Connie Malamed and Judy delved much more into design thinking and applying it to that voo-doo that we do…with sprinkles of Tin Can, knowing when you’re done, and egos.
We even talked about tools a bit — for wireframing, prototyping, and user testing.
By the way, if you’re enjoying these more design-related episodes, be sure to check out Emergent Radio’s newest podcast: Designing Opinion.
Judy drank water. (Back off… she’s on antibiotics.)
Connie drank Sweet Wild Berry Zinger Ice Herbal Tea from Celestial Seasonings.

In our nineteenth episode, we were thrilled to have Connie Malamed, The eLearning Coach, join us for a conversation that could have easily lasted another couple of hours. We covered more about being a consultant, design thinking and design processes, and some of our favorite podcasts.
We’ve both been big fans of Connie’s for a long time… check out her blog, book, and iPhone app!
Brian drank a buddy’s homemade barley wine.
Judy drank Elysian Avatar Jasmine IPA.

Emergent Radio is proud to announce a new show, Designing Opinion. Chicago’s renowned (or close to it) designer Jason Early (@jason_early), of gruntmonkey fame (@gruntmonkey), wants to talk about design, the part it plays in our lives, and the industry surrounding it.
This is where he gets to do that. Enjoy!

Guest Aaron Silvers (@aaronesilvers) joins Jason Early (@jason_early) for the inaugural episode in which they discuss the design and short comings of digital products, the responsibility of product creators to their users, and putting trust, belief, and expectation into things we have zero control over. But it probably turned out as a bunch of rambling. Hooray episode 1!

In our eighteenth episode, ex-Pikachu Craig Wiggins joins us for drinks and chat about jobs, consulting, designing vs. developing, just doing stuff, and generally being a good autodidact’s handmaiden.

For our one-year anniversary episode, we podcasted about podcasting — how The ToolBar and Emergent Radio were born, which tools we use, how our philosophies have changed, and lessons we’ve learned over the first year.
And… one more big thank-you to all of our guests during the first year: Kevin Thorn, Julie Dirksen, Diane Elkins, Jason Early, Aaron Silvers, David Kelly, and Steve Flowers.
Special thanks to Craig Wiggins (@oxala75), as well, for interacting and pushing us forward (and forcing his people to listen).
Brian drank Yellow Snow IPA* from Rogue
Judy drank Organic Hopworks IPA from HUB
* The real story, from the nice folks at Rogue Brewery: “Yellow Snow is the same product that we have brewed for the past 10 yrs…..maybe you remember the original edition back in 2001 and 2002 which actually was a Pale Ale. Yellow Snow has been an IPA since 2003.”

Our friend Steve Flowers was kind enough to drop by to talk about a whole lot of things: organizational change, digital solutions, Tin Can, and — most significantly — establishing a library of design patterns for instructional design. If you want to talk more with him, contact him (@xpconcept) on Twitter or head on over to one of our new favorite blogs, androidgogy, which just happens to be written by him.
Brian drank St. Arnold’s Homefront IPA.
Judy drank Ten-Penny by Rogue (and Nike).
