Episode Summary

Recently, I had the great pleasure of talking with Mike Monteiro, co-founder of Mule Design and author of the best-selling books Ruined by Design and Design is a Job.

His fantastic audiobooks (which he actually narrated) lit a fire under me to explore how we can create an ethical practice when it comes to content design and UX writing.

Talking to Mike was a fantastic experience that helped me realize that, even though I added a chapter about ethical user experience to our UX Writing Academy, there are still more actions we can take if we want to have a positive impact on the people around the world who use our products.
