Architecture Podcast Recommendations

Familiar with podcasts? How about architecture podcasts?


Podcasts, a portmanteau of iPod and Broadcast, are streaming recordings delivered in audio format. The concept of podcasts gained recognition in 2004 and saw increased popularity in 2005 when Apple incorporated podcast features into iTunes. In 2010, I came across a daily habit suggesting that "Successful people listen to podcasts more than music." Intrigued and eager to explore what podcasts were and their content, I began listening to podcasts. However, it was somewhat challenging to find Indonesian-language podcasts at that time.


The landscape has since changed, with the podcast business growing, particularly in Indonesia, experiencing a boom since 2018. This surge began when the Anchor platform launched a free hosting service for distributing podcasts across various platforms. Previously, podcast creators had to use paid hosting services to distribute their podcasts. Since then, many people have rushed to create podcasts, similar to the vlogging boom in 2012. Another reason is that creating audio content in podcast form (although video podcasts are also prevalent now) is much easier and economical in terms of equipment and effort compared to producing audio-visual content like vlogs. Unfortunately, as of now, podcasting in Indonesia is not yet supported for monetization.


The advantage of podcasts lies in their audio-based nature, allowing listeners to enjoy them while engaging in other activities such as driving or exercising, which could be unsafe while watching YouTube, for example. Individuals with high mobility are likely to prefer this medium over video content.


With thousands of podcasts available, each covering different topics and content, I would like to recommend some inspiring podcasts specifically for architecture and design. These can serve as references to accompany you in your daily activities.
