This is Foundation for designers and creatives
If you're a fan of the style that Kevin Rose host's Foundation, this is in that fashion. Chuck Anderson takes a personal approach to his interviews going beyond the normal ho-hum questions normally asked in interviews of designers and creatives. All I could ask for in the future is a video edition and more 'live' in studio interviews. Please keep going Chuck!
