Spec.fm – The Best Podcasts for Designers and Developers
After an amazing response from the web community, “Design Details” and “Developer Tea” have teamed up to create Spec.fm, a resource to help designers and developers to connect with one another. Their podcasts are downloaded more than 60,000 times per week and we’re working to create new shows to provide the most up-to-date resources and information for the design & development community.
Their episodes are quite casual and not necessarily an “interview-style” show. They have guests on each week but we try to blend the personal and professional; the design resources with the personal stories. Over time they have found that the more open a guest can be, the better listeners will respond and connect with that person. One of their main focuses is keeping the show’s content diverse. This means chatting not only with women, people of color and folks outside of San Francisco, but also it means hosting people from startups, agencies and big companies across all job descriptions. This blending of culture and jobs into one show helps provide a more clear picture of what the design industry can actually be like for designers out there listening.
