The Spot: Sleep by design
This week on KALW's showcase for the best stories from public radio podcasts and independent radio producers...
For almost 20 years, thousands of people have relied on the syndicated advice column Dear Prudence. The column is now a weekly podcast produced in the Bay Area and hosted by the column’s current author, Mallory Ortberg. The podcast version of Dear Prudence does good job of providing clear, rational advice wrapped in very funny, and very personal conversations. In this episode, Mallory and her guest co-host, author Saladin Ahmed, try to help a listener get a better night’s sleep.
The Dear Prudence podcast is produced by Casey Miner and Audrey Dilling and distributed by Slate. Find more episodes and links to subscribe to the podcast at slate.com/prudiepod. If you have a question you’d like Mallory’s help solving, leave a message at (401) 371-DEAR.
“Unpleasant Design And Hostile Urban Architecture (Director's Cut)” from the podcast 99% Invisible, July 2016.
99% Invisible usually tells stories about how a design is envisioned and implemented, mostly for items and systems that bring us a lot of comfort and make our lives easier. In this episode, they flip the script and focus on how design can be used to intentionally inhibit behaviors, including our most natural ones, like sleep.
