#253 The state of accessibility with Derek Featherstone
For years, accessibility was seen as the domain of the engineer. Fixing an accessibility would be about writing code. As a maturing industry, and as we understand people with different types of disabilities, we are starting to better understand and appreciate the role of design in accessibility. Accessibility legend Derek Featherstone joins us to talk...
#252 Toxic dogmatism
Episode 252 is a linkshow. Per and James discuss two articles that have grabbed their attention – We discuss a number of serious issues that the design industry faces plus we take a look at “Stories” and their abundance.
#251 Multimodal design with Cheryl Platz
Designing for multiple forms of input and output is no easy task. The dramatic rise in the number of microphones in devices has pushed multimodal design to new levels of complexity. Cheryl Platz joins us to talk about designing in this multimodal world.
#250 Factfulness with Anna Rosling Rönnlund
Anna and the Gapminder foundation work to promote a fact-based worldview that everyone can understand. They want to help all of us move away from a dramatic worldview that is stressful, wrong and contributes to poor decision-making. “We realised people thought they knew what the world was like around them, but they were usually wrong.”
#249 Digital anthropology with Genevieve Bell
How will your design be used in 10,000 years? When we produce designs and create technical systems we rarely think in such time-frames, yet many of today’s technology includes ideas decades old, even hundreds. Anthropologist Genevieve Bell joins us to talk about digital anthropology, cyber physical systems, and the new educational needs that have arisen.

This podcast is a great resource on UX and anything design and tech. James, Per and their guests provide awesome insight and tips.
Great podcast, but could you fix the volume?
Great topics and range of guests. Very informative and broadly covers UX.
As others have mentioned, though, could you fix the volume please? The dialogue is quiet but then the theme music is at full volume. I have to turn up my phone’s volume all the way just to hear the conversation and then the music comes on unexpectedly and hurts my ears.
As a long time UXer I appreciate having a solid resource like this to check in with. I just finished listening to Donna Spencer's episode in 2017 regarding Information Architecture, found it spot on (not surprisingly), and look forward to more recent episodes!
