    The Three Phases of a Career

    The Three Phases of a Career

    Kate and Laura really start to crack under the pressure as they offer advice about the three phases of your career: smartass, kickass, and badass. Mostly it's an excuse to say "ass" a lot. Like they need an excuse.

    Kate and Laura continue to panic this week as they talk a bit about how remote user research is different from in person (besides being, you know, not in person) and also how everything is different now anyway, so just use your best judgement.

    Remote Design

    In this week's episode, Kate and Laura yell about how to pretend you're still getting work done while you're actually searching online for toilet paper during a pandemic. Also, some tips about actually getting some design done from home, which is a lot like getting design done at work, but it's easier to panic unobtrusively.

Fun way to learn UX

Omg Laura and Kate are so funny... I just learned about this podcast. I’m only up to episode 3 so far but was already laughing since episode 1. This is such an awesome podcast to listen to while I’m doing work. Looking forward to more!

Laughing in traffic - the best medicine!

Thanks for making me laugh. Loved the everyone is a designer episode! I was super frustrated and a tad confused by this phenomenon as well! Looking forward to more episodes! You guys are hilarious!

-2 stars for not enough wine

I had to pour my own glass as a workaround. Plus 7 stars for snark and making me grin and laugh out loud on a near constant basis. Love this. It’s just fun.
