99% Invisible

Roman Mars
A collaboration between public radio and the American Institute of Architects in San Francisco, the 99% Invisible podcast seeks to expose the unseen aspects of design and architecture. Often including interviews with experts, the show opens your eyes to things you might tend to overlook or take for granted, like outdoor staircases and commemorative plaques, calling your attention to all of the thought and choices that go into the aspects of our everyday lives we don’t pay enough attention to. Pro tip: this one is a great choice to listen to on a walk.

Loved this 99% Invisible episode about license plates and the surprising legal battles that sometimes emerge around them.
The downfall of Enron is a fascinating case study in and of itself, but I have never explored it from this angle before! If you're interested in AI, communications, and ethics, I recommend this super interesting episode detailing the impact of the exposed Enron emails and how they've shaped modern tech.
I love how this podcast is able to be so expertly descriptive that they can run a design podcast and talk about really visual things in an audio format. This episode is a great example.
