Part of my Friday routine

I love listening to Kate and Lesley on their ‘Designer’s Getting Coffee’ podcast. I can’t wait for it to hit my app on Friday. They are great at covering a lot of valuable and useful information in a short amount of time. They are both down to earth and relatable.

Fantastic design business pod

I listen to all the design business podcasts and this newer one is now topping the chart for me. K & L have a friendly but polished presentation that’s super pleasant to listen to. They have a great rapport. But most importantly they dig deep into topics that are relevant to every designer and give concrete, practical advice. Their discussions are honest and revealing and I always come away with a ton of new info. Love it!
