Expert guide

Jaychrist is a fantastic host who knows how to ask the tough questions. He expertly guides his guests through their journeys into design in a fun and conversational way.

While it is interesting to hear origin stories, he also emphasizes the guest’s practical advice to share with listeners. As someone who is relatively new to design, these anecdotes and tips have inspired me countless times. His shows are worth a listen (and many more!)

Bianca0920 ,

Relevant and wide range of content
