Get your daily cup of Inspiration here, folks!
From the outset, the YA podcast does exactly what it says on the tin: it features interviews with key players in the Architectural blogosphere, delves into their varied backgrounds and motivations and seeks to inspire listeners to become better architects themselves. Mike's optimism and passion for the profession is evident throughout and the easy-going yet personal nature of the interviews makes for great motivational listening. The podcast has featured an awesome choice of interviewees so far, and I eagerly await future episodes. Let this podcast be among your subscriptions fellow Young and Young-At-Heart Architects; you won't regret it.
CAUTION: Subscribing to this podcast may inspire you to cycle across the continental United States, to become a car mechanic or to become an architectural super-hero.
Ep 5 on the Construction Specifications Institute is a MUST listen
Cherise Lakeside's perspective on CSI (the Construction Specifications Institute) is a must list to any person that has perceptions about what CSI is. With 30 years of construction experience, Cherise only has five years of CSI experience and her insight into CSI is eye opening and will break down misconceptions about 'the best kept secret in construction'.
