Podcasts are a great option for staying on top of what’s trending (or not so much!), new design perspectives, and to get inside the crazy-interesting minds of admired innovators and designers.

Podcasts allow you to make the most of idle time by listening while commuting, traveling, carpooling, or even cooking dinner. There are a lot of podcasts out there, and choosing the best one to commit your time to can be a daunting task. So, I put together a list of my top 10 can’t-miss podcasts on innovation and design, plus one that is not specifically innovation-related but gets your mind turning. You can thank me later.

New and notable innovation podcast picks:

1. Passive Income for Designers – Dustin Lee
This is a powerful idea that designers need multiple income streams, especially one that does not require you to bill by the hour. Dustin Lee’s perspective on ways to do this are unique and specifically appealing to designers.

2. The Product Startup – Filip Valica
The idea of DIY product development is really good for creating truly innovative products that have not been done before. The risk is you have to constantly reinvent the wheel learning things that are not essential to exploring your core innovation. Use this podcast and host Filip Valica as your guide, but don’t be afraid reach out and pay for expertise to speed up the process. Make sure to follow
