Designers Drink is a podcast for designers, anyone interested in design, anyone who works with designers, and anyone who wants to be a designer. The purpose of this show is to make the design world a little smaller—to bring us together so we can know each other and learn from each other and be inspired by each other. If you or someone you know would be a great fit for an episode, email me.

Lee Brenner and I met through the, now defunct, ATX Built Slack group. Formerly of frog, Big Big Bomb, and Heyride, Lee joined me to talk about how his creativity blossomed by growing up on a farm and what went wrong with technology and the US 2016 presidential election. We also drank really strong margaritas.
