Episode summary: Roman Mars joins Jesse Thorne on Bullseye this week to talk about life before podcasting, and what decades in radio has taught him.

Roman and Jesse also spoke about how the pandemic has affected the design of cities, and which of those changes might be permanent. Get The 99% Invisible City today
Excellent listen, not least because my own “career”, as I laughingly call it, followed a trajectory uncannily similar to Roman’s, at least at the outset. Lately, not so much.
