Love Roman’s velvety voice & quirky facts

A very enjoyable podcast

Joyfully learning

Roman Mars and his very passionate team provide a lens to look at the world in a new and fascinating way. I lose myself in the well crafted and researched stories explaining how things that surround us came to be. And they tell these stories with a childlike wonder, mixed with a healthy dose of humour and compassion. Do yourself a favour and immerse yourself.

My favourite podcast

I ADORE this podcast and look forward to its release every week. Looking at the world through design is such a unique way to understand people, spaces, and history. The stories are masterfully told with a sense of curiosity and tenderness, never fails to make me smile. Thanks 99% invisible, excited to hear the next 500 episodes!
