My favorite workday mornings start with a good cup of coffee and a podcast. Staying up to date in this industry is a challenge. It requires continuous learning. Listening to podcasts while taking care of routine tasks is a fun way to get some of that learning time in. When I’m going through the morning email or taking care of admin tasks, I like to catch up with one of my favorite UX podcasts. I’ve learned an enormous amount from following these, and I love hearing the ideas and unique perspectives of other UX pros.
I’ll be adding to this list as I discover new podcasts, so be sure to bookmark it!
Adventures in Design with Mark Brickey
I love this podcast! If you’re a designer, you’ll want to listen to every episode of this one. It’s all things related to the designer’s life, from agency life to freelancing — “A daily talk show that explores people who have designed happiness into their creative professional lives.”
http://uxpodcast.com/ – User Experience, digital media, UX and web business tips, and more. There are several different formats for this podcast − event shows, guest shows, link shows and topic shows. The link shows, in which hosts James Royal-Lawson and Per Axbom discuss three recent articles, are my favorites. They’ve done some excellent interview segments with UX pros as well.
