What podcasts should I be listening to in 2019?

Hey DEV-ers! I really got into podcasts last year and I am looking for more to check out. What podcasts are you currently digging? What should I check out?

Preaching to the choir here maybe, but I love Syntax by Wes Bos and Scott Tolinski. I'm also interested to see what other suggestions come up in this thread! I'm always looking for a new podcast to add to the rotation. A couple of other favorites:

-Frontend Happy Hour
-Code Newbie
-Command Line Heroes
-The Changelog

Great list! I listen to a lot of The Bikeshed - based on your interests you might like that one!

I'll go ahead and list my weekly lineup in order of "most listened" to "least listened":

  • Software Engineering Daily
  • Darknet Diaries (not dev related)
  • Indie Hackers
  • JS Party

The remaining are on retainer in case a good episode pops up, like a good interview or hot topic:

  • React Podcast
  • Changelog
  • Google Cloud Platform Podcast
  • developer chats
  • Refactor Your Body (
  • Swindled (not dev related)
  • Joe Rogan Experience (definitely not dev related, but entertaining at times)

I had a huge collection that I'm listening on a daily basis but specifically for software development & soft skills it's this.

1) Software Engineering Daily - which I was exposed to due to 1 of the episode.
2) The Jordan Harbinger Show - networking & soft skills
3) Master of Scale - Has some awesome interviews on technology & startups. Love the episode for Marissa Mayer that talks about Google's Associate Product Manager program
4) Talk Python To Me - Python related news, trends and technology

Hey y'all!

Weekly, I listen to Developer Tea, How I Built This w/ Guy Raz, Darknet Diaries, Does Not Compute, Dads in Dev, The Pitch, a16z, Distributed, Re-Work, Swift by Sundel and Modern CTO. I just launched a podcast of my own called Code Story (, that might be of interest to everyone. Please let me know what you think!

I'm finding that little of my podcast listening is dev-focused. Closest I can think of is the IOT Podcast, which has some industry-pointed talk (not my industry, tho) but is mostly consumer-focused. It's where I learned about (now balena), which is a great idea not really where I am playing now.

I stack up Developer Tea episodes, but then delete them in bulk...

We've just launched a podcast where we talk to software devs about what technologies they're currently excited about and the tools they're building. I hope you'll enjoy it → Semaphore Uncut.

Hanselminutes - Scott Hanselman from Microsoft but the podcast is rarely about that, it's always fascinating.
Causeascene - interviews with marginalized people in tech.
Inquiring Minds - science and politics. Sometimes about AI and software but always something to think about.
The Bike Shed - nominally about Ruby, but a lot about architecture, project management, open source and leadership

Great overall tech/security podcast:

It is the main way I keep up with security news.
