The IDEO Futures podcast: where entrepreneurship meets design.
We love the art and science of bringing cool stuff to life. We are designers dedicated to the notion of building to think. Our motto is always, "Don't get ready, get started!"
In that spirit, we focus on getting better with each episode we make. For the best listening experience, we recommend starting with our latest episode. Or Episode 10.
We love to hear from you. You can find us on Twitter @ideofutures

Lots of smart ideas
And it’s so helpful that Ideo is willing to share. Just wish they’d get to the discussion a bit quicker at the start of the podcast.
The guests are interesting and inspiring; Diego, Joe, and Piper are insightful; and the podcast has a laid back, welcoming feel.
Great job, IDEO!
