More than just an honest podcast!

This podcast is great for people who are established designers or new to the design game. The team have their own experiences in their career and give out some good, HONEST advice. They occasionally have guests on the show as well, and cover some insightful and important topics. I also LOVE the chemistry between the group, I’m surprised how often I end up laughing out loud to this podcast!

Really love this podcast, but...

I absolutely loved this podcast. I was searching for something informative and entertaining to listen to while working on my art projects, so I was really happy find these guys! The hosts are great. This show is a lot like hanging out with some good art buddies, something I miss while working in my studio. I especially appreciated that they kept things “honest” and clean. But... I noticed a downward turn in humor and language in the last few episodes. I love these guys, but am really disappointed in the direction it has gone recently. I’d like to ask them to please keep things clean! I’m sure future podcast guests wouldn’t mind not using offensive language for just a few minutes, especially if you asked nicely. Some of your listeners would be soooo greatful!
