Quarterly Design System and Frontend Podcast Roundup – Q1/22

Quarterly Design System and Frontend Podcast Roundup – Q1/22

#tldr Read our roundup of podcasts released in the first quarter of 2022. Everything related to Design Systems, Frontend development and headless CMS / Jamstack.

I’m listening to quite a collection of podcasts regularly, as I just love to learn about new stuff… and what others are building. And sometime at the end of last year I decided to favorite all those episodes that were really interesting to me. So this will be the obvious bias here… 😅
But maybe this turns out to be useful for others, let me know!

Podcast themes include: Design Systems, Frontend, UI, React, headless CMS, Jamstack

And I’ve added everything I starred in April so far, too… for good measure 😉

Podcasts featured:

This also means (at least for me) that PodRocket takes the crown for most listened podcast of the quarter… and by quite the margin, too! 🚀
