A fun, nerdy podcast for people who love type, news, & type news.
Every week, we get together to talk about great stuff we've found about typography during the week — articles, new fonts, tutorials, new designers, you name it.
Before we decide which ones should be hitting your inbox in The Weekly Typographic, we meet and chat about the coolest ones. It's always been a fun show-and-tell, and frankly, we just figured — maybe other might people want to join us!
So every week we say hi, share some cool links, and see what everyone thinks. Super informal, super fun.
And the same morning, you can follow along as you listen by chekcing out the links in the newsletter in your inbox.
If you're interested, we publish each week in Apple iTunes & Google Play, right here on this page, and we throw a link in the newsletter, too — subscribe!
