Find your people
Adventures in Design is a great podcast -- super informative, deeply knowledgeable, filled with emotional stories of real people, and totally hilarious. You get to know the returning "characters" and feel like you're just hanging out, but hanging out getting great conversations and reveling in their successes, and filled with empathy for their setbacks. It's really THE podcast for working class creatives -- people who don't think they're doing some mystic magic, but are instead there in the trenches with their clients, building something better for everyone. It's rad finding my tribe -- other people that think in very similar ways to me, and nerd out about the same things I love.And just as important, the community of working class designers that has sprung up around the show -- we're not just listeners; we feel like we're part of a group. In the same way that there's a network of punk bands across the country, connected by touring, we have a network of creatives and weirdoes around the world that is being connected by AID. And we're befriending each other through the Slack channel, social media, and meeting up in person when we travel. I consider these folks real friends. Come join the circle.
