I just recently got introduced to the podcast world. I had been searching for ways to learn new development techniques, hear other designer’s opinions and workflows and also fill up my 45 minute commute. Andy Weisman is actually the person that turned me on to podcasts, so a HUGE thanks to him! He follows a lot of stuff from the 5by5 network and had recommended several of them to me. Along with the shows from 5by5, I started searching for some other podcasts that tied specifically to mobile app design. That’s when I found Iterate, a podcast that focuses on mobile and app design for all iOS, Mac, Android and other platforms. It’s hosted by Marc Edwards, Rene Ritchie and Seth Clifford. Every other week they have a round table where they discuss the latest in design and tech news along with a guest where they get their background and discuss their design and/or development workflow.
