Awesome and fun!
This is a great podcast! If you’re a designer or a brand manager you’re in for a real treat. I listen to a few different podcasts about branding and marketing and this is one of my favourites. John and Franca are really fun to listen to. They also have some really great guests that provide some great info. I highly recommend this one!
This is a great podcast. I am a long-time graphic designer and love listening to John interview his guests. I especially love it when John and his partner Franca do an episode. They are a great team and their conversations are genuine and fun. John is brilliant in the way he leads the interviews and I faithfully listen to him on the way home. I can’t wait for the next episode!
Witty and Intelligent
I have listened to a lot of podcasts about marketing and business but this one is definitely the best. John Miziolek is smart, funny and masterfully weaves through the complex world of branding and design to present important insights. The content is great and John's guests are top notch. I highly recommend this one!
