There are many benefits that come from listening to podcasts regularly. First of all, they are a great way to spend time while we are commuting. We can also learn a lot about any topic we are interested in. Besides, if we want something more specialized, we can stay informed and updated regarding the latest news and events from our professional field. This is why we decided to share with you some of our favorite architecture and design podcasts that we think you should be listening to right now.
We have gathered a quite diverse and rich list of architecture and design podcasts that will cover different areas of these fields. From interviews with professionals of the industry to in-depth discussions about the everyday part of architecture and construction to the wonders of designing the mundane. This list is as varied as it gets.
Design Matters with Debbie Millman
What started as an online radio show has now evolved into a fully produced podcast. Hosted by the one and only Debbie Millman, Design Matters is a show that has set the standards for all the design and architecture podcasts that came after. In this show, Debbie gets the chance to interview different designers that she admires and ask the questions she always wanted to. She usually interviews editors, curators, creative directors, illustrators, writers, and anyone else who is part of this field.
