Roman Mars wants to help you see the invisible

'99% Invisible' host Roman Mars on the fascinating, often hidden parts of our designed world.

When it comes to the fascinating, often hidden parts of our designed world, Roman Mars is practically a private eye. His smash hit show 99% Invisible is a deep examination of the many things we take granted, from toothbrushes to steering wheels

Mars joins Shad to discuss how the world changes when seen through curious eyes, the challenges of telling design stories on the radio, and why it's worth being the kind of person who read plaques.
