A tiny radio show about design, architecture & the 99% invisible activity that shapes our world.
“99% Invisible…is completely wonderful and entertaining and beautifully produced…”-Ira Glass, This American Life“We think what he’s doing is inspiring. It has a kind of rhythm and musicality that you don’t normally find in radio or podcast storytelling.” -Jad Abumrad, Radiolab
New episodes released every 10-14 days, airing weekly on 91.7 KALW in San Francisco. Fridays at 7:35am and 4:44pm, Saturdays at 8:35am, and Tuesdays at 10:55pm. Also, 24/7 on Public Radio Remix. Distributed by PRX.
Produced by Roman Mars. It’s a project of KALW, the American Institute of Architects, San Francisco and the Center for Architecture and Design.
“Roman Mars lights the radio. His pieces conjure other worlds, grapple with big ideas, make sound three dimensional. They are smart and funny and original. The Kitchen Sisters would like to be Presidents of his Fan Club.”-The Kitchen Sisters, Peabody Award-winning producers for NPR
“I love the show. It’s wonderful. [It] actually reminded me of why I love radio.” -Jonathan Goldstein, CBC’s WireTap “Mars is the Ira Glass of design.”-Allison Arieff, design columnist for The New York Times
