Five great interviews per week. Jeff does an incredible amount of research for each interview and the effort shows. The show covers ever corner of software development but Jeff is most enthusiastic about the lower-level parts of the stack.
Adam and Jerod put on a very crisp interview with notable figures in open source. This show comes out once a week and is always valuable. The team has two more shows now, Go Time and Request for Commits. I have not gotten into Go Time yet but I really have enjoyed RFC.
Saron runs a great podcast that focuses on the parts of programming that can help newbies make the leap. Even though it is targeted at new programmers, it is valuable and interesting for everyone.
Chris and Dave run a show with a variety of formats and always great topics surrounding front-end development. It is chock-full of practical advice and opinions on this part of the dev stack.
This is a panel show with recurring hosts and guests that covers many interesting topics in Ruby and also tends to get into great discussions on the community aspect of development.
This show gets into some of the technical details of Ruby, Rails, and has a lot of insider goodies regarding the ongoing development of Rails. Derek and Sean put on a very fun tech and banter-driven show. Laila Winner has co-hosted it a few times, but she has a new podcast, The Laila and Brenda Show, which follows a similar format.
Scott brings in some amazing guests and does a great job of uncovering niche topics in computer programming and uncovering the most interesting parts. This show has a great backlog.
