For any junior or senior dev looking a podcast to listen while driving or coding here are my top 10 dev podcast take with a grand of salt this is my personal top 10.

Pro-tip : listen to 1.5 to 2 speed, so you can listen to more in less time.

[1] Syntax.FM with Wes Bos & Scott Tolinski
Syntax FM is my number one 1⃣

Host by Wes and Scott they are two Full Stack JavaScript Developers, teachers, Creators, and much more, they make every topic so fun and ease to understand.

[2] Darknet dairies with Jack Rhysider.

True stories from the dark side of the Internet

Darknet is one of the best story tell podcast out there. Every episode is base in a real life history and go deep in the details about the hack and the why, how it just one of the best Podcast have listened all the episodes 2 times it just so awesome.

[3] Codenewbie

stories from people on their coding journey

Codenewbie Sharon talk to devs and get how they start in tech they best advice for a Jr dev. And get how the industry doing and where is moving towards.

[4] Full Stack Radio

A podcast for developers interested in building great software products

Full Stack Radio is hosted by one of the best designer and creator of Tailwind CSS.

The full view of an application.

[5] Front 🔚 Happy Hour

A podcast featuring a panel of Software Engineers from Netflix, Twitch, & Atlassian talking over drinks about all things Front End development.

Frontend Happy Hour I love the dynamic of take a shot every time you said the key word of the episode.
And you get a wonderful high level view of the topic, and you can see the different point of view of the Sr. Dev at Netflix and other big company's.

[6] Coding blogs

the goals of the Coding Blocks podcast is to introduce a number of these topics to the audience so they can learn during
their commute or while cutting the grass. We will cover topics such as best programming practices, design patterns, coding for
performance, object-oriented coding, database design and implementation, tips, tricks and a lot of other things

One of those podcast that you can listen and be lost most of the time of all the technical terms but at the end you would have a better idea or at least an overview of the meaning of the terms these guys are fantastic at entertaining and explaining the different topics.
Hosted by Allen Underwood - Joe Zack -Michael Outlaw, I have the opportunity of meeting Joe Zack in a local meetup in Daytona Beach a couple of years ago.

[7] Base. Cs

Vaidehi Joshi turn her base.cs blog series into an awesome podcast
For self-thought developers this is a must-listen because it helps you understand the basic of computer science and the illustration in the series is on point.
It helps you get a better understanding of the different data structures, algorithm and other CS fundamentals.

[8] Malicious life

tells the unknown stories of the history of cybersecurity, with comments and reflections by real hackers, security experts, journalists, and politicians
This is another one that is close enough to Darknet Diaries but with a different point of view .

[9] TechJR

Lee Warrick and Edwin Otero explore what it's like to break into the Tech field as junior developers as well as how to stay up-to-date on new technology.

Get an overview from the hosts on how to break into the field and bring other point of view from experts in the field to give very important advice for those that are trying to get in to the industry.

[10] Software engineering Daily

Software Engineering Daily features daily interviews about technical software topics.
I think this one should go in the top 5, but I have a lot to choose from so 9 it is.

I understood 5% of every episode, but I found the personalities compelling and my understanding of software improved gradually every time I listened. Oftentimes I would listen to an episode during my work commute, and learn more from that episode than I would at work.
This is one of the podcast that you can listen if you get a better view of all the information that is out there in and the scope of software engineering.
