Actionable Learning Meets Years of Experience

What a nice surprise to find this podcast! Right off the bat in Episode 001 the host pulled in a former Apple superhero who was able to blur the lines between developer/engineer/designer. Great to peek behind the curtain at people’s processes and experiences as well as some of their painful lessons learned along the way. Years of experience condensed into some actionable steps you can use tomorrow.

Plus, it’s presented in a fun flavor with the superhero theme. Bonus — terrific audio quality. Keep it going!

Finally, a meaty podcast on UX and Design!

I’ve been a designer since back in 1996 (right around the same time as Jason, our esteemed host), and I can safely say this is definitely one of the most professional and informationally meaty podcasts in the vein of UX/design that I’ve listened to. Through his diverse and accomplished guests, he delves into very practical and tangible information that would help anybody from the novice to pro, whether you’re a UX, product, or visual designer. Also, this is consistent content at a weekly frequency that you can count on. Most that I’ve listened to are spotty at best. Do yourself a favor and tap the ‘subscribe’ button!

Fresh and fun podcast

I am a fresh UX/UI designer taking my first steps into the field. If you want a podcast that is both fun and insightful, you’ve found it. I’ve listened to a lot of his podcasts and I’ve learned something new from each one. It never feels repetitive or boring. This podcast is great for people who are new and learning. Based on my coworker feedback, it’s also great for experienced UXers. Jason has mastered the personal and professional balance of the podcast. Each interview feels like a story instead of a dry interview.

The theme is so fun and I can’t help but to use my new found favorite phrase “user defender” all the time in the office. I also love the illustrations of superheroes, AKA interviewees, on the website. It puts a face to the voice.

Fight on Jason!
