Podcasts seem to me as if it loudly allows us to argue, think, and understand. Well, but how’s the situation for disciplines like urbanism, design, and architecture? Can they be understood without being visual?
How does an architect who tries to explain his/her design through pages of the slide presentation express himself to an audience without visual? Or how can a city, a design be described?
99% Invisible is about all the thought that goes into the things we don’t think about.99% Invisible
No doubt 99% Invisible one of the most popular design podcasts. Hosted by Roman Mars, the podcast’s name was derived from a quote by Buckminster Fuller: “Ninety-nine percent of who you are is invisible and untouchable.” Its goal is to talk the unseen aspects of design, and architecture. For this, in my opinion, the most binding aspect of the podcast is Mars’s expression method. He tells completely riveting tales of design. He dives into extraordinary topics in every podcast.
If you don’t know Roman Mars, you should definitely listen to the TED talk speech first. I am sure you will enjoy watching the reconstruction of the podcast on stage.
