About Ryan Starr
Ryan's co-workers would tell you he likes to talk. A lot. So it only made sense when he wanted to take his love of conversation one step further and create a podcast. Now he speaks with designers, illustrators and photographers about their lives and careers. Surprisingly, he lets his guests do (most of) the talking.
Not surprisingly, his co-workers do not subscribe.
