What podcasts should I be listening to in 2019?

Conlin Durbin on January 08, 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 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 Dev.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

 

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

  • Syntax.fm
  • 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
  • egghead.io developer chats
  • Refactor Your Body (devlifts.io)
  • Swindled (not dev related)
  • Joe Rogan Experience (definitely not dev related, but entertaining at times)
 

These range from development to design/art. Some of these don't update anymore, but they have some archived episodes that are gems (like interviews with big names):

-The web ahead (fascinating subjects)
-Shop talk show
-Full stack radio
-Ctrl+click
-Command line hereos
-Developer tea
-This developer life
-Reply all (more about the Web than programming)

 

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 Resin.io (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...

 

Great overall tech/security podcast: twit.tv/shows/security-now

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

 

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

 

There are so many good ones out there below are the ones I love.

I have subscribed to so many so I will just shameless link the rest 😛

 

I really enjoy listening to these one.
