Great podcast!

This podcast gave me the confidence to keep going with my career. I thought I wasn’t doing good because of the issues that I came across, but it turns out that most designers go through the same struggles. I wish you guys had time at the end of each episode to answer listener's questions. Great job guys!

Designing boredom

They used to have occasionally good content. I don’t always agree with their takes and that fine. Difference of opinion is vital and common in design however I hope their clients don’t listen and honestly outside of Nick they all seem rather egotistical which as a designer myself is a trait I’ve never understood quite frankly (maybe due to design being my second career path). Typically as of the last year I look at the subject title, listen for five minutes and 8 out of 10 times I just delete it. I’ve found more helpful instructions from online such as satori graphics (not very humble but knowledgeable), dansky and a few others.
