Love this podcast! It's the intelligent banter of Jessica and Michael, now brought to interviews with fascinating people. Can't wait to hear what's next.
I prefer this one instead of The Observatory, and the love their mixed choice of guests interviewed.
Michael and Jessica are always a great duo in podcasting and I believe they have found there niche here.
They did it again!
Once again Michael and Jessica elevate the conversation of design beyond what something looks like- this time focusing on how to be most effective. Thanks for your deep, broad (and fun) conversations that both tie together and unravel my preconceptions!
