Podcasts make it possible to stay up to date with the design industry’s pulse without having to actually “allocate” time for it, as you would if you joined a coaching class or a webinar. Podcasts discuss a range of interior design topics from the design process to matters related to design business such as pricing, legal matters, credentialing, networking, trade shows, CEUs, and marketing.

Open the app, and using the search function, select and subscribe to podcasts that you are curious about. New episodes will automatically appear on the app. Alternatively, you can visit the podcast’s website from a computer and stream it directly from the page. Itunes, Stitcher, iHeartRadio, and Spotify are some platforms that you can use to listen to podcasts.
