Discovered 99% invisible by accident, since then I listen everyday. Love the variety of topics and sometimes obscure items. Thx Roman!
I love every episode of it.
Fascinating, entertaining and educational
The topics stay surprising and interesting, the touch of humour lightens up even the least joyful episodes, the production is exquisite, and Roman Mars has the best podcast voice. I’m hooked. Late to the party which gives me the great pleasure of listening back all the way till 2014 😉
