This month, another new LEGO podcast was launched. Happy Listening!

  • Brick by Brick (22:06)
    Matthew Shifrin is blind, and he loves building LEGO. In this absolutely touching story, you will learn how a family friend Lilya made it possible to build real LEGO sets, and the relationship with The LEGO Group that followed. (This is the best LEGO-related podcast story that I’ve heard in a long time!)
    Blind Guy Travels
  • Nathan Sawaya – Brick Artist (38:44)
    Another excellent episode interviews the talented LEGO Artist known for his “Art of the Brick” exhibitions.

  • #23: LEGO Loco: The LEGO Group’s take on SimCity (35:07)
    The Bits n’ Bricks podcast is back with their second season. The episode I’ve enjoyed most so far covers LEGO Loco, a PC game that combines elements of classic PC game that I loved as a child and LEGO Trains. It’s a great look back to the early days of PC gaming.

  • #442: Tanz Tanz Revolution (48:14)
    As a long-time electronic music fan, I was eager to learn how the fall of the Berlin wall, a transatlantic connection to the burgeoning Detroit house scene, and a lot of abandoned buildings was the perfect recipe for the explosive growth of Techno music.
