I’ve been doing a ton of work on my computer lately, and while I diligently worked my way through Netflix’s House of Cards, I’ve also been listening to podcasts! Previously I listened to just NPR and a couple of comedy podcasts, but I’ve turned my attention to a couple of illustration and design related podcasts. Check them out:
Design Matters with Debbie Millman: A really interesting design show that has guests including graphic designers, artists, writers, and educators. They talk about their projects, their process, and other design-related issues. Debbie has the opportunity to talk to some big names (a personal favorite: Steven Heller) in a casual way.
Your Dreams My Nightmares: This is an audio side project by illustrator Sam Weber. He interviews illustrators, designers, and art directors in another casual conversation about different aspects of illustration, the industry, and image-making.
I personally like back and forth banter in a less formal setting, which I think is a strength of these podcasts. They are insightful and funny, too!
