MT from the Bay Area ,

I wish I had known about this podcast before I started my HFE graduate program!

If you are studying human factors and ergonomics in school, or looking to transition to a UX/UI/HFE career, then this is the podcast for you. The podcast is very beginner-friendly, the host are interesting to listen to and the subject matter is relevant and engaging. The community that Nick and Blake have created is welcoming and motivating. Just the kind of space I need to make it through my grad progam.

I've listened to other UX/UI/HFE type podcasts in the past, but I didn't enjoying listening to them as much as I enjoy listening to the HF Cast poscast.

Give HF Cast a chance! I know I'm glad I did.
