Funky sexy ,

It’s like a type museum!

If there will be some sort of a world typography museum one day, this radio must be a big part of it. Thank you guys for doing this job. I'm so filled with gratitude that it doesn’t only teach you about the type world, it gives you a new vision as a designer based all those wise people.

Typographer's Delight!

Often revelatory.
Sometimes silly and irreverent.
Usually very entertaining.

I am addicted to this podcast and have recommended it to my colleagues and students. It will give you a particular (and perhaps peculiar?) insight into type, design, and that strange creature known as the designer. Wonderful!
