Excellent

Finally found someone who can show me the difference between bad and good design in just a minute or two.

Great!

I am a middle aged man in a career transition and need to learn as much as I can in as fast as I can about graphic design. These podcast are a perfect compliment to other material that I'm learning. Well done!
