favorite podcasts. Here are a couple others I’ve really enjoyed…

    Rough Translation by NPR – This podcast explores relevant US issues (such as race, and fake news) and how other countries are dealing with the same issues.

    Sincerely, X by Audible x Ted – A forum where people can express their ideas anonymously based on life experiences they’ve had.

    More Perfect by RadioLab – Oldie but goodie. Dives into the Supreme Court and it’s purpose and history.

    Success! How I Did It – not as good as How I Bulit This but similar.

    Ted Talks Daily by NPR – delivers one TED talk a day, great short listen.

    Anyway I could go one for days…xoxox
