99% Invisible is a tiny radio show about design, architecture & the 99% invisible activity that shapes our world.
It's mostly true stories of everyday people, though not always. There's lots more to the show, but it's sort of hard to describe.
Producer Curtis Fox explores the diverse world of contemporary American poetry with readings by poets, interviews with critics, and short poetry documentaries.
Meditation, Emotional Healing, Spiritual Awakening

KEXP's newest podcast will feature exclusive in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent musicians that KEXP thinks listeners should hear along with songs from more well-known artists.
Sterling Brands, Design Matters
Who are you, and what do you do?
My name is Debbie Millman and I am President of Design at Sterling Brands, Chair of the Masters in Branding Program at the School of Visual Arts, host of the podcast Design Matters and author of a new book of illustrated essays and poems titled Self-Portrait As Your Traitor.
What podcasts do you listen to?
99% Invisible: Roman Mars is my hero. My favorite episode is the show about the making of the I Heart NY logo by Milton Glaser
This American Life: The master of all podcasts. My favorite episode is Episode 291: Reunited and it feels so good.
RadioLab: Science, technology, human experience are all made sexy by co-hosts Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich. My favorite episode is about rainbows.
Tara Brach: Audio Darma at the intersection of Buddhism and emotional healing. Start with Part One of an episode about Happiness and go from there.
The Dinner Party: Rico Gagliano and Brendan Francis Newnam co-host a fast-paced, funny and fabulous hour of sparkling conversation. One of my favorite episodes is about Miranda July’s Penny Saver
KEXP Song of the Day: What is better than a free daily indie download of rare recordings, in-studio performances and a daily dose of music that matters?
Poetry Off The Shelf: I share my producer, Curtis Fox, with this podcast and every episode is wonderful. Start with the latest featuring David Sedaris, and go backwards in time to listen to them all.
How do you listen to podcasts?
I listen to podcasts out loud while I am working on art (particularly Tara Brach), on my iPhone during my frequent airplane trips (mostly 99% Invisible, This American Life and RadioLab) and on the subway (everything and anything to muffle other passenger’s leaking, thumping headphones).
