    "What do you think about when you think about David Byrne?" asks Debbie Millman, introducing the guest on the latest episode of her podcast, Design Matters. "The Talking Heads, no doubt, and some of the most joyful pop music ever, but there’s so much more to the man. Over the years, he has collaborated with artists in dance, theater, film and television, which has resulted in him winning an Oscar, many Grammy awards, and an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Before the pandemic hit, he had a Broadway show called American Utopia, which has been turned into a film directed by Spike Lee, and a book by the same name illustrated by the great Maira Kalman. He joins me today to talk about his extraordinary life, making so many extraordinary things." You can hear their conversation here.
