I could listen to Roman Mars’ baritone voice read an instruction manual, but better yet @99percentinvisible talks about how design works and how it touches everything in modern life. I now have love of design thanks to this podcast.

This is the only podcast I have ever donated money to. Roman and team have been consistently coming up with fascinating topics. A personal favorite is the episode about Salt Lake City. Make this a part of your life people!!

Really interesting subjects that I would not consider interesting beforehand. Roman’s voice is just made for radio. Thank you for providing so many eye-opening episodes!

Would love to see up to half of the stories about women since their labor is the most invisible.

Everything you didn’t know you needed to hear just to get through another day. One of the most soothing podcasts I know, and consistently good. Like listening to a friend. In the end this podcast, about cities and urban planning and architecture and design, is only ever about people and what...Read full review »

This is my favorite podcast. I am in the process of listening to everyone and they are all great. It has an eclectic mix of topics that keep you interested. This podcast makes me look forward to my hour long commute to and from work.

99pi uses engaging narrative, original music, and Roman Mars’ deep, buttery voice to share fascinating design stories from all over the world. I’ve listened to every episode, and new ones go straight to the top of my list when they come out. Every episode sounds so deliberately crafted, and...Read full review »

Go back and listen to early episodes. They were informational and interesting. Every new episode now feels like it has an agenda. I’ve been a listener for 5 years and I’m considering turning off auto download or deleting all together. You’re catering to a small percentage of the population....Read full review »

Well researched and always food for thought. Relearning how to think and reason is the show’s forte.

Well-researched, well-produced, and well-put together. It’s just an intriguing podcast that’s a fun listen.

Insightful and intelligent stories told in intriguing ways.

Roman Mars singing California Über Alles is definitely a highlight for me. incredible episodes like “he’s still neutral” and “Great bitter lake association” are a great jump off point for anyone looking to start with recent stuff, then head back to “Kowloon walled city” and “life and death in...Read full review »

This show started me on my podcast listening journey many years ago and it’s still my absolute favorite of all time.
Woord hond via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/13/19
I listen to a lot of podcasts, but there’s something about hearing “This is 99% Invisible. I’m Roman Mars” that makes me happier than just about anything else. And typically, the stories that come after the intro are also great.
Offscripting via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/12/19
I’ve been a longtime listener of 99% invisible and can’t recommend this podcast enough. Not only is if fantastic reporting/storytelling, but it is a prime example of what amazing editing can do to elevate the listeners experience. The editing is so beautifully done, that it has genuinely ruined...Read full review »

Thank you for bringing a little bit of New Mexico’s Tradition into the spotlight. We are a culture that through our Chile we will unite our state.

This is a really interesting podcast- highly recommend!

This has been one of my favorites for a long time. Your audio tour of the Guggenheim inspired me to leave a review. Here’s to more audio tours 🍻
Joelene06 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/08/19
Even though I’m not really interested in architecture, this podcast gets me hooked every episode. They always have a well produced story to tell. Five stars!
MissRut via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 11/02/19
I checked out after the multi-episodic shows on clothing. I felt the quality dipped a bit and was moving away from the original intent of this show. My son recently informed me that it’s back on track! Once again, Roman, provides an amazing and quality program that rests in the pantheon of...Read full review »

Accepting money from the qatar foundation is shameful. Do better. Education city is the qatari royal family funnelling money to greedy schools in exchange for legitimacy
ffs223 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/31/19
I love HB! Except for the days when they post an episode that I’ve heard before, and the occasional boring episode, I 10/10 reccomend HB!
Creepy Monkey Boy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/31/19
I just finished all the episodes (367 episodes at the time of writing this) and figured it’s time to write a review. 99% Invisible is by far my favorite podcast ever! I love design and architecture and very much appreciate their attention to detail and their amazing stories. Definitely check it out!

Really enjoyed the episode “Life and Death in Singapore”! As a Singaporean, I actually had no idea about how Singapore had to demolish that many graves for public housing. A very riveting listen!

Thanks to everyone who’s working on this podcast! I have been listening for years now and I have never been disappointed. It’s so great to discover something new every time about everyday things. thank you!

Don’t bother with the old episodes. 12 minute episode. 6 minute ads. Quite irritating. Was a super fan until discovering this
aeiou77777 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/24/19
The topics that are covered are always intriguing. Roman has the best voice ever.
ALCavazos via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/22/19

I was introduced to this podcast by a friend and I’m really glad I was. I listen to it on the way to work and love to share the stories with the other teachers and students. The subject of each podcast is well thought out and informative without being too full on, keep up the great work.
GingerPatch via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/14/19
This used to be my favorite podcast hands down but now it is mostly filler on uninteresting topics and poorly conducted interviews.
thetruthmayhurt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/14/19
Early series offer bite sized podcasts packed full of interesting information. A bit like tiny episodes of QI but on steroids.

I really appreciate the warm and soft voive of Roman Mars! And I am so often surprized by the stories!! Continue please! Andreas from Germany

“The Kirkbride plan” was a fantastic episode. The history of the design of mental health facility’s and the sub story, looking at alternative opportunities like the Gould farm, are what I wrote my Masters of Architecture’s thesis on. Creating place for community mental health support should be a...Read full review »
