Deep, Insightful, Well-researched

Debbie Millman’s thorough research and thoughtful questions bring out the best in her guests. Her craftsmanship as a podcast is worthy of more attention.

Her interview with Michael R. Jackson and Seth Godin are so good I had to stop what I was doing and listen.

Debbie is a gem!

Please include episode descriptions!

Fascinating topic overall – I really appreciate Debbie’s approach to applying and understanding design in society and our lives. I rarely listen, however, as I would like to have a little bit of an indication about the topic before listening to an episode.
