I watched the talk by Roman Mars (of 99% Invisible) on TED, about flag design. It was utterly fascinating and their other talks are equally so - http://www.ted.com/talks/roman_m... -

@d4nyll Thanks, Daniel! Roman Mars is awesome - I saw him live @ Podcast Movement in Aug in Texas and the amount of research & time which goes into making one 20min episode is huge! I don't remember the exact number but it was in the range of 6-7 weeks/episode. Which other podcasts do you listen to on a regular basis?

@khararohan @d4nyll I'm not a real podcast person. I play them in the background sometimes instead of music (often catching gems like 99% Invisible). Right now I create a playlist on NPR and listen to those.

@d4nyll Gotcha! In case you feel like listening to certain categories/topics but don't know which one to pick from the ocean of 250K+ podcasts out there, let me know & I would love to suggest some. The podcast discovery problem is a real pain (although not specific to your case) & so would like to help you solve that, whenever the need arises. thanks for reverting!

You see them on street corners, at gas stations, at shopping malls. You see them at blowout sales and grand openings of all kinds. Their wacky faces hover over us, and then fall down to meet us, and then rise up again. Their bodies flop. They flail. They are men. Men made of tubes. Tubes full of air.
