On the Red Couch with 99% Invisible’s Roman Mars
Inside Flipboard / October 9, 2012
Hosted by radio producer Roman Mars, 99% Invisible is an award-winning podcast about design, architecture and the largely invisible activity that shapes our world. Its third season set a Kickstarter record for highest-funded journalism project, and Flipboard is proud to be featuring it now as part of our new program to support publishing efforts via Kickstarter.
We went out to Mars’s home/studio in Northern California to meet him for the first time and find out how he comes up with episodes like â€œThe Accidental Music of Imperfect Escalators,â€ what inspires him, and the design invention that has most changed his life. (Hint: you might be holding one right now.) Mars was even kind enough to record the interview for us.
