The Smithy Show

Examining the connections all around us.

A show that explores the fascinating connections between people, performance, business, life, and anything else that’s curious and deserves a deeper exploration. Interviews, conversations, debates, and more: with your host Joe Smith (unfortunately not a stage name... ).

A Summer Special. This episode features the incredibly talented designers Dhiraj Totwani and @JephtheFerdilus with a long form interview that goes into the philosophy of design, finding your own style, building your craft, and even the ethics of graphic design.
