What are your top-3 favorite design podcasts, or podcasts that help you in business, that you would recommend? It does not need to be a very popular show, or specifically aim at designers, but I'd love to find a few new podcasts to listen to which add value. Thanks!
I tend to listen to non-work related podcasts to avoid burnout, but do really enjoy 99 Percent Invisible.
Totally agree. I think it's important to get inspiration from a lot of different places so I tend to listen to podcasts on just about anything but design. There's some great teams doing cool investigative podcasts, audio dramas, and a ton of other stuff out there. I don't need to give 60 minutes of my day to listening to two people debate A/B testing :)
My fave is Presentable, with Jeff Veen. Thoughtful and super friendly, with smart guests.
High Resolution was a delightful 25-part series with some excellent interviews, recommended even though it's a couple years old.
I'll echo that Wireframe by Adobe (with Khoi Vinh) is also thoughtful and high-quality, but feels just a tad over-produced to me sometimes.
I fully agree with 99% Invisible
I listen to a lot of podcasts that deal with the responsibilities of a designer (design ethics): Voice of Design (By Mule Design's Mike Monteiro and Erika Hall) and Your Undivided Attention (with Tristan Harris, former (now anti) Facebook ethicist)
And I also like to understand the cultural, technological and financial context in which designs live. For that, I recommend: Hidden Forces (by Demitri Kofinas)
Not even closely keeping up with all of these, but hand picking single episodes whenever I feel like listening to a design related podcast (typically on longer train rides) from this pool:
- Design Details
- New Layer
- This is HCD
- Jake and Jonathan
- The Observatory
- Revision Path
- Google Method
- 99% Invisible
- Adobe Wireframe
- Design Better Podcast
Adobe's Wireframe podcast is really good. Then there's the evergreen 99% Invisible, although it is a bit tangentially related.
I tend to listen to more business/entrepreneur related podcasts. Like Taylor commented... I don't listen to work-related podcasts to avoid burnout.
For me it changes. Right now: Typeradio, Design Details and Overtime.
