Thought Provoking, easy listening

Thought provoking, yet easy to listen to. A lot more interesting than some of the other, more vanilla conversations around design. I’d recommend starting with the Jack Roberts episode.

This has been really sparking great discussions and conversations amongst my friends in design!

There are plenty of design podcasts out there that talk about tools and follow trends, but this podcast explores mindsets and our very identity as designers, as we continue to evolve and create in a time of disruption.
