Wesley's doing a great service for anyone (such as myself) new to the field of UX with this podcast. It's great to hear professionals share their insight and encouragement, and hearing UX concepts being thrown around conversationally and in the context of real professional scenarios is so immensely helpful.
Each episode has been not only informative, but also entertaining. They helped keep me occupied today for the long boring drive from SE Wisconsin to Minneapolis. Made a 5 hour drive feel like nothing.
Keep up the excellent work -- I'll keep listening!
Informative and Fun
Wesley’s interview style helps lead guests through extremely valuable topics to User Interface beginners and pros alike, with a level of entertainment that captivates listeners throughout each episode.
The guest list isn’t half bad either. Definitely one of my favorite new industry podcasts.
I really enjoy this podcast and am looking forward to hearing more episodes. The beginner’s perspective is a fresh and engaging outlook. Thanks + keep it up!
