As an avid podcast listener I thought I would put together a list of the best architecture podcasts that are also hosted by architects. I think it is helpful to get insight into the design and business side of architecture from someone who has been through the process personally.
So, in no particular order, here are my picks for the best architecture podcasts currently available.
Architect Mark R. LePage, AIA, is Partner in Charge of Operations at the New York-based residential architecture firm, Fivecat Studio. In 2012, Mark launched Entrepreneur Architect, an online educational resource inspiring small firm architects to build better businesses.
Mark writes a weekly blog, hosts the EntreArchitect Podcast and is growing EntreArchitect Academy, a private online community for architects seeking success in business, leadership and life.

If you lead a firm (or plan to in the future) the Business of Architecture show is for you. Every week California architect Enoch Sears interviews an architect or designer on business strategies for running a successful design practice. You'll discover topics such as how to market a firm effectively, the questions you should ask a prospect in your first meeting, and how to keep more of your hard-earned profit.
Michael Riscica is deeply passionate about helping the next generation of Architects pass the Architect Exam and be more successful in their careers.
