#24 – You Can’t Beer Everybody


Brian and Judy have a great conversation with Chad Udell about lots of mobile learning (mlearning) stuff (naturally), stuff that isn’t mlearning but people think is, home brewing, Letterpress strategy, and (as usual), we talk about other podcast guests behind their backs.

The drinks

Brian drank Yule Shoot Your Eye Out from Karbach

Judy drank Rudolph Imperial Red* from Three Creeks

Chad drank Merry Mischief Gingerbread Stout from Sam Adams

* Rudolph is indeed an imperial, so props to Chad on calling that. Judy neglected to mention that she liked it quite a lot by the end of the show.

#21 – We Got Your Buzz Words Right Here


Judy talked and drank with Kris Rockwell and Reuben Tozman, and it was pretty much like this (thanks, Kris).

We talked about the parallel evolution of humans and technology, innovations in learning, HTML5, Tin Can, mlearning, gaming, gamification, and some of the new cliches of the learning world, including The Matrix and Captain Sully.

It was a conversation that could have gone on for hours (and particularly if we hadn’t kept getting interrupted by kid stuff), so we plan to record again soon with these guys.

The drinks

Judy drank Little Sumpin’ Wild from Lagunitas

Reuben drank Woodford Bourbon

Kris drank Johnny Walker Blue

#19 1/2 – Instructional Design Thinking


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.

The drinks

Judy drank water. (Back off… she’s on antibiotics.)

Connie drank Sweet Wild Berry Zinger Ice Herbal Tea from Celestial Seasonings.

#19 – Design Outing


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!

The drinks:

Brian drank a buddy’s homemade barley wine.

Judy drank Elysian Avatar Jasmine IPA.

Connie drank water.

#1 – The One We Recorded in Mono


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!
