A Tiny Radio Show About Design with Roman Mars

Source: 99percentinvisible.org

I’ve recently wrote about the 99 Percent Invisible podcast and while it is not explicitly (or even always) geographic, it is loaded with excellent materials about design and the details of the world around us that often go unnoticed, but deserve greater scrutiny. 

How did design lead to the the rise and fall of the mall?   (see the oddly fascinating DeadMalls.com for photo galleries in your local area).  How did the expansion of billiards end the horrors of the ivory trade and lead to the age of plastics?  These are some of the questions that the podcast explores.
