Love it!

I love the idea of this podcast. I think as it progresses, it could turn into an extremely useful tool for people who are in school, about to graduate or just starting off a career in the world of design.

It is really important as a designer, to understand different perspectives, and this podcast does just that. It allows people to see the different struggles new designers are faced with, as well as the triumphs they get to experience.

I would definitely suggest listening to this podcast!

Ep 3

Loving the episode about Brittany (my sister) its a great conversation. And to be honest I could never tell my friends what my sister did (because as many times as she told me I just couldn’t remember) but now I can educate them just a little bit better. Thanks JP its a great 'cast.

Enjoy the various perspectives!

I really enjoy listening to this podcast - it’s always great to hear from peers and industry professionals making their way in various design jobs that you can easily relate to and be inspired by.
