On the Grid is a design podcast featuring Matt McInerney, Andy Mangold & Dan Auer. Every week the three of us call in for a conversation about a broad range of topics through the lens of design.

Episode 1: Replacing Your Eyes [mp3 link released on July 24, 2012]

We’re posting our pilot episode of On the Grid! We’ve been recording the show for a few weeks now, we’ve done tests that will probably never see the light of day, and we’re finally ready to launch episode one.

We plan on using the show to discuss design through recent events and news. Hopefully you’ll enjoy a mix of design conversation, joking side comments, and discussion of the issues that affect us as designers.
