Podcast | The League of Moveable Type

For those brave, nerdy souls who just love talking type as much as we do.

The Weekly Typographic Podcast is our (bi) weekly newsletter + podcast combo โ€” where we collect neat, new, and interesting type & design-related links, and send 'em over for you to expand your brain. It always leads to some fun discussion โ€” and sometimes we even learn a thing or two.
