Earlier this year, I discovered the 99% Invisible podcast thanks to a recommendation made by my Stitcher app. I’ve been hooked ever since!
Our guest, Roman Mars, is the producer and host of this great podcast! I was delighted when he accepted my invitation to be on the “other side” of the microphone.
Enjoy the conversation!
