One of a kind

This is the only podcast that does this kind of profiles on design giants. It's wonderfully refreshing to see the profession get this kind of spotlight. My new favorite podcast

They make design fun and funny

The hosts are warm and hilarious and have a great chemistry. The guests are fun and interesting; starchitect Daniel Libeskind was a riot but the best so far has been (my internet crush) Justina Blakeney.

Unlike any other design podcast

Daniel Libeskind was hilarious! And Family has such a great dynamic -- really cool to learn about the people behind the Yeezus tour. Design plus pop culture equals yes.
