My favorite podcast!

I'm fairly new to motion graphics, so I'm always looking for places to gain knowledge of the industry. This podcast is a perfect place to do that. Not only is Zak interviewing amazing designers, but he is also asking them great questions. I have learned so much in this podcast and look forward to new episodes in my feed!
