"Even if you didn't think you were interested in design, you'll love this podcast. Take "way-finding", for example: the ways that building designers subtly tell you where to go without making signs. After listening to this podcast you'll start to notice things like the way tiles on the floor are arranged to point you towards the security line at the airport and you'll never see the world in quite the same light."

"I love design. And this podcast feeds my never ending desire to keep learning more about it - from soundscapes to architecture to everything. Amazing."

"Lots of interesting, obscure stories about things I've never heard of and things I've seen everyday. I find myself referencing this podcast quite often. "
