Sophia listens to 99% Invisible

Oct 30, 2014

Sophia’s favorite podcast is 99% Invisible, a radio show about design and architecture. She likes the show because it reveals the amount of careful thought applied to the creation of buildings and environments. Some recent episodes that she likes are:

  • Holdout - One of the stories features Edith Macefield, an 85-year-old woman, who defied big developers from purchasing her land.
  • The Sound of Sports - About sound engineers and how they design the sound of sports.
  • Feet of Engineering - The origins of high-heeled shoes and how it became gendered.

99% Invisible is part of a collective of story-driven radio shows called Radiotopia from PRX. Radiotopia is currently raising funds on Kickstarter. If you like 99% Invisible or other Radiotopia shows (like Love+Radio and Strangers), consider backing them. Help support independent radio producers create shows that are entertaining and thought-provoking.
