The designer as podcaster

Podcasts deliver a mini-conference to the smartphone in your pocket

Current design practice can be so demanding for studio employees and freelancers, that taking a moment to press pause and engage in critical discourse can seem like a luxury. For many designers, attending a costly international conference is out of the question. Design podcasts are filling this gap, providing a low-cost space for reflection and debate; a testing ground for ideas; and an escape from creative isolation.
