James: Welcome to UX Podcast. I’m James Royal-Lawson
Per: And I’m Per Axbom
James: We’ve been breaking down silos, boosting your confidence, and sharing knowledge since 2011.
Per: And doing our best to bring you a mix of content that balances technology, business and people, reaching listeners in every country around the world.
James: Back in 2011 we sounded a little bit like this…
[Clip of the first theme tune]
Per: and we hadn’t, for the first few episodes at least, learnt much about sound production
James: Then we sounded a little bit like this…
[Clip of the second theme tune]
Per: And got ourselves some decent microphones
James: These days we sound like this…
[Current theme tune]
Per: And have those fancy “Madonna headsets” and a producer.
James: Both me and Per are independent consultants – we’ve both been self-employed for more than a decade and have been “in the business” for over 20.
Per: Although you’d never guess that from our baby looks, full heads of hair and smooth complexions. [cough]
James: Usually an episode of UX podcast features a guest – an author, a speaker, or just simply someone who we think has knowledge that’s worth sharing with you.
Per: Sometimes we have what we call link shows where we discuss a couple of articles we’ve found and read during our digital travels.
James: On top of that we occasionally have topic shows that are dedicated entirely to one single specific topic.
Per: We used to do event shows – shorter interviews recorded live at conferences, but in recent years we’ve evolved those moments into full blown interview shows – with better sound!.
James: Another thing we’ve moved away from are sponsors. In recent years, you won’t hear sponsor slots or adverts on UX Podcast.
Per: We’re funded by [me Per and James] plus contributions that you provide – and many of those contributions take the form of volunteering to help us with transcripts and publishing.
James: Our team of listener-volunteers is fantastic and really does help make UX Podcast possible. So, run the bath, go for a run, cut the grass, sit back and close your eyes – however you listen to your podcasts – and enjoy the show.
Per: We hope you learn as much as we have over the years.
Per: Remember to keep moving
James: See you on the other side.
