As a small architecture office, it can be isolating. Particularly when your partner is only your wife! No offense wife. I recently found this podcast and have been binging through them and they have helped provide insight into the challenges and thoughts of other archtiects. It is a great resource worth a listen.

Incredible podcast !

I’m from Brazil, and used to do my Architecture and Urbanism bachelor degree in there, but I move to U.S. for study English and now planing on finish my degree here. And a few weeks ago I found this podcast, and is being amazing listening. Is so many good informations, and tips. Bob and Andrew are great architects ( is what I feel based on what I heard 😁 ) I’m loving learning so much with you guys. Thank you so much for having the time and the effort of making this the best podcast about architecture!
