You can always count on Method to dig in about a subject they care deeply about and leave you with plenty of thought nuggets to share around.
Hearing people tell their own stories and intertwining it with their thought process for their roles/projects is awesomely intriguing!
Still consider myself a new UX Designer; hearing how people got started and work past the pervasive feeling of “faking it until you make it” or “imposter syndrome” is really inspiring.
Am I the first reviewer?
I just started in a contract design role at Google (Mountain View campus). I really love how this podcast helps me get a sense of the broader design community and culture at Google. It gets me excited and inspired for my work!
