My favorite podcast

Please do more! This is such an invaluable resource to new designers. Like having a bunch of incredible mentors at your fingertips. No other podcast dives this deep or provides this level of insight into the profession.

Q & Co ,

Spot on encouragement for designers

First episode was a hit (for me). Honest perspective on what it’s like being in the trade and being an interior designer is the golden nugget. I appreciate her willingness to ask hard questions and the person being interviewed being willing to share their experience.
