99% Invisible

99 percent cover

"Design is everywhere in our lives, perhaps most importantly in the places where we've just stopped noticing. 99% Invisible is a weekly exploration of the process and power of design and architecture. From award winning producer Roman Mars. Learn more at 99percentinvisible.org. A proud member of Radiotopia, from PRX. Learn more at radiotopia.fm." – iTunes

Lindha: 99% Invisible is one of my absolute favorite podcasts. Very relevant to what I do every day for a living. Good design is 99% invisible, each episode goes below the surface and tells a story of "unnoticed architecture and design that shape our world." A story which most people are not aware off or even notice. Well researched and produced, with the narrative draws you in. Oh! Yeah ... and then there is the soothing voice of Roman Mars.

S-Town Podcast

S-Town Podcast cover

"S-Town is a new podcast from Serial and This American Life, hosted by Brian Reed, about a man named John who despises his Alabama town and decides to do something about it. He asks Brian to investigate the son of a wealthy family who's allegedly been bragging that he got away with murder. But when someone else ends up dead, the search for the truth leads to a nasty feud, a hunt for hidden treasure, and an unearthing of the mysteries of one man's life." – iTunes

Lindha: I know I am a little late to the party. After listening to Serial, as a crime noir buff I had high expectation on this show, and initially, S-town only partly delivered. Returning to the podcast, knowing that it is not about a murder in the same sense as Serial, it is an excellent show.
