Student

Absolutely brilliant podcast. I found all the content down to earth, applicable to my situation and insightful.

Wonderfully helpful, informative and fun

It’s hard to find content specifically targeted for young designers transitioning from tertiary education to the big wide world. As a student with a looming conclusion to my studies I really appreciate the niche that Michael and Connah are filling with this podcast, definitely leaves me more prepared for what comes next. Not to mention an otherwise very entertaining listen. Would recommend to a friend, or three.
