What’s it really like to work in architecture? The hosts of Archispeak know, and they’re here to share real-life experiences. Since 2012 Evan Troxel and Cormac Phalen have been podcasting their brand of real talk on everything from design, tools, and work/life balance to generational differences, mentoring, job hunting and more. Probing questions, revelatory interviews, and unique insights have grown their audience and become a bi-monthly ritual for students and seasoned professionals alike.

#191 – Looking Beyond Property Lines
We discuss the October architectural conference flurry—including one that Evan is speaking at—and recap architect Jeanne Gang's keynote presentation at the 2020 Architectural Record Innovation Conference.
#190 – Understanding The Grimaces
We discuss the new world of communication and physical barriers that many people are adapting to, and many who are not.

We discuss taking ideas from other industries — like auto manufacturing — and applying them to architecture.
#187 – V.E. is Neither
We discuss ways to deal with last-minute changes on projects, which is something that never really happens.

We discuss a recent Twitter thread about structural engineering career angst and parallel issues we have observed in the architectural profession.
