Design Matters with Debbie Millman is a thought-provoking podcast which profiles industry-leading graphic designers, change agents, artists, writers and educators. Its a podcast i’ve recommended before, but listening to Jessica Hische and Michael Arad while ironing the other night it really struck me again how powerful the spoken word is and how fascinating it can be to hear the people who’s work we often see. There’s too many great episodes to recommend any specifically, but if you have time on your hands give some a listen.
“Design Matters began in February of 2005 with an idea and a telephone line. I thought it would be a great way to ask my heroes everything I wanted to know about their lives and their thoughts and their careers without seeming stalker-y. In the process, I gleaned the most magnificent view of some of the greatest design thinkers and practitioners of our time. I realized the opportunity to share the brilliance of my guests with an audience I never expected was the gift of a lifetime.” – Debbie Millman
