Roman Mars on Bullseye

Roman Mars joins Jesse Thorn on Bullseye this week to talk about life before podcasting, and what decades in radio has taught him. Roman has worked in podcasts and radio for decades at this point, but his career didn’t start out in audio. He was originally getting a Ph.D. in genetics, pipetting stuff into tubes, recording data and the like.

Roman and Jesse also spoke about how the pandemic has affected the design of cities, and which of those changes might be permanent.

    I have delivered food through the pandemic and I have loved noticing the little things restaurants have done to facilitate picking up orders. My favorite thing, though, is how quickly restroom trash cans were moved closer to the doors. Restrooms that only had air dryers before would have new paper towel holders. Where there was only an installed trash can away from the door, a new mobile one would be added closer to it. Everyone seemed to consider all at once that even more people than usual would be using paper towels to open doors.
