An informative podcast

This is a fun and interesting podcast that talks about many things that are important to architects. Some of the information isn’t just for architects and many could learn from this podcast even if architecture isn’t something you’re interested in. They also have some fun which makes it interesting.

Once in a while they go down a hypothetical rabbit hole that takes too long and eats into the time they could have talked about the topic at hand.

I hope they keep up with the podcast and continue the interesting podcast going.

Enjoyable Podcast

I’m a young, aspiring architect and I find this podcast very enjoyable to learn more about the ins and outs of architecture, design, and a little bit of life.

Great for architecture watchers

I’m not an architect but I love architecture and also love smart, snarky people. This podcast has it all. One unexpected bonus: Lots of great ideas for architectural landmarks I have added to my to-see list when I travel.
