Material Matters with Grant Gibson is a podcast in which the eponymous host talks to designers, makers, artists, architects and manufacturers about their relationship to a particular material or technique with which they’re intrinsically linked.

Episodes often straddle the divide between professional and personal, with listeners finding out how guests came to be involved with their material in the first place and, subsequently, how it shaped their lives and careers.

The show was launched in 2019 to critical acclaim and quickly established a global reputation. In September 2022, parent company Delizia Media launches the Material Matters exhibition at the Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf.

The complete podcast archive is available below, including interviews with the likes of Edmund de Waal, Yinka Ilori, MoMA’s Paola Antonelli, Polly Morgan and Tom Dixon. If you prefer, you can also listen via Apple Podcasts or Spotify.
