Helsinki Design Weekly is aired every Thursday at 12–13 from 16 January on Radio Helsinki, 89.7Mhz. The programme can be listened to even in Tampere (106.8 MHz) and Oulu (90.9 MHz), as the station has expanded its FM frequency range and, of course, online (there is a new, well-designed app) and as a podcast.
