This is round two for Debbie Millman, whose first interview on this show quickly became one of the most downloaded episodes of all time (listen to it here).

Graphic Design USA has named Debbie Millman (@debbiemillman) "one of the most influential designers working today." She is also the founder and host of Design Matters, the world's first and longest-running podcast about design, where she's interviewed nearly 300 design luminaries and cultural commentators including Massimo Vignelli and Milton Glaser.

Debbie's done it all. Her artwork has been exhibited around the world. She's designed everything from wrapping paper to beach towels, greeting cards to playing cards, notebooks to t-shirts, and Star Wars merchandise to global Burger King rebrands.

Debbie is the President Emeritus of AIGA (one of only five women to hold the position in the organization's one-hundred-year history), the editorial and creative director of Print magazine, and the author of six books. In 2009, Debbie co-founded (with Steven Heller) the world's first masters program in branding at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, which has received international acclaim.

This time around, Debbie answers the most popular questions submitted by you, the listeners. Topics include:

How to turn down stability for opportunity. How Debbie made the leap and continues to try new things. How to outsmart the competition in any job. The future of graphic design. Debbie's own personal creative process. The most valuable lessons Debbie has learned about designing an ideal life for herself.

The Missing Children You Don't Hear Much About  

More than 60,000 black women are missing in America. One of the reasons we don't hear much about that is the media. By some accounts, the press is four times more likely to report when a white person goes missing over someone who is black or brown. It's a problem when anyone goes missing. We'll find out who's most at risk and what's being done to find them. 1A guest host Noel King is joined by Julia Craven, reporter for the Huffington Post, Robert Lowery Jr., vice president of the Missing Children Division of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and Phylicia Henry, director of operations of Courtney's House, an organization that supports sex-trafficked youth between the ages of 12 and 21.

Video: Crimean dissidents silenced by Moscow  

Three years after the annexation of the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea, Russia has deployed all the tools at its disposal, in the police and the justice system, to silence dissenting voices. Whether it’s the Tatars (an ethnic minority opposed to the annexation), journalists who express a critical point of view, or pro-Ukrainian activists, all those who question the Russian state risk the wrath of the regime. On March 18, 2014, following military manoeuvres and a referendum disputed by the international community, President Vladimir Putin signed the decree annexing Crimea to Russia. At the time, many voices, including in Crimea, spoke up to protest the move. Among the most vocal were the Tatars, who were deported under Stalin. In response to their protests, Russia banned the Medjlis, the representative body of the Crimean Tatars, and forced several of its leaders into exile. Others are under criminal prosecution. >> Also watch our report: "Crimea's 'Russification' in full swing" And the Tatars are not the only ones: dozens of opponents are targeted by several ongoing court cases. In December 2016, the NGO Amnesty International published a report entitled "Crimea: In the Dark - The silencing of dissent". "The cases documented in this report demonstrate the ruthlessness of the Russian authorities in brooking absolutely no dissent to their rule in Crimea," said John Dalhuisen, Director of Amnesty International’s Europe and Central Asia Programme. For its part, Russia says it is merely applying the law. After the annexation, legislation was amended to punish acts of "separatism". Any public criticism of the annexation may lead to prosecution for "incitement to undermine the territorial integrity of Russia", punishable by four to five years in prison. Little by little, in Crimea, dissenting voices are forced into silence. Our reporter Elena Volochine went to meet them.

Learning from Complaints: the benefits to organisations of listening to uncomfortable truths [Audio]  

Speaker(s): Dr Alex Gillespie, Dr Tom Reader | Public services such as healthcare receive large volumes of complaints. Traditionally these have been seen as something to manage or even hide. However, from a social psychological standpoint, listening to complaints can potentially provide independent, practical, and unique insights. This lecture reports evidence using the Healthcare Complaints Analysis Tool, which is the first reliable tool for systematically analyzing and benchmarking the severity of complaints received by hospitals. It shows that complaints from patients and families highlight systemic problems in the provision of healthcare and are associated with hospital-level mortality rates. This evidence supports the idea that complaints have high validity and can be used both as an early warning system for identifying systemic institutional failures, and as a catalyst for organisational learning. Alex Gillespie is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychological and Behavioural Science at the London School of Economics and Political Science. His research focuses on communication, divergences of perspective, misunderstandings and listening. Tom Reader is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychological and Behavioural Science at the London School of Economics and Political Science. His research examines the relationship between organisational culture and safety management in high-risk organisations. Krysta Broughton-Munford is Clinical Governance Lead at Bupa Global Market Unit. Chandru Dissanayeke is Deputy Director at the Cabinet Office. Sandra Jovchelovitch is Professor of Social Psychology at LSE where she directs the MSc in Social and Cultural Psychology. Her book on “Underground Sociabilities: Identity, culture and resistance in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro” informs the LSE-UNESCO toolkit on bottom-up social development, which was launched for a global audience at HABITAT III in Quito, Ecuador. She currently directs an ESRC-funded multiple stakeholder research partnership studying resilience and porosity of city borders in Brazilian cities. A new edition of ‘Knowledge in Context: Representation, community and culture’ is coming out with Routledge Classics in 2017. The Department of Psychological and Behavioural Science (PBS) (@PsychologyLSE) is a hub for more than 50 psychological and behavioural teachers and researchers in other disciplines across the LSE as well as a cutting-edge centre of expertise in its own right. The department is committed to building a diverse group of psychological and behavioural researchers whose collective expertise ranges ‘from the field to the lab and back’, conducting and disseminating research which makes a significant contribution to tackling the social problems of the day. LSE Works is a series of public lectures, that will showcase some of the latest research by LSE's academic departments and research centres. In each session, LSE academics will present key research findings, demonstrating where appropriate the implications of their studies for public policy.

550: Ilana Levine, Host of Little Known Facts Podcast  

Maybe you knew this about me? I was a total theatre junkie in high school and college. I acted, I directed. I minored in theatre. I think that if I was more risk-taking I would have pursued acting as a career. But then I just saw LaLa Land...and saw how excruciating the audition process is in Hollywood. I'm not sure I would have lasted long.

Ilana Levine is an actress who has appeared in multiple films, plays and TV shows...and the host of a new podcast called Little Known Facts where she interviews fellow performers about their lives, careers and of course all the juicy things you can't just find online about them. Like, did you know that Laura Linney was raised by a single mom in New York and spent her days after school as a latch-key kid? And Matthew Broderick was supposed to star in a breakout role with Sally Field, but then the director of the film passed away and the project never happened.

550 - February Poster Countdown with Mitch Putnam and Rob Jones  

Mark Brickey, Mitch Putnam, and special guest Rob Jones take on the Top 10 Posters culled from every post during the month of February. Composition, illustration tricks, and behind the scenes information only Mondo Insiders can bring you fill this countdown recorded on site at the Rob Jones Mansion. Does your poster have too many earrings on it? Will color ruin your black and white linework? Do all these great artists nail the composition and concept on their first try? All of these questions are answered as these three industry experts break down all ten posters while talking about what makes each of them successful and where they fall short. With subject matter ranging from bunny orgies to severed fingers there is no stone left unturned in this month's poster countdown.

Talking Points

Split focus endorsement issues Blasting out your titles.  When everything is well done but the composition is off.  Bringing a cinema collage together.   Late addition Spider Man pop ins and a free fall of approvals that draw out a process. Precious storytelling real estate and locking in the hierarchy.  Becoming a full time separator to broaden the market of usable illustrators. Cat hospices, black pearls, and splitting up families.  Cartoons with realistic features. Picking expressions that best tell the story.  Movement through perspective in a composition.  The extra work that makes a great poster.  Compartmentalization that can deliver more information.  Servicing fans the way they want.  Are there one too many earrings on your poster? Doing research on pieces versus guessing at what's important in the narrative.  Was Phasma supposed to be the next Boba Fett? Forensic research on very specific Star Wars characters and the weird inconsistencies that were right in front of you.  Tiered fan expectations for Mike Mitchell's Star Wars series.  Painterly decisions, collectibility, and tribute imagery.  The difficulty of Harrison Fords profile and reference photos.  Continuity issues, color changes, and the back and forth with LucasArts.  The hard work that leads to a high quality in your work and rising through the ranks.  Boiling down all your ideas to a one second snapshot.  Missing the tips.  Variants that make a difference, involve a bit of effort and a dash of risk.  Effortless, prolific talent on tap.  Finding a way to say something through your work.  Supply changes as demand goes up later on in life.  Should Teagan White split her styles into two separate businesses? Navigating the waters of transitioning over to fine art from posters.  Intensity and edge in subject matter.  Pressure Printing with carved embossing that is breaking the mold in the poster world.  A hero rises from the comic book industry.  Seven digit figure, top level art careers and where the work comes from.  Working with Jess more on movie posters that sell out instantly due to talent and not property.  Rounding out Mondo's poster lineup from well known properties.  The longest, most important, and innovative careers in posters.  The old guard versus the new guard.  Caring about properties.  Forced perspective that grabs the eye and gives you vertigo.  Art print appeals to the audience.  When black and white imagery gets too much color and loses a lot of the striking contrast and details.  Rogue One critiques and second run throughs.
The Joe Walsh Program - March 21, 2017  

Two illegals raped a 14-year-old girl in Maryland, and now the state is thinking about becoming a sanctuary state. Cinco de Mayo parades are being cancelled around the country because participants are afraid they may be rounded up and deported. Neil Gorsuch is an impeccable conservative and Trump was right to nominate him. Democrats are furious and there’s nothing they can do about it. Trump was elected because government was out of control. He better do the right thing. 48 hours left, Trump to GOP: Either pass this healthcare reform bill (AHCA) or risk your seat next election. A 15-year-old was gang-raped live on Facebook as more than 30 people viewed the assault. Nobody called the police.

Wetherspoons founder Tim Martin on UK food production post-Brexit  

Wetherspoons pub chain founder Tim Martin tells Anna Hill that UK food and farming will thrive post-Brexit, even without a tariff-free deal from Europe. But he does want to see controlled immigration, which he says is vital for the economy. Mr Martin famously campaigned for Leave in the Referendum by printing anti-EU messages on half a million beer mats. Now he says new trade deals won't put UK farmers at risk, either because consumers won't buy cheaper, lower quality meat and veg, or because our government won't allow it in. This is part of a special week of programmes on Farming Today that are exploring the environmental and farming opportunities that will come with Brexit featuring a line-up of special guests. During the week Princess Anne, Germaine Greer, Tim Martin, Jay Rayner and Sir Tim Smit will each explore some of the issues close to their heart relating to how we could look after our countryside, environment and produce food. Produced by Sally Challoner.

Sexy, Comic Relief, Porn, Miss Bebb  

Campaigners involved with the progress of the Digital Economy Bill welcome the demand that commercial providers of online pornography use age verification tools to stop young people under 18 gaining access. But yesterday amendments were announced. Critics say these suggested changes will undermine the Bill's effectiveness. Vicky Shotbolt, Chief Executive of Parentzone, who work with families and the internet, and Helen Lewington from Media Watch UK discuss. Last year it was estimated that over 4,000 people slept rough on any one night across England, a rise of 16-percent on the previous year. Young adults are at particular risk. New Horizon Youth Centre in London is a day centre working with young people who are vulnerable, homeless or at risk. Comic Relief provides a grant to enable the centre to deliver the Be Safe Project which offers support to young people. Jane speaks to Thea about her experience of rough sleeping. Gwyneth Bebb was the only woman in a class of 400 men when she left Oxford University in the 1900s as the top law student of her year. As a woman she was unable to graduate or practise law, but the case that she brought against the Law Society eventually paved the way for the first woman to be called to the bar in 1922. So why do we know so little about her? Alex Giles's play "The Disappearance of Miss Bebb" will be performed at Middle Temple next month. He joins Jenni to discuss the impact of Miss Bebb, along with Lady Justice Anne Rafferty, who has served as a Lady Justice of Appeal of England and Wales since 2011. What does 'sexy' mean? Does our understanding of it change with age? And when do you feel sexy? Performer Vanessa Kisuule and Editor of The Amorist Rowan Pelling discuss the tantalising subject with Jenni. Presenter: Jenni Murray, Jane Garvey.

Why SXSW Matters: The Best Of What We Saw, 2017  

SXSW isn't a rock festival, a hip-hop festival or a global music festival — it's a big bundle of everything rolled into five spring-warm Texas days. For artists, the choice to attend can be an expensive risk, traveling from Taiwan, Mebourne, Brixton, Brazil, or Italy hoping to be seen and heard. But sometimes it pays off. We go there to find music we're unlikely to see in our own backyard, find something thrilling, then shout out our fervent support. 1. Fragile Rock: "Stay Felt (Live)," 2. Hard Proof: "Stinger," 3.
