Hey Designer News!
As the community continues to grow, we’re always exploring new ways to encourage a meaningful design discourse. A podcast feels like a natural next step, so today we’re excited to bring you the first episode of DN FM.
Longtime DN’er Sam Solomon is at the helm, and he’ll be bringing you a bi-weekly show that’s part interview, part news. Each episode we're joined by an exciting guest to talk shop, then Sam covers the latest happenings in the DN community (top stories, behind-the-scenes announcements and extra goodies.)
We really want community involvement to become a consistent part of the show. Using Anchor.fm we’re experimenting with an Office Hours segment; the point being to open up a new channel to engage with DN, with other members, and to share the diversity of perspective you bring to the community. If you’d like to opt in to this segment and get featured on the show, follow us on Anchor and stay tuned.
Finally, please suggest improvements and guest recommendations while we’re still working out the kinks. Thanks!

Seriously though - can you get the RSS feed from Soundcloud? That way we can subscribe manually. Thanks
:( "failed to download podcast"
Hmm. Sorry about that. You could try
Nice, that works :) Subscribed.
On another note - would love to know how you installed/built the podcast miniplayer widget - it's really great!
Glad you like it! It's a fairly involved process, but I'd be happy to explain more if you wanted to shoot me an email.
With enough interest I'd also totally consider open-sourcing it :)
I usually can't listen to podcasts if they are over Skype. It's something in the audio quality that makes me listen to something or not, so if there is noise, or echo, I'm pretty much out. I hope this will be fixed in the next episodes.
Also, don't stick to the usual interview and find some design topics to debate on. Have some q&a's or something.
agreed. can't listen to podcasts, despite how interesting, that sound like they're being conducted through two tin cans and a string.
Aren't you just an audio connoisseur!
This is the mvp. It's going to improve
You da man. I'll run it by Sam.
Oh man, I haven't even listened to this one yet. I just meant in general, please don't take personal offense.
Oh no sweat. I misinterpreted that :-)
Does anybody have the iTunes URL for this podcast?
+1. Would love to add this to my podcast app.
It's still in the iTunes approval process - should be live shortly. Thanks!
Looks like it has been approved by Apple. Here's the link! https://itunes.apple.com/ca/podcast/designer-news/id1139346989
Who is talking from the ECHO room ? Ehh.. You Know? :P
(PS: it takes a lot of time to load. esp it does not load in Firefox Win 8.1)
Yeah, I plan on buying a sound box to record in—hopefully that helps. My new place has concrete floors, which makes recording tough.
One of my co-workers built this https://medium.com/@allanwhite/diy-podcasting-microphone-box-64668e6eb540#.khxqj6t87
This is exactly what I was looking for! Thanks Ryan.
Do you use headphones? It almost sounds like there's some speakers in play here.
That said the voice-of-god vibe is not too bad ;)
Could buy a portable sound shield too that might help - http://www.monoprice.com/Product?p_id=602650&gclid=CNfyy42Koc4CFZSIfgodcpwD_w
Thanks for the mention, Sam! Really enjoyed the first Podcast, nice surprise to hear my name/project being featured :)

This is awesome. I really liked it
Can't wait to listen to this.
After a brief listen though, I would suggest you get a proper audio setup seriously soon. I'd even hold of a second episode until you do. I listen to a lot of podcasts and there's some crazy echo in this that makes it really hard to listen to.
Sorry if that sounds super negative. I'm super psyched to listen to this all later :)
We hear you (pun intended) and we're striving for a lot more clarity + audio ducking in the next episode. Thanks Ollie
Could you give us ETA when you'll remove the 'NEW' badge? I keep thinking that I have new message/notification because of the green badge on navbar.
Haha, #UXdarkpatterns. Uhh, next week?
