WHY UX? is a podcast about the everyday heroes of UX design. We'll be talking to the women and men doing the work. We'll be covering their past, how did they find their path to UX design? Their present, what do they do on a daily basis? Their future, what are they expecting UX to look like in the future and what will it mean to them? The podcast interviewees will nominate who we'll be interviewing next, so we expect it to be some interesting people with vastly different backgrounds. One of the beauties of the UX profession. The podcast is focusing on UX designers located in Copenhagen, Denmark, to expand the community awareness.
