Design time

Each podcast is a different designer with a different approach to different problems. The thing I love about this podcast it’s not just “wow that is a great design” the host try to peel away the layers of the design process so we can all learn.

Amazing Podcast

I listen to this podcast while working on projects or when I have downtime, it makes for good background noise or for engaging commentary. It fits a lot of roles and I'm learning new things about design every time I listen!
