We’re always talking about the future of design, the future of technology, the future of MAKING. In a world where high school students can 3D print and revolutionize food packaging, a world where astronauts can take bracelets up to space that feature earth-bound scents, how do we find the next ‘big’ thing? MakerGalaxy is a show that explores the crossroads of Design, Technology, and the Future of Making.

This week we have a special interview featuring Adam O’Hern and Josh Mings of the popular podcast EngineerVsDesigner interviewing Kyle Studstill of Makeway Magazine. MakeWay Magazine is a new publication that explores the current landscape of making, small business, and innovation. Josh and Adam talked with Kyle about everything from how MakeWay aims to help designers and makers, how crowdfunding works for new businesses from a holistic standpoint, as well as where he thinks the current maker revolution is going.

We’ll be discussing:

  • matrix + cheese hats?
  • what is MakeWay Magazine?
  • what does ‘making’ even mean these days?
  • artisanal innovation and crowdfunding
  • the ‘IKEA effect’
  • …and more!
