The Top 10 Most Promising WordPress Podcasts for 2019

Being an avid WordPress user is just the beginning. After all, there is always breaking news, updates, trending designs, coding techniques, tools, and more to learn about.

But in between work and play, how are you supposed to keep up without making a huge time commitment?

The answer is WordPress podcasts.

Introduced on iTunes in 2005, podcasts have come a long way. In fact, there are currently over 700,000 podcasts and 29 million episodes for people to listen to; and those numbers continue to rise.

People love listening to podcasts because they offer the flexibility to do other things while listening to something they’re interested in.

And when it comes to WordPress podcasts, there’s something for developers, designers, and users alike. But just because podcasts give you an easier way to keep up with the WordPress world doesn’t mean you automatically know which ones to tune into.

That’s why we’re here to help you out. We’ve rounded up the top 10 most promising WordPress podcasts for 2019 so you can narrow down your search, find a podcast that suits your needs, and start listening right away.
