“There are not many forums where architecture is discussed openly, frankly and critically, and god knows we could use more of these.“
- Dong-Ping Wong
"There are not many forums where the profession of architecture is discussed openly, frankly and critically, and god knows we could use more of these. It was a pleasure being a guest, and just really fun. Thanks guys for giving us idiots a place to vent and air some things out. Hopefully it catalyzes some changes in how we work, and at the very least let's other architects know that there are others trying to figure out the same things they are going through."
- Dong-Ping Wong, Founding Partner of FOOD, Designer of +POOL
“Their knowledge and views on the profession lead to a conversation that got intense”
“It was a great experience to meet The Midnight Charette. It was my first experience participating on a Podcast, and I'm happy that it was with them as i was surprised by the professional, yet close and personal format. Their knowledge and views on the profession lead to a conversation that got intense as the time passed by, which really kept my head spinning during the whole interview.”
-David Basulto, CEO, Co-Founder & Editor-In-Chief of Archdaily
“This is truly architecture from the inside out."
- Michael Sorkin
"Until I listened to Midnight Charette, I’d never listened to a podcast. Now I’m hooked. This is truly architecture from the inside out."
- Michael Sorkin, Founder of Michael Sorkin Studio & Terreform, Director of the Masters of Urban Design Program at CCNY
“Marina and David connect some of the most important questions in architecture today.”
- Karen Kubey
"I tried listening to just 10 minutes of an episode and was quickly drawn into the whole thing! I love how Marina and David connects some of the most important questions in architecture today with funny personal stories and surprising insights from their guests. Highly recommend!"
- Karen Kubey, Principal of Karen Kubey Visiting Associate Professor, Pratt Institute
“Its format is a welcome antidote to the current preoccupation with social media posts and sound bites. “
- David Briggs
"This podcast captures the intimacy of a relaxed, long-form conversation. By eschewing the typical Q & A format, Marina and David prefer exploring a wide range of design topics with themselves or their guests, asking refreshing questions, tackling controversial subjects, and giving guests the time to fully articulate their views. Its format is a welcome antidote to the current preoccupation with social media posts and sound bites. Grab a drink and out on the headphones - you won't be disappointed."
- David Briggs, Co-Founder of Gowanus By Design and Founding Partner of Loci Architecture
“Comfortable, candid, and understatedly modern as morning coffee in your pajamas.”
- Nicky Chang
"The podcaster+designer duo offers a third place for the design obsessed other than home and the studio. what could appear to be intimidating at first, the 2 hours of conversation )often seemed under the influence of French wine or some sort of soft drug) flew by so fast that you end up craving for more. Comfortable, candid, and understatedly modern as morning coffee in your pajamas. Subscribe!"

One of my favourite Podcasts to listen to ★★★★★
by J. Brookes - Sep 01, 2019
Certainly one of my favourite Podcasts to listen to, Midnight Charette provides an hour and half discourse each week with a variety of subjects, predominantly within the architectural profession. The interviews are filled to the brim with knowledge, experience and opinions of fascinating people within the industry. Not one minute is wasted as they delve into the subject matter and we get to know the guest. Meanwhile the weekly talks on general matters have an ability cover heavier social/design considerations with lighter subjects as an intermission. The result is an episode that makes you think but without being worn down. This is further supported by the style of the presenters, their discourse made approachable and natural while introducing humour; rather than creating a formalised environment that can feel sterile or unrelatable. The Podcast comes across as being unedited and therefore more genuine, allowing you to get to know David and Marina. I would certainly recommend this Podcast, both for architectural professionals and for those interested in the field.

I just finished listened to your show #120. It is refreshing to hear interviews with younger professionals in the industry. More interviews like this and hearing about how the next generation of designers and architects tackle today’s problems and the issues in our industry would be great to hear. Keep up the great work.

by Cass Gilbert - Apr 9, 2019
This is a really fun podcast. Sometimes rambling but always on point these two and their guests really know how to inspire delight in this listener. Even their forays into movie land… are crazy fun and fascinating. I mean who doesn’t want to speculate on the foundation of your cult fave??? Where’s the ultimate crossover of Bladerunner v. Playtime? I would pay for that…
Intellectual conversation, interesting topics, great people ★★★★★
by Verayuca - Apr 5, 2019
Highly recommend David and Marina’s show for any designer! Every episode is like you’re hanging out with a few (often there are guests) cool friends with whom you can discuss any topic honestly and in depth. It’s enlightening and entertaining at the same time. Thank you for this podcast!

Great Podcast with good rhythm between hosts. Ranges from serious to not so serious. Making my way through old episodes now.
like wine and coffee ★★★★★

The podcaster+designer duo offer a third place for the design-obsessed other than our home and the studio. What could appear to be intimidating at first, the 2-hours conversation (often seemed under the influence of French wine or some sort of soft drug) flew by so fast that you end up craving for more. Comfortable, candid and understatedly modern like morning coffee in your pajamas. Subscribe!

Pretty good ★★★☆☆
by Sumcallmesatan - Feb 21, 2018
Love the digressions, love the great topics, fantastic stories from both hosts, love hearing about their time in architecture school when it comes up. Often the male host takes up a lot of the conversation. Makes the podcast lull when it feels like you’re being lectured. Would be cool to see this balance out. I would love to see these hosts talk to Beast Coast podcast folks in a crossover episode about anything.
Funny, insightful and entertaining! ★★★★★

Loved this couple - they feed off of each other in a natural way that’s fun to listen to.
by mbgxm - Jun 23, 2018
An obvious choice for all design lovers. Bruce and Emma share their funny and sometimes traumatic accounts of working in architecture. Guests with designers in other fields keeps the perspective fresh.
Awesome Podcast! ★★★★★
