About North v South

North v South is an occasional podcast presented by Rob Turpin and Jon Elliman.

The podcast is an extension of the chats we used to have when working at a small design studio while everybody else was plugged into headphones and hidden behind huge screens.

We meander through all sorts of eclectic subjects: from science to music, from film to food. Some of which is related to design, some of which is not.
