The hosts of the UX Podcast want to empower aspiring UX designers by encouraging open and widespread conversation about many UX-related topics, such as design, research, business, and tech. Their primary motivation is to educate and eliminate stoic behaviours that often happen in the design world, such as authentic knowledge share between designers.

At the beginning of our UXUI career, we might need to learn how important it is to visualize, sketch, and diagram to undercover ideas for overcoming design problems. This episode of the UX podcast can help you understand to subject more deeply: Visual thinking with Eva-Lotta Lamm.
