Greetings User Defenders!
User Defenders: Podcast is an industry leading/celebrated UX podcast focused on UX design & personal growth.
Being a great UX designer begins and ends with being a great human.
This UX podcast will help you become the best, most powerful UX designer (and human) you can be.
Yes, you’ll discover how-to’s, but much more importantly you’ll discover why-to’s.
Every episode is sure to inspire and equip you on how to better fight for your users and business, and dare I say change the world (even if only for one human at a time) in a much deeper and more tangible way than you ever thought possible.

One of the reasons I enjoy listening to @UserDefenders, aside from it being super informative, is because @jasonogle has such a soothing voice. Ha, ha. I don’t know if I’m alone in this, but I find it really calming.
