It expanded its scope to feature the most interesting figures in typography, lettering and design talk about their work and their passion in all of its aspects, from an artistic as well as a technical viewpoint. And now David Sudweeks, the current type director at FontShop International San Francisco, has taken up the mantle, reviving the podcast series with a first new episode.
