New website!
Our new website has launched! We’ve been working hard on getting the presentation of each episode to be more connected with the overall design of the site. Included in this update is a more straightforward blog format as well as fully integrated video pages. We have also updated the copy and format of the about and participate pages and hope to add features as time goes on.

If you have any suggestions or ideas, feel free to send us an email at info [at] typesetting [dot] tv.

More episodes coming
We have more episodes coming as well! Two in particular: Warsaw, Poland and Budapest, Hungary. Stay updated on twitter to see when these videos launch!

More good stuff is on the way! Stay tuned…
