You may be already familiar with their podcast, or perhaps you&rsquo;ve just heard about the podcast since they released their <a href="https://archinect.com/news/article/150120503/archinect-s-founder-paul-petrunia-shares-his-true-feelings-about-archinect-s-trolls" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">episode with me</a> a couple days ago.</p> <p>The Midnight Charette has been podcasting for a while now. They're quickly approaching their 100th episode. They describe their show as an explicit podcast about design, architecture and people. The format is casual, and unscripted, and tends to run on the long side, 2 hours being about average for an episode. While this is an architecture podcast, it&rsquo;s often not addressing architecture directly, rather, David and Marina discuss non-architectural issues from the perspective of a couple of architecturally-minded professionals.</p> <figure><p><a href="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/03/0334d2cb5de5e106c6ce9d30712d7eac.jpg?auto=compress%2Cformat&amp;w=1028" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/03/0334d2cb5de5e106c6ce9d30712d7eac.jpg?auto=compress%2Cformat&amp;w=514"></a></p><figcaption>Marina enjoying a cup of <a href="https://outpost.archinect.com/store/?category=Coffee" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Brutal</a> during the show</figcaption></figure><p>In today&rsquo;s conversation we learn more about the host's backgrounds, and how they came together and conceived of the podcast.

Rusty&rsquo;s private practice focuses on sustainability and community engagement with a style that bridges modernism and the history of the the American South.&nbsp;<br></p> <p>Rusty&rsquo;s day job, however, is a State Architect for the&nbsp;<a href="https://www.rd.usda.gov/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">USDA Rural Development</a> office. As a federal employee, Rusty is one of approximately 800,000 individuals currently furloughed by the Government Shutdown. On this 34th day of the historic shutdown, as he and many others remain unpaid after two pay cycles, Rusty sits down with us to share his story. We talk about how and why he entered public service, the work he typically undertakes as a state architect, and the problems that this shutdown are causing for him, his colleague and the US taxpayers in general.</p> <p>Listen to&nbsp;episode 134 of&nbsp;<a href="http://archinect.com/sessions" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Archinect Sessions</a>, &ldquo;A Conversation Rusty Long, State Architect, Furloughed by the Government Shutdown&rdquo;...</p> https://archinect.com/news/article/150097772/a-conversation-with-alex-baca-on-city-engagement A Conversation with Alex Baca on City Engagement Paul Petrunia 2018-11-26T19:14:00-05:00 >2018-11-27T14:08:58-05:00 <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/2b/2b2851997af0c3c7a9a0ff98f0bd8214.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=1200" border="0" /><p>On this episode of Archinect Sessions we're joined with <a href="https://www.citylab.com/authors/alex-baca/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Alex</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/alexbaca" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Baca</a>, a Washington DC-based journalist focused on smart cities, planning, bike advocacy and urban mobility devices.

The nonprofit has been providing public programming, exhibitions, and publications through its ever-shifting board of directors and volunteer contributors. To celebrate this 30-year milestone, the Forum has carefully selected a collection of pieces published from its origin to today, and has published these in a book under the themes of Experiments, Detours,&nbsp;Hunches, and Santa Anas.&nbsp;</p> <p><em>Today, Los Angeles is a major architectural and urban player, but for decades the city was dismissed&nbsp;suburban and centerless. In republishing three decades of material on architecture and design in Los&nbsp;Angeles, the LA Forum Reader reclaims and reconsiders the city&rsquo;s architectural and discursive&nbsp;histories. It establishes, or reestablishes, a textual context for critical experimentation and urban&nbsp;investigation.

Scott was previously the Senior Director of Media Relations at AIA National, but resigned after the <a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/149980845/scott-frank-senior-director-of-media-relations-for-the-aia-resigns-following-the-aia-s-statement-of-support-for-president-elect-trump" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Robert Ivy letter/ #NotMyAIA controversy</a>, as discussed in <a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/149979096/aiawol-dissenting-architects-and-the-notmyaia-fallout-ft-katherine-darnstadt-of-latent-design-on-archinect-sessions-89" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Episode 89</a> of Archinect Sessions. We invited Scott to the podcast to discuss his new architect-focused business and general communications strategies for architects, but couldn't resist the opportunity to delve into a behind-the-scenes viewpoint of the national fiasco. As we at Sessions continue to both criticize and actively engage with improving the National AIA's role, Scott offers the perspective of an aligned professional into how architects can direct the news media discussion to better represent ourselves to the public. Warning: This episode contains an even higher level of cuss words than a typical episode.
