Do you feel like learning more about User Experience? Taste some design podcasts with this playlist.
The best way to know whether a podcast fits your taste is by listening to an episode, obviously. But, which one to pick? Unless it's a show like Serial, starting from episode 01 is not always the best idea…
Worry no more. We created this playlist with our one favorite episode from each podcast to help you find out what better fits your taste.
Furthermore, keeping the tradition of odd analogies, we grouped the episodes by: appetizers (informal chat to hear any time); main (that might need more focus to hear and learn); side dishes (topics that you might not hear about all the time); and desserts (some sweetness to take a time-off from UX savory and be inspired).
Press play and bon appétit.
