Debbie interviews like a prosecutor. She does her research and the podcast feels like a session where she confirms what she has uncovered about a guest-not a conversation. Her coy voice really grates.

I think this is the World's best podcast only for designers.

I have been listening to Design Matters for a few years and I absolutely love it! Debbie draws us in along with her in to the lives of some really amazing creatives out there. It’s my go to podcast for inspiration. Highly recommend!

This is another great podcast, there are many people who share their design experiences across their industries. I really enjoyed the fact that there are lots of revelations and insights into their own work and art. Definitely do you listen to this if you are interested in design.

One of the best interviewers with the best guests. Well researched before so that the discussions can get right to the meaty bits. I can be pulled in and wrapped up into people who I had never heard of before in minutes. Love love love

Dear Debbie, thank you for making the great shows you make. I love the topics, but above all, the way you talk, your softness, tranquility and contemplation and at the same time your energy, joy and belief. Another big hug from The Netherlands.

I absolutely fell in love with this podcast.

I first heard Debbie on the Tim Ferriss show, and it was one of the most powerful, inspiring conversations I’ve ever heard. Subscribing to this podcast was a no brainer. I only wish the Shirley Manson convo was 2 hours longer! It may be a long shot to meet you in person Debbie, but just want to...Read full review »

Maaria assami via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/18/18
A pleasure to listen to - great interviewer and wonderful guest having an smooth and objective flow. However, the often dense social conclusions or political thoughts, agendas and hysteria are so frustratingly laughable, that they are often times all that is taken away, instead of their...Read full review »

Design Matters is the best design podcast ever. Hands down. It continues to evolve and get even better season to season. The depth and insights and the research and thoughtful backstories provide entertaining and informative lessons for the listeners. Can’t wait each week for the new episodes.

This is one of the best podcasts about design out there. Debbie Millman is excellent and all of her interviews are great. This should be on every designers podcast list.

Absolutely love this podcast - and the host is fantastic. I listen to a LOT of podcasts, and highly recommend this one!
Srothmeyer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/21/18
I love the stories, but the host seems shallow and silly. She is a huge distraction from the depth and complexity of the guests.
RollerSkateRosie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/20/18
i never miss a podcast from Design Matters because: a) it covers sooo much more than design b) each interview is insightful, unexpected, intimate and educational c) i live for the “how did you know that?!” moment ... Debbie Millman does her homework! d) it inspires me to get to work and reach...Read full review »

I just love listening to Debbie Millman's interviews. Her guests are amazing people, and she does so much research to find out interesting and often odd details about them, which often surprises them and draws them out in unexpected ways. The conversations are filled with compassion and fun, but...Read full review »

Each and every episode is jam packed with some of the most inspirational quotes, ideas, thoughts, feelings, and insights into one of the most exciting occupations in the world - design. Start at episode 1, listen to them all, and repeat; it’s worth it.
KeaganHoffman via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 03/06/18
I have been going through some major changes in what I want to do. I found this Podcast by searching for Brene Brown and it gave me so much hope!
PrimeTimeParent via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/18
These podcasts run long, so sometimes it's hard for me to fit them in, but they are well worth it. She interviews people she admires, but is not afraid to challenge them, and she really does her research.
JC Berg via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/21/18

Debbie's recent interview with Richard Saul Wurman blew my mind. I felt like I was listening to a verbal rodeo and actually thought she might relent and oblige Wurman's direct, and somewhat emotional, dodges during portions of the interview. Debbie asked good questions, even the ones he didn't...Read full review »

The best podcast out there for designers. Or anyone who wants to learn something new from different life experiences.

If Debbie is not the finest interviewer working, she's at least belongs in any conversation about the best. She approaches every interview prepared, open, and eager to learn. What else can a listener seek? A wonderful voice? She has that too. Thank you Debbie.

Insight into human nature, life, creativity, oh yeah, and design. Never fails to inspire and make me think about the world in new ways. The audio quality is so good, it sounds like I’m part of a conversation in a quiet room, not just listening through my headphones.
