Who doesn't love a good podcast?

If you're like me, then chances are you spend some time each week investing in professional development. I'm a firm believer that we should always continue to learn and to develop new skills. Not only does it help us to do what we do better, but it also keeps things interesting because you feel that you're always challenging yourself, discovering new things and keeping what we do fresh and interesting.

Nowadays, it seems like there are countless podcasts out there, so while they're a great way to continue to learn and be inspired, you often have to do some exploration to discover which ones are good and which ones are just taking up space on your iPhone.

This week, I thought I'd share some of my favourite podcasts out there that are based in the design industry. I'd love it if you have any recommendations as well so please feel free to come back to me with any that you think are worth listening to.
