Studio 360 is a great public radio show hosted by Kurt Anderson about “what’s happening in pop culture and the arts.” Don’t let that description fool you, it’s not “Entertainment Tonight.” Instead, the show focuses on interesting stories and interviews about a variety of topics.
Every few weeks, they have a segment called “Design for the Real World” where a guest talks about the design of some product or system. Happily, I recently discovered that these segments have their own separate podcast. For example, a recent fascinating one was a photographer talking about the design of a Leica camera. Another great one was a segment on interstate highway signs.
