Got time for our editor-at-large's new podcast?
Spencer Bailey has a great new interview series, focusing on people who have a distinct perspective on time
There are so many great podcasts out there, it might seem hard to find the time to fit a new one in, but Spencer Bailey, Phaidon’s editor-at-large for architecture and design thinks he’s hit on a new winning formula, that tries to shift our temporal view a little bit.
It’s called Time Sensitive and, as Bailey and Andrew Zuckerman the co-founder of his new media company The Slowdown put it: “the audio series features leading minds on time, exploring the profound ways that time shapes who we are and where we're going."
The podcast features curious and courageous people in business, the arts and beyond who have a distinct perspective on time; these include the actor Peter Sarsgaard, A-list celebrity stylist Kate Young, Danish architect Bjarke Ingels, and the designer and Phaidon author Stefan Sagmeister.
In keeping with its name, Bailey and Zuckerman go deep with their guests; each episode is an hour long. If you can’t sit through a whole sixty minutes, don’t worry; they’ve also divided up the recordings into shorter chunks on their website.
Art director Omar Sosa, the publisher and co-founder of Apartamento magazine, worked on the design of both the slowdown.tv and timesensitive.fm sites. The Slowdown’s logo and identity system was created by Susan Sellers of the firm 2x4. The drummer Billy Martin, of the band Medeski, Martin & Wood, composed the podcast’s theme song.
