99PI is one of my favorite shows for a few reasons. First, the episodes are timeless, much like the elements of design they celebrate. Second, the show is produced in a way that creates an economic yet thorough brand of storytelling without the edits being too in your face (or ears) like some other public radio-style shows. Finally, I almost always learn something when I listen to this show.
Roman Mars is a very gifted creator and with over 300 episodes as of this writing, his creation is a slam dunk for my podcast hall of fame. Any listener can jump in with the current episode and see exactly what makes this show one of the greats.
