Just start listening, any ep works
If you live in a city of any size or are curious about the modern world and the history behind it’s design, you won’t be disappointed.
This podcast makes me want to drop everything to become a civil engineer or an architect or run for office in a small town or be the weird person that asks for a funicular in the townhall… it’s awesome.
Great Show, but the Ads are annoying
Have been listening to 99pi for years. It’s one of my favorites.
Recently (automated localized) Ads started to appear at the start and end of each episode.
There should be a paid ad free version. I can’t stand the ads.
I’m from Germany and I’ve been listening to this podcast for years. It’s been a joy to be taken on these walks and journeys, to discover worlds hidden behind the most usual things. It takes me back to my childhood, when everything was new and you would be enchanted by fairytales. That’s exactly what this podcast feels like. There’s so much care and love put into these stories.
