Podcasts to work with

Podcasts are seeing an amazing resurgence in the last few years. I’ve been using them since I started working in 2015 as an alternative to music when working. As an architect, I’m often confronted with doing long stretches of work that affords me the opportunity to have something playing in the background without distracting me. I’ve found podcasts to be an excellent way to keep me going through the day, and to learn something new along the way.

Here is a list of some interesting podcasts that I enjoy whilst working:

My podcast app of choice is Overcast for iOS; but there are plenty of other good apps, including the stock Podcasts app on most phones, that works just as well.

Emerging from hibernation

It’s been well over a year since my last post.

But slowly I am re-emerging from this writing hibernation and eager to get back behind the keyboard, behind my trusty Parker Jotter, and continue my rumination on the world, the built environment, technology, and, well, life in general.

A lot has happened since my last post. I’ve completed my Masters in Architecture and am getting to grips with the ‘real world’. And I’ve come to realise that writing is a key tool in helping me navigate this new terrain.

I am thinking of what Life in Pixels means to me now, at this point in my life and career. So there might be some changes… but I feel like this blog, being a personal repository of my writing and ideas, should remain exactly that.

Stay tuned.

Hello (again)


I’ve changed Pixelated Thinking’s web address.

My new blog address is now www.rahuldowlath.net

Why the change? Well, I kind of messed up my domain name transfer (it’s very complicated and boring and I won’t go into the details here). Anyway, I’ve decided to relinquish the .com address until it becomes available again with the registrar (which I hope will happen within the next year). But for now, and probably for a long time to come, I will be using www.rahuldowlath.net as the main access point to my blog, where I publish my thoughts on everything from science and technology to books, television and movies.

If you subscribe to this blog via email, you don’t need to do anything.

Thank you for supporting my blog and my writing. I have some fun posts lined up for you. You can follow me on Twitter to find out when the latest post is published: www.twitter.com/RahulDowlath.
