#10. Why did I start Product Stories?
A question that I constantly keep getting is why did I start Product Stories or why do I host a podcast. Tbh when I started, I was not clear about why I wanted to do it. Over time, it became clear about what the podcast is about and who is its audience. In the latest episode, I talk a bit about my design journey and how Product Stories podcast took shape.
