Show Notes & Links
Presented by CacheFly
Stuart is an event coordinator and designer living in his hometown of Portland, Oregon. He attended school at Portland Community College and found himself in a J.O.B. job in the fall.
Stuart is interested in anything design related, from graphic, to industrial, interaction to information. He highly recommends the show On The Grid. He wants to travel more after having spent a collective year in Southeast Asia.
One of the best years of Stuart's life was when he was in 6th grade. This formative year gave him some of the best friends he still has today and helped him become a confident and independent human.
When Stuart got his first iPhone in the fall of 2012, he discovered The Frequency in the podcasts app, which brought him to the rest of the shows on 5by5. He really liked the concept of having show titles suggested by the Jackals, he has a few suggestions that made it into the show.
Favorite active show - B2W, On The Grid
Favorite retired show - Capital, Hypercritical
Favorite not on 5by5 - Roderick on the Line
Other great podcasts: Accidental Tech Podcast, Savage Lovecast, On Being, The Heart, Here Be Monsters, This is Actually Happening, The Talk Show
Stuart listens to a lot of Podcasts (currently subscribed to 72). In fact, it's his main form of entertainment. In the summer he played a lot of video games, but fell out of it in the fall.
He reads Bon Appetit, Wired, Elle Decor, and Kinfolk.
