Good UX and design interviews
But! As others have mentioned it's annoying and difficult to listen to Skype calls with bad audio quality.
Wonderful podcast with high quality content
To the previous reviewer’s comment about audio quality, it definitely has improved recently. The content on this podcast is very good and each episode I’ve listened to so far (5 as of this writing) contains many great discussions and nuggets of wisdom that I’ll be thinking about and incorporating into my own way of approaching design. Great stuff!
Great content, amazing conversations. It’s a thoughtful podcast, which is why it’s so infuriating that the audio quality is as terrible as it is. It’s almost unlistenable. Please invest in quality audio, take your own advice, and think about the experience of your listeners.
