The Reflex Blue Show, graphic design podcast, season 4 picks

With Nate’s announcement this week that he is stepping down from co-hosting The Reflex Blue Show, the change in calendar to 2012, and the fact we have already taken a couple months off from recording, I felt it was only appropriate to declare this as the end of Season 4. This of course brings us to announce our personal favorites from what was actually a pretty eventful year of recordings. You can view our picks for all four seasons here.

I will greatly miss having Nate on every show, as there are only a number of recordings I did without him over the past six years, and I know the show would not be what it is without all that he has done. Without Nate, I wouldn’t be recording a show at all, as it was him and Tom that decided this would be a fun adventure, and somehow invited me to be a guest for that first episode of the Be A Design Cast. It’s been a great six years or so of podcasting, and I thank Nate for a lot of that. I wish him the best in his next endevour.

As for my next endevour? Season 5 of The Reflex Blue Show kicks off next week. I’ll see you then, and thank you for listening.

As for our picks, we both went with the shows we had the most fun recording.

Donovan’s Pick: Episode 6 (#76)

One of my favorite things with The Reflex Blue Show is seeing where the conversation leads us. I went in wanting to talk about Joey’s Corner – we ended up talking about postage stamps – and I had a blast.

Nate’s Pick: Episode 7 (#77)

We got up to some bid’ness with this throbbing firecracker of a man, who blurs, bends and twists the line between art and design so much and so well you’ll forget it existed in the first place. Bonus: Lots of swearing!
