You've seen ARCHITECT in print and online, but have you heard us? You can now, loud and clear, with our new podcast, ArchitectChats. Here, our editors talk with the people who are working at the cutting edge of design, technology, and practice in architecture. We'll talk with them about what they're doing, where they're headed, and how you can learn from it.

In this episode, we chat with the American Institute of Architecture Students 2014–2015 president, Charlie Klecha, about what he learned from taking the Architect Registration Exam in a week, and how established architects and firms can support emerging practitioners before, during, and after they take the test. Spoiler: Klecha passed all seven sections in a week, after spending seven weeks studying.
