Design By Committee: A Podcast Appearance by Me, Corey Vilhauer

Secretly — and I know I’m not alone in this — I want to host a podcast.

This isn’t a new thing, not at all. I tried once. I really did, but faking a You Look Nice Today-style podcast is harder than it looks. And also mostly not funny, apparently.

I’ve been on a few podcasts. I absolutely loved being a part of Write Now about a year ago. And I am absolutely perplexed as to how a guest spot on a beer podcast led to this weird out-of-context quote that I never remember saying.

Which brings us to right now: a few weeks back, I was lucky enough to be a guest on Design By Committee, hosted by Matt Grocki and Justin Davis, where I actually got to talk about work stuff and, dare I say, sound like I know what I’m talking about.

We talked about our shared industry history. We talked about the time I had pickle juice dumped on my back. And, we talked about writing for accessibility, breaking content into robot-readable chunks for content management systems, and a handful of other off-the-cuff content and UX topics.

All of the thanks go to Justin and Matt for inviting me. You can listen below, or subscribe here. I look forward to part two — even more than I look forward to finally biting the bullet and creating my own podcast, which will never happen so please stop asking.
