Must listen for UXRs

I absolutely love this podcast. Always insightful without being too heavy or overwrought. Steve is a skilled interviewer…which makes sense!

SO GOOD

This podcast has been breathing life into my experience as a researcher for years now. The conversations Steve has with folks remind me that corporate folks are just people, that researchers are fun to talk with, and that we all have a varied background and approach to doing what we do.

Also love listening to this podcast when I have job interviews coming up- gets me very excited and gives me great ideas to share.
