Customer Reviews

More than just a design podcast.

These guys do a great job of not only talking about topics in relation to design, but in relation to life as a whole. There's something about the dynamic between them that reminds me a bit of Top Gear with the way they can easily go between discussing something seriously and snapping in casually, occasionally throwing in jokes along the way. Well worth listening to.

Smarts and design

The OTG hosts are THINKERS more than anything. They address topics with confidence, thoughtfulness and honesty. Perhaps a side-effect of an honest, unscripted conversation; but occasionally the quality of the show is degraded when the hosts indulge in a topic's minutiae, rather than addressing the larger relevance or implications of the issue(s) at hand. Fortunately, this fleeting shortcoming is overshadowed by their compelling observations, and a steady rotation of relevant topics. The podcast is most effective when all three of the hosts are actively engaged and self-aware … this seems to happen particularly when they disagree on an issue. Overall, the frank, thoughtful communication you will hear on OTG is much needed in our design schools, online communities, design forums and our professional work. Bravo, dudes.

Intelligent and accessible

I love the format of this podcast; it's like having a discussion with your good friends who happen to be incredibly well-versed in design culture. I seriously think I've learned more from their podcast than I did in school as far as design thinking is concerned. They offer thoughtful opinions on a wide array of topics and with three hosts there are always different points of view. The discussion is intelligent but not in a way that seems pretentious. Please keep this podcast going, I just found it out this week and it's already one of my favorites.
