Bézier

By Zach Grosser
Bézier is a design interview podcast amplifying voices in our creative communities that don’t already have large platforms and aren’t working at the big 5 tech companies. We focus on finding guests from all over the world and representative of as many of us as possible—not your average podcast guests!
