Inspirational, honest, and well done.

Brandon is so honest in this podcast. His insights on design and it's practice has helped me in so many areas. I find this podcast so helpful because he goes into subjects that are so relatable and I honestly didn't know if big designers went through. This is a must listen if you are a creative no matter what kind.

Twenty One Pilots

This is a really neat and different podcast. I just got an amazing look into the creative process behind Twenty One Pilots. Specifically to the episode I listened to - it's awesome to listen to this in 2017 at the end of the cycle and to see how all their ideas and dreams came to life! Overall as a podcast it was so interesting to hear about the work that goes on behind the scenes. Thanks for taking the time to share! P.S. Good choice choosing Brad for photography - he's amazing! P.P.S. Sleepers should win an award! 🏆
