Most popular design podcasts of 2016

When Alex, Patrizia and I launched the MEX podcast in February 2016, we begun with a notion: an ongoing conversation with our diverse community about how to design better digital experiences.  However, we could not have anticipated it would lead to such a wealth of interesting guests, themes and explorations.

In 11 months we have:

  1. Published 25 episodes and over 27 hours of design discussion to listeners in 66 countries
  2. Interviewed 18 pioneering design thinkers with a broad range of perspectives
  3. Created 3 special field trip episodes including: visiting Tigerspike’s VR studio, recording with a live audience at the MEX/16 conference and exploring The Central Research Laboratory.
  4. Shared 25 pages of show notes, including links, quotes, photos and videos to augment each episode
  5. Covered 20 themes ranging from designing trusted experiences, building for creativity, employing artificial intelligence, achieving accessibility and conducting design due diligence

Our most popular 11 episodes (in order) of 2016 were:
