Kate and Laura drink and fight about what is wrong with user experience design.

    Remote Design

    Remote Design

    In this week's episode, Kate and Laura yell about how to pretend you're still getting work done while you're actually searching online for toilet paper during a pandemic. Also, some tips about actually getting some design done from home, which is a lot like getting design done at work, but it's easier to panic unobtrusively. 

    Drink Pairing: Whatever you still have left in the bunker (But not the Purell. That will kill you. Seriously. Stop drinking it. Kate.)

    Technical Literacy

    Technical Literacy

    In this episode, Kate and Laura insist that, while designers don't need to know how to code, they do need to learn every single other aspect of technology. So, you know. Good luck with that. Kate actually shares a very useful resource: https://illustrated.dev. Check it out.

    Story Telling for Designers

    Story Telling for Designers

    In this episode, Kate and Laura tell long winded stories about telling stories, bringing the drunken blathering to a whole new level. And no, it's nothing like the previous podcast Story Telling for Entrepreneurs which is totally different despite having almost exactly the same name and being done by Laura and Kate who only have three stories to tell between them? Why would you even think that? 

    Drink Pairing: Hard Cider

    The ROI of Design

    The ROI of Design

    In the interests of clarity, this episode should be called "The ROI of shouting about design and also contradicting each other" but that wasn't as catchy. Kate and Laura shout about whether the value of design can or should be measured. TL;DR; Often and It Depends.

    Problems with Agile UX

    Problems with Agile UX

    In this episode, Kate and Laura yell even more than usual about how hard it is to design things in environments that say they're agile (but probably aren't). 

    Drink pairing: Shots! Preferably flu shots, followed by the shot of your choice.

Snark, swearing, snifters & solid UX advice

If you're new to UX you'll learn a lot. If you've been around a few years you'll giggle at the snark and maybe find some new angles on how you can communicate and negotiate around some of the problems we all hit. Recommended listen.
