The BOM : Episode 16: The Overarching Theme


Today on the show, we’re looking back over the last four months of The BOM podcast and revisiting some of our favorite moments. From Jayy Moss’s dedication to accessibility and representation in the maker community on through Kate McAndrew’s focus on building and investing in the brightest teams and on to Cory Grosser’s power to evoke a feeling through the design of a space… Today I’ll guide you through our first 15 episodes, so that if you’re new to the show, you can find the perfect place to start, or if you just want a refresh, you can revisit some of the inspirational and fascinating conversations we’ve had.

A theme that comes up again and again is the importance of open source and idea sharing. When we work together and share our methods, we learn from each other, expand on each other’s work, and become capable of bigger, bolder things.

All of our guests are creators, innovators, and designers with unique perspectives that can make us better at what we do, and in turn make the world a better place.
