Jeanne’s Podcast Pick of the Week

Jeanne’s Podcast Pick is a weekly First Person Arts blog post that lets Jeanne, the Marketing Intern, share with you a recent story that has sparked her interest from the World Wide Interwebs. Please feel free to comment if you are moved to do so!

The stand up comic Mitch Hedberg had an amazing ability to take the average and the typical and make it funny. He simply looked at the world through an unfiltered lens and captivated audiences with his presentation of seemingly obvious observations.

It is all too easy to become overly familiar with the sights and sounds we encounter day in and day out and to take their presence for granted. Familiarity and repetition can turn the intriguing into the mundane and may even prevent us from remembering to ask “why?”

99% Invisible is a podcast that challenges us to refresh the way we look at the world. Producer Roman Mars examines the tiny design elements of our man made environment and reveals that even the barely noticeable has a story to tell.

People like Hegberg and Mars can re-stimulate curiosity and intrigue and that is why I’d like to share this episode of 99% Invisible as my pick for the week!
