This is amazing and insightful!
Wideranging, interesting and intelligent!
Great selection of topics and interviewees, it's wonderful to have this kind of resource for architects, students of architecture, and anyone interested in architecture (which should be everyone...we all live in it). Thanks and I hope there are a lot more episodes to come.
What fun it is to listen to Vikram and his guests talk about things they care about!
