The past year-and-a-half of hosting the Experience Design podcast has been extraordinary.I still pinch myself when I think of all of the amazing guests that were kind enough to say, “yes” to some random guy (me) to ask them questions about design and life.I still pinch myself when I think of how this little passion project went from a handful of friends and family listening, to over 150 countries tuning in.But lately I’ve been doing some deep looks inside, and evaluating how I’m spending my “free” time outside of my 9-5 job.And, I’ve decided to focus more of that time on family and passions outside of my career. So... I am sunsetting the Experience Design podcast.BUT!I’m happy to announce that I have partnered with Bottle Rocket (where I work) to bring a new podcast in-house.The podcast will expand beyond UX design and also take a look inside business strategy, the impact of technology and an ever-evolving product landscape.The new podcast will be titled LIFTOFF and I can't wait for you to be part of it and to introduce my co-host to all of you.I’m excited to be:Creating this with bottle rocket.Bringing on a co-host. (he's seriously brilliant).Continuing to connect w/ all of you.Focusing more of my “free time” efforts on family and friends.Stay tuned and get ready to LIFTOFF in the next few weeks…. :)
