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 instance and, subsequently, how it shaped their lives and careers.

Much of the archive is available below, including interviews with the likes of designer Yinka Ilori, 1882 Ltd’s Emily Johnson, felt artist Lucy Sparrow, and architect Nigel Coates. If you prefer, you can also listen via Apple Podcasts or Spotify.
