99% Invisible

Originally a project between KALW public radio and the American Institute of Architects in San Francisco, 99% Invisible is a brainy online radio program that investigates all the design mysteries that are hidden just below the surface of the everyday world. For instance, how did inflatable men end up flopping around in front of car lots? Or where did the fortune cookie come from? Or who invented the revolving door? All of these questions (and more) are answered on 99% invisible. On this website, readers will want to scout the Episodes section, where they will find more than 200 entries dedicated to topics like the Wonders of The Urban Wilderness and The White Elephant of Tel Aviv. Notably, a handy playlist feature lets users compile a stash of items of interest, simply by selecting "Add to Queue" when browsing episodes. The site also features excellent Articles, which explicate topics ranging from Olympic Architects to The Catastrophic Collapse of the World's Tallest Tower. In addition to browsing the plentiful archives that date back to 2010, interested readers may sign up for the email newsletter to receive notifications about the latest episodes and articles.
