621 - Shop Talk with Billy Baumann

Shop Talk is here so go get your drum and start banging because it's another classic episode with Mark and Billy. This week The Godfather of AID and your favorite podcaster pivot back and forth between the creative struggle and the mental struggle just waiting outside your doors. When you're cranking away at your desk you're bombarded with questions about the direction of your career, the direction of your latest piece, and the how that all relates to the direction of your bank account. Once you swivel out of your chair and join the rest of the world there is an entirely new set of questions to wrestle with regarding other people's dilemmas that will one day be knocking at your own door. Take a moment to collect yourself and make some sense of it all as Adventures In Design is here to help you make sense of at least a few of these troubling issues that are keeping you up at night. Antics sort of ensue.
