Visit 99% Invisible for podcasts about design

By Dan Gregory

One of many intriguing finds on this unusual and addictive desig

Here's how the founders of 99percentinvisble.org describe what they do:

"99% Invisible is about all the thought that goes into the things we don’t think about — the unnoticed architecture and design that shape our world. With 80 million downloads, 99% Invisible is one of the most popular podcasts on iTunes.

"99% Invisible started as a project of KALW public radio and the American institute of Architects in San Francisco. Originally, host and creator Roman Mars produced 99% Invisible from his bedroom. Roman Mars is also a founding member of the podcast collective, Radiotopia. While Mars has since upgraded from his bedroom digs to a studio behind his house and an office shared with 99pi's wonderful staff (in beautiful downtown Oakland, California), most of the equipment and production process remains the same.We are a completely independent production. Funding comes directly from our phenomenally dedicated listeners, including our record-breaking Kickstarter campaign, and from podcast underwriters."

I was especially swept away by a podcast on photography at the Bauhaus, and by one about a famous psychological study of creativity in architects.

I bet you can't listen to just one podcast or read just one article!
