Today Tara connects with Debbie Millman host of the first and longest running podcast about design, Design Matters. Debbie is also an author, educator, and brand strategist. She is the Chair of the School of Visual Arts Masters of Branding Program, the Chief Marketing Officer at Sterling Brands, and President Emeritus at AIGA. She has interviewed superstars, and some of Tara’s personal heroes like Malcolm Gladwell, Dan Pink, and Seth Godin. Last year iTunes named Design Matters, one of the top fifteen podcasts.
Tara wanted to find out how hosting Design Matters has impacted Debbie’s life and career. They talk about the 10-12 hours she puts into interview prep, how she started with just a phone line in 2005, and the opportunities that have come her way thanks to the podcast.
