A Web Wonderland!
Lea, Emily, and their incredibly knowledgeable guests bring so much value in each and every episode! It's comprised of all the traditional things that make a web/tech show fabulous (innovation, problem-solving, etc.) coupled with authenticity and insight you won’t find anywhere else, so you're sure to be hooked from the very 1st listen! Thanks for putting out such a wonderful show ladies - keep up the great work!
A much-needed step outside the usual suspects.
There are a million and one podcasts in the areas of design, web design, UX, product design and development, etc…and they all pretty much cover the same ground: best practices, processes, tactical methods, etc…constrained within very defined boundaries in the category of “doing the work.” I think most people have been there, done that, bought the t-shirt.
I truly believe there is a need to step waaaaaay outside those boundaries in order for an article, a course or a podcast, to be valuable and useful to people.
Lea and Emily do an excellent job of covering the human part of Design, UX and product development work, the hearts and souls hard at work, making the Web more human.
THIS is the stuff that people need most. This is the HARD part of doing this work, this is where people struggle most, and this is an area where there’s high urgency around finding solutions. Well worth your time.
Thoughtful and thought-provoking!
Even as a non-tech person, I find the insights of CTRL+CLICK CAST relevant to my own life and writing. Emily and Lea have created something authentic, heartfelt, and truly helpful. Plus they're just fun to listen to! If you are anything like me, you will feel happier and smarter for having tuned in.
