Excellent show

Excellent interviews. I enjoy listening to my favorite architects get real. I have learned so much already listening to this podcast, and I discovered it a few months ago. Thank you!

A podcast for architectural elitists, or whiny millennials/gen z

I can count on my hand, the number of episodes that truly provided any value to the listener. These were mostly episodes interviewing architects or small/mid sized firms with sizable influence in their local economies. The host, Aaron, seems to have an unfounded affinity for Ivy League architectural pedigrees, and academic jargon. This podcast does nothing for making architecture attainable for the average individual, rather it continues to propagate an elitist ivory tower view of the architectural profession. While it is occasionally interesting to listen to conversations with architects that have been elevated to the top of our profession, episodes like the one with Diane and Andi from Gensler are incredibly off-putting. Giving them a platform to reiterate, their corporate “holier than thou” mantra also does nothing for our profession. But, were you really lost me was when you interviewed Andrew and Danielle from Architectural Workers United. I by no means believe that the profession is perfect, but giving these propagandists a platform to spout their misinformation and hate is disgusting.
