Eran Dror

Remake is a podcast about Design, Systems, and Society. And I'm Eran Dror, longtime product designer, and founder of Remake Labs. In each episode I interview someone who’s trying to change our lives for the better in some meaningful way, whether through a new product, new venture, or new way of looking at the world, and I try to understand how they came to it, what makes them tick, and what we all can learn from them. Besides Design and Design Sprints, we'll touch topics in Systems Thinking, AI Ethics and Safety, Social Innovation, Secular spirituality, and the future.
