Season 3 - Episode 157 - Present
Season 3 is all about Craig talking into a mic about topics loosely connected to design. They're raw, direct, and live episodes where Craig just says what's on his mind, with no editing and nothing cut out. This is all about design and creativity, straight from the mouth of the creative director of a design agency.

Season 2 - Episode 80 - 156
AADA is a musical journey through design and creativity. It's a trippy, midnight-style podcast where Craig talks about design, creativity, and all the bits in between, hidden underneath, and around design. Think Blue Jam crossed with Radio Lab, or 99% Invisible crossed with Terence McKenna. It's what would happen if Morcheeba did a TED talk. It's released daily, at 00:15.

Season 1 - Episode 1-79

    240 - Be Careful When Automating Your Social Media

    240 - Be Careful When Automating Your Social Media

    Batching your social media is a great tactic...but you have to be careful.

    Automating and batching your social media can be a useful way to save lots of time
    Mostly, I recommend it
    The problem comes when it’s too automated
    Has to still seem relevant
    Not repeat itself: Rise of people using Meet Edgar to repeat content
    It means you see people’s Twitter timelines and they just say the same things over and over

    239 - 7 Reasons NOT To Start a Podcast

    239 - 7 Reasons NOT To Start a Podcast

    I'm going to be negative today and tell you why you shouldn't start a podcast.

    Back in #227 I spoke about starting a podcast
    Today, this is 7 reasons NOT to start a podcast
    I’m going to be negative7 Reasons
    LOTS of people do podcasts. Rather too many do: it’s a crowded market
    People still don’t get podcasting
    If you’re not a natural speaker, it might harm you
    It isn’t the easiest way to build an audience - it takes lots of time
    It’s hard to work out the size of your audience - no real stats means no real insights
    I can’t make people take action: linking to stuff is hard
    They take a lot of time and you have to be passionate about it

    Lots of companies get content marketing wrong
    They get marketing wrong too
    They try to market their business
    And they try to get people to engage with their business
    The problem is: PEOPLE ENGAGE WITH PEOPLE
    Look at Apple: Steve Jobs, Jony Ive, Tim Cook
    Why do they put spokespeople out for a massive company?
    Because people don’t engage with brands, even ones as powerful as Apple
    I’m interested in Apple, but I don’t follow Apple on Twitter
    Stop trying to make your business into a thing people want to engage with
    Make your people the thing that people will engage with

    237 - Why Are You Blogging/Podcasting/Making Videos?

    Yes you're making a podcast or a blog. But WHY are you doing it and what do you want to achieve?

    I listened to a great episode of Cliff Ravencraft’s podcast the other day where he spoke about making a podcast
    He said a lot of people that come to him have got it the wrong way around
    They made a podcast, but didn’t do it for a reason
    There was nothing for a listener to then jump off to afterwards
    This is fine for for-fun podcasts, but what about the marketing ones?
    Why are you doing your content marketing? What are you ultimately trying to market? My personal reasons for doing a podcast
    You all know: I started my podcast in January as a challenge and “marketing experiment”
    I didn’t have anything to sell though
    I enjoy it and that’s one of the most important things
    A new goal of mine is to freely share everything I learn
    It helps me build an audience - 1000 Fans by Kevin Kelly Let’s flip the question around
    But let me turn the question to you: why are YOU doing these things?
    Or why are you NOT doing?
    A reason is important
    For years, I didn’t have a reason, so I didn’t do it
    Now I want to share, I have a reason

    The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod
    You're can only become as good as your level of self development
    If you're not self aware or capable of being a leader you can't be a leader
    If you're not capable of taking on the attitudes of successful people you can't be successful
