Learn from the best!
I've been listening to CGI Podcast during my commutes. As a designer, I've come across various podcasts that dig into the minds of creative forces, so I approached this with similar expectations. Check this out:
From the first episode, Will sets the bar in many ways. Will's introduced me to individuals I should have known about previously. Their relentless work ethic and contagious passion is conveyed through inviting interviews that are incredibly clear and well led. There's a good balance between both parties in the conversation. Whether you're looking for insights, or just enjoy a good story, there's a lot to take away from Will and his guests.
Interesting topics being discussed! Keep it going!
