    Media In the Age of the Coronavirus

    Media In the Age of the Coronavirus

    In the first episode since the Coronavirus outbreak, we ask a lot of question about how this is effecting various media related industries.

    How is it effecting the video industry? Is this an opportunity to create media in more creative ways using virtualized environments like AR and VR? 

    What about meetings? Will more and more meetings be done remotely using apps like Zoom? What about conferences? Are there reasons to even have face-to-face meetings and conferences?

    And, as usual, Cheenu pimps the potential of chatbots, which leads us to the thought, “Is Siri’s voice sexy?”.

    Things do get a little political in talking about the Coronavirus situation so...beware!

    The UX of Magic and Beer

    Joining us on the podcast is magician James Munton. We talk at length about what it takes to create great experiences with magic and how that world parallels with UX design practices. Later, we talk about his podcast, AppleSauced, a podcast about technology, life, and beer. We chat a bit about how people’s experience with beer have changed, especially with the resurgence of local microbrews. And, being that James is from England, we talk about the difference between the US and UK pub scene.

UX Design Experts + Startup Founders

I love the ProjectUX podcast format because is creates a context where User Experience Designers can have a meaningful exchange with a startup founder or product manager. Listening to these episodes has helped me gain design perspective and improve my approach when creating new startups from scratch. Also props to Rob and Teresa and the team for all the work they do behind the scenes to build the community of UX designers locally and globally.

Much needed in the UX world

We need more quality UX podcasts out there and this was super informative. I love the casual nature of the show and the personalities really mesh well.
