'The Sideman Designer' Podcast

Release weekly, 'The Sideman Designer' is a podcast for supporting players; for the cast members keeping the show running and the band playing; for those people bringing everyone together to give their best performance.

It's my opportunity to share thoughts on business, freelancing, and current trends in the world of design. There are book recomendations, links to fellow podcasters, and conversations with some exceptional people coming in the future.

Episode 4 - Quitting Your Job

Four weeks in and we're building momentum... This episode I share some great podcasts I've been listening to during a week of torrential rain, plus go (sort of) deep on when quitting your job is a good idea. As always feedback, comments, and conversation are welcome!

Episode 3 - It's Not a Case of The Mondays

We're three episodes in which some people might call a milesone. This week I have a small ramble about the week that was - reading, networking, and giant monsters punching each other - and go deep on why I really love a Monday morning. You could learn to love them, too!

Episode 2 - Giving Away Your Time

Welcome to episode two! Thanks for sticking with me. In this show I talk about giving away your time and why, sometimes, you just need to say 'no' to that request for a cup of coffee or a quick chat.
