What Members Are Saying
“I joined the User Defenders community hoping to expand my knowledge and skills in UX Design, but I got so much more. A supportive community, thoughtful podcasts tackling subjects like imposter syndrome (and dealing with your inner critic), and a fearless leader in Jason Ogle. I can’t speak highly enough of this group, and how it has helped me grow as a designer.”
– Muriel Pierre-Louis (UX Designer)
"I have listened to the User Defenders podcast for a few years. The superhero twist is fun, but the conversations are deep, meaningful, and most of all helpful. Developing empathy and improving understanding through personal journeys is much easier (and more effective) when you believe you are connected to a tribe who are all trying to do the same. Jason brilliantly recognized that we all have a story. UD community has sparked meaningful dialog and participation. In just a few weeks, I am certain that I have learned valuable insights from others, and I have helped others, and this is a community where others can find the same."
– Charles Hall (Sr. UX Architect)
"Jason Ogle brings his inspiring podcast to life with the addition of the User Defenders community. A wonderful, insightful, and must-have resource for anyone interested in UX. This is one of the best communities out there!”
– Erin Wong (UX Designer)
"I’m humbled to be part of the User Defenders community because we are able to share our knowledge of how we can help make usable products and services. Being part of this community is inspiring me to continue my push for researching and discovering ways to empathize with people. In the end, it’s not about the aesthetic of the products and services as much as it is about the benefit it brings to other humans.”
– Christopher Tumaghap (UX Designer)
Why This Community is Worth Paying for
There's a few reasons I'm asking for only $9.99/mo (or $99/yr) to be a part of this very special, one-of-a-kind UX & personal-growth-focused community:
Skin in the game. Members who pay for this amazing community unsurprisingly are the ones who engage and get the most out of it
Help offset the cost of this powerful platform
Help your host and friend, Jason Ogle continue to grow User Defenders: Podcast (which requires a growing paid staff and many other hard costs) in order to continue bringing you the best, most inspiring UX podcast content in the universe!
