Thoughtful. Engaging. Cool.

Really enjoying this podcast. I love getting the opportunity to hear conversations about how designers found their calling, how they came up through the ranks and how they approach their craft. The production is excellent and Mike is a fantastic interviewer. Looking forward to the next installment.

Informative and engaging

As a UX Designer I've found The Goods to be both informative and engaging. The first episode about game design and UX was particularly interesting as the game industry is often not covered. The Goods increases your design knowledge by exposing you to interesting and niche designers in a digestable format.

This is a must listen for any designer.
