The Perfect Podcast

Debbie Millman ties creativity, business, culture, and deep introspection into every interview. The people she curates are always amazing, but it's truly her voice and commitment to exploring the creative condition through a lens that's always kind, interesting, informative, and entertaining that makes the podcast special. 10/10

I wish I had this podcast when I was growing up

I am a visual artist and every time I hear one of these podcasts, I get connected to a period on my life, past and present. Having an art career was a bit hard for me and in these shows you can hear so many answers to your doubts and concerns . I wish I had this resource when I was started my career, highly recommended

Great for technologists!

I use this podcast to balance the many tech podcasts I listen to regularly. I feel Debbie does a great job interviewing and bringing topics I would otherwise have no clue about. The design of every day things really helps to provide perspective in my career, as a father, a husband, and a human being. 10/10 recommend!
