Android Development Podcastsโ€Šโ€”โ€Š7 Options to Choose From

Android development podcasts to help you stay up to date

Originally published at https://goobar.io on July 9, 2019.

Iโ€™ve had a number of questions lately about which podcasts Iโ€™ve been listening to, and where to find them, so I thought Iโ€™d share a small list of relevant Android development podcasts for you to check out.

tl;drโ€Šโ€”โ€Š7 Android Development Podcasts


Fragmented

Fragmented Podcast

This has been my go-to Android development podcast for a long time. Donn Felker and Kaushik Gopal do a terrific job of putting out consistently great episodes on all manner of Android-related topics. They generally sit down with other Android developers to discuss tools, libraries, patterns, etc.; all relevant to the world of Android development.

Android Developers Backstage

Android Developers Backstage Podcast

This podcast comes straight out of the Googlersโ€™ mouths as itโ€™s hosted by Chet Haase and Tor Norbye from the Android teams at Google.

I enjoy this podcast because it generally offers deep dives into Android topics usually including guests that actually work on the tools/libraries. Because of this, I think it offers a level of insight thatโ€™s difficult to replicate elsewhere.

Talking Kotlin

Talking Kotlin Podcast

Talking Kotlin with Hadi Hariri is a wonderful resource if youโ€™re wanting to learn more about Kotlin specifically. It covers everything from the world of Kotlin include Kotlin on Android, Kotlin Multiplatform, KotlinConf, etc.

The Context

The Context Podcast

The Context is another community-driven Android development podcast hosted by the trio of Artem Zinnatullin, Hannes Dorfmann, and Artur Dryomov.

This is another great option if you are wanting to hear what other developers are working on and thinking about in the world of Android.


Bonus Android Development Podcasts

I also want to include a few other podcasts that might be worth checking out.

Android Leaks Podcastโ€Šโ€”โ€Ša French Android development podcast that I recently came across. I donโ€™t speak French, so I donโ€™t really know a whole lot about it but itโ€™s out there.

Andro idiots Podcastโ€Šโ€”โ€ŠThis is a new one which someone pointed out to me recently. Itโ€™s pretty new, but has a nice backlog of episodes going and covers a variety of Android topics.

droidkast.LIVEโ€Šโ€”โ€ŠAntonio Levia has a small backlog of episodes consisting of interviews with other Android developers which culminate in a smaller learning presentation at the end.


Where to Listen?

For those using Android devices, I highly recommend Pocket Casts as a podcast app. Iโ€™ve been using it for years to listen to Android development podcasts (really all of my podcasts) and have been extremely happy with it.

As an alternative, Iโ€™ve used Google Play Music for podcasts in the past which does a pretty good job as well.

I havenโ€™t been overly impressed so far with the Google Podcasts app, but itโ€™s out there as well and might be getting more attention from Google right now than Google Play Musicโ€™s podcast support.

Other Useful Resources

I love to meet/talk/discuss and help where I can. If you want to chat or ask a question you can follow me on Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and Facebook.
