Lovely show, but sometimes feels like Khoi is reading a script

This show is tremendous. I love to listen to it. It makes me smarter and the guests are great. However, sometimes it’s far too obvious that Khoi is reading. And if he’s not, then he takes on this ‘reading’ voice that’s very contrasted with the conversational speed, tone and sound of the other voices at other points in the podcast, and even very contrasted by how he sounds when he’s just talking.

Hope this helps!

Good Show Among Other Podcasts About Design

Well produced and informative show. I look forward to listening to it every week. Topics are varied and the experts interviewed always have something on point to say. Personally it’s been helpful as I take on more design responsibilities at my company. There a couple of things I’d like the see the hosts improve. Enunciate clearly; sometimes it’s hard to clearly the name of an expert you’re referring to. The show notes on the Gimlet website should be more comprehensive instead of linking to the Adobe blog. And don’t ask your audience to fill a survey about the show when really it’s a survey about Adobe products...

Off to a good start

I put off starting to listen — will it be too basic? too dorky? — but Wireframe is on-point and well produced, as expected from Gimlet.

I agree with other reviewers that the Adobe branded-ness doesn’t feel like an imposition, and that the scripted dialogue is my least favorite bit.

I’m casting my vote that the show’s audience can handle a bit more complexity. Two instances that illustrate what I perceived as missed opportunities:

1) In the Civics episode (#2), the point was well made that good design is iterative... but I was sad that they didn’t quite land a key point about the Boston 311 solution: between the users, the city employees, and the technology, the processing effort of matching ‘what is the user asking’ to ‘what can the city do’ has to go SOMEwhere. Each solution they covered put that burden on a different one of those 3 components. Only recently has machine learning gotten good enough to shoulder the processing burden, allowing users a natural input without overwhelming the city employees. That part of the story is interesting to me and was elided.

2) In the AR episode (#4), I was really surprised that Pokemon Go — perhaps the only use of AR yet to crack the mainstream slightly — wasn’t mentioned, even after teeing it up with a mention of an AR graffiti “scavenger hunt.” Games are often conceptual test beds / vectors for social acceptance, and it would’ve been nice for that idea to get a nod.

Overall, I will definitely keep listening!
