IDer interested in UX ,

Great podcast!

Sophia is a great, fun host with a strong background in the field. I love her honesty and her fun interview style. I would definitely recommend this podcast to anyone interested in UX.

Ali Kimm ,

Fun and Insightful!

I’ve only listened to episode 1 so far, but Sophia is an entertaining host! She and her guest were fun to listen to, and as a new UX designer, I learned a lot from her and her guest sharing about their several years of working in UX. I’ll definitely continue to listen!

AtlannuhMan ,

Fun and motivational!

These are conversations I can really sink my geek teeth into and the first two episodes have left me with fun, actionable stuff I can try to make myself and my work better. I look forward to listening to future episodes!!
