    2. They have done such a great job with the design of this. The ideas have really paid off on this. I see so much coming from this in the future.

    2. There's no conspiracy. People voted. Congrats on a very well-deserved award to one of the hardest working individuals in the design community. Debbie has always worked hard to promote design education and provide resources for designers of all levels by granting them access to great role-models in the field. This podcast allows them to inspire and share their tools of the trade. It's a very well-designed concept.

    2. It would be great if the runner-ups were displayed somewhere. I haven't seen this information anywhere.

      Congratulations to Debbie and crew.

    2. I'm a bit surprised too. Where's the design part?

      It seems like more of a social media award now.

    2. I dont understand how this podcast won the award. It's just a podcast. Sure, its good, but where is the design???

    2. Design Matters is one of the easiest, inspiring, and provocative methods for learning about the world. What a way to share knowledge!

    2. Robust, thoughtful discussion about design is so often contained within the confines of our profession. This (free) podcast is an incredible resource, available to anyone with a curiosity about the ways our world is shaped by design.
