I'm a huge fan of continuing education, and one of the ways I binge on information is through podcasts. Here's a list of 11 podcasts that I find not only educational but entertaining as well.

  • JS Party - From the folks at Changelog, this weekly, hour-ish podcast focusing on JavaScript features a rotating panel and format.
  • Front End Happy Hour - A bunch of developers drinking and talking about development. What could go wrong?
  • Developer Tea - This podcast is more about the human element of development. I recommend this to developers of all levels, but especially beginners.
  • FSJam Podcast - Fullstack Jamstack conversations with developers, library maintainers, and industry thought leaders.
  • 99% Invisible - It's not all dev-centric podcasts here. 99% Invisible peels back the curtain on the design of everyday things. The flag episode is a classic.
  • Full Stack Radio - Adam Wathan, creator of (among other things) Tailwind, hosts this podcast with a focus on all the things happening on the front end.
  • Hidden Brain - This fascinating podcast delves into why we do the things we do and how we can learn from that. It's honestly one of my favs.
  • React Podcast - It's about React. So...
  • ShopTalk Show - Chris Coyier (CSS-Tricks) and Dave Rupert (Paravel) host this quirky podcast (mostly) about frontend. This podcast was my first developer podcast ever and still one of my favorites.
  • Syntax - Hosted by Wes Bos and Scott Tolinski, I highly recommend this podcast if you are new to JavaScript. It's chock-full of tips and sick picks.
  • Freakonomics Radio - Again, a podcast about humans for humans. This one has a strong focus on Behavioral Economics, the cross-section of psychology and econ.
