Best podcast for Architectural entrepreneurs!

I am currently a junior partner at my firm and have been dreaming of starting-up my own gig. This podcast has helped me confirm my knowledge on the little that I know about managing a firm, and has also helped shed some light on the areas that are still a little grey to me. I have been able to put a lot of the lessons in motion at my current firm, but I am really excited to put them in full effect once I have my own.

Tech issues

Good topics and guests with some fundamentals most forget about. Only issue I have is the terrible, muffled sound of the interviewee. It’s obvious these interviews are not recorded using the best technology and some are so hard to hear what they are saying, I just skip the remaining episode.

Very Informative

This podcast is very informative and practical. Favorite episode is with Carl Turner, he is now one of my design heroes! Thanks for introducing me to so many practitioners doing great work. This podcast helped inspire me to get into architecture after not being able to after college. Thanks Enoch! You are doing a great service to the architecture community! I wish you all the best!
