My favorite workday mornings start with a good cup of coffee and a UX podcast. We all know that staying up to date is a challenge. This industry requires continuous learning. Listening to podcasts while taking care of routine tasks is an efficient and 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 podcasts. I’ve learned an enormous amount from following these, and hearing the ideas and unique perspectives of other UX pros makes me better at what I do.
I’ll be adding to this list as I discover new podcasts, so be sure to bookmark it!
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.
