One of the best!!!
This podcast series is really one of the best ones out. Episode number 15 with Luke Wroblewski is the one that got me. Design for mobile first has been an argument of mine for a while now. He offers professional experience to help support the arguments and gives examples and statistics to help the fight for better design. Keep up the great work guys.
Don't waste your time on this one.
Horribly recorded. Not worth the listen.
