Announcement: We can talk about making a difference or we can make a difference. Or we can do both.

Design Matters Second Season Begins June 3rd at 3pm ET

Design Matters is a one-hour live internet radio show broadcast on the Voice America Business network every Friday afternoon from 3-4 pm ET. You can also listen to the show any time you'd like via the network's free on-demand egocasting. The show is a (hopefully) provocative intersection of branding, design and culture--live callers chime in and overall, it is a fast, funny and fascinating hour of radio.

Second Season Line-up:

Writing in Vanity Fair, Sam Tanenhaus described Postrel as "a master D.J. who sequences the latest riffs from the hard sciences, the social sciences, business, and technology, to name only a few sources," while Camille Paglia has called her "one of the smartest women in America."

Howdy Debbie.

Will there ever be an archive of your show? With the new PodCasting feature on iTunes, this would be a great opportunity for those of us who can't catch the show every Friday to take it with us and listen to it when we do have the time to do so.
