I love a good podcast and am always asking and recommending them to people. I’ve shared a bunch of design podcasts before, but this time I thought I’d mix it up and also include a few that may not have anything directly to do with design.
Obsessed. This was recommended to me and I think I have passed it onto about 30 people since. A supportive forum to discuss the big topics all 21st century feminists agree on, whilst confessing “buts” — the insecurities, hypocrisies and fears that undermine lofty principles. It has me crying with laughter on a regular basis, while educating me on so many topics such as feminism, race, identity, gender, sexuality, politics and ablism.
A Decolonized Podcast for lovers on the margins, dismantling white supremacy and black queer love ethics, pop culture, house plants and a sea of books. I’ve been following Ericka Hart ever since her iconic cover on Riposte magazine. An image like that is a powerful thing to see among a bookshelf—even in 2018. This podcast might sound confronting for good reason, and it’s teaching me awareness and that I need to unlearn a lot of shit.
FormFiftyFive changed their name and have switched from a blog to more of a collaborative shop. They also have a podcast where they interview designers and artists, keeping episodes to a short and sweet 20-30 minutes.
Never Not Creative is a community for creatives to come together and tackle the challenges we face in the creative industry. From how to manage and improve your mental health, to getting paid what you're worth and everything in between.
Neuroscientist, philosopher, and best-selling author Sam Harris explores important and controversial questions about the human mind, society, and current events. I’ve only listened to a few of these because they require quite a bit of attention but I’ve found it very interesting so far. If you need one to start with, listen to Michael Pollan talk about his new book How to Change Your Mind.
