    How can UX and Research specialists fit into this new world?
    What risks are there to focussing on Product Design?
    What vegetables is Chris growing?

Finally! A podcast that breaks down the nonsense vocabularly that gets in the way of meaning in our industry. I'm also a big fan of the dry humour and Carla's accent. Enlightening and entertaining. Subcribe now, yo.
