A Podcast with Audrey Chen, Senior Information Architect at Comedy Central
Show length: 25 minutes

Architects make buildings for people. Information architects make information spaces for people. So how do you build doors, windows, and porches into information spaces? And how do you make it easy for people to find what they want in over 10,000 episodes of a daily TV show?

To find out, I had tea with Audrey Chen, Senior Information Architect at Comedy Central who recently created a searchable online archive of 10 years of “The Daily Show“. From 24 hour crews who watched and tagged every single episode, to the challenge of “future-proofing” information architecture systems so that they can grow and change over time, Audrey shared a glimpse into what it takes to organize and manage the massive influx of data in our world.
