I listened to 11 episodes today alone
I discovered this show a couple weeks ago and fell in love. As an aspiring architect in college, this is very encouraging and helpful in practical way as well. It’s simply a few guys talking about architecture and life as an architect and it is so enjoyable.
It makes data entry and scanning documents a lot more interesting when you’ve got this in your ears!! I have also baked 2 pies to this, and listened during work commutes.
Please please bless yourself and listen to this podcast, you won’t regret it!
Eye-opening in the best ways!
You guys bring so much to the table, especially for students like myself. Some things you touch on, such as the lack of exposure to budgeting constraints in studio courses, have become talking points between students and faculty concerning our design programs. Great content, great dialog—keep it up!
Just started to listen in the past 6 months and have really enjoyed the insightful conversations. Thanks.
