It’s 2018 and I still read blogs (yes via RSS) and listen to podcasts (also in high speed mode sometimes).
As I’m pretty picky when it comes to podcasts, I decided to sum up a short list of what I regularly listen to. First, the content should be interesting and I like good audio quality. I can not for the love of my life listen to stuff that sounds like it was recorded over a landline. Last but not least I don’t like ads ;)
Bonus points for show notes and Topicmarks which are incredibly helpful when listening to 4 hour podcasts.
Without further ado, let’s dive in.
Stumbled over FLOSS Weekly a while back and I like the content around Free Libre Open Source Software. Get started with the evolution of community.
Wonderful Design Podcast around the invisible things of Design – Start with Guerilla Public Service Delux
The English version of Freakshow – I like to listen in to the thoughts and ramblings of Marco, Casey, and John.
Legacy code is everywhere – This podcast deals with different topics around it and I suggest to start with the episode about Technical Wealth
Guy Raz (also host of TED Radio Hour) dives into how people built companies or products. Best start with Yvon Chouinard talking about how he started Patagonia.
Watching TED Talks is nice but having a few excerpts of Talks mixed with discussions with the speakers itself is a very nice mix.
I read a few books of Tim and also like his blog. Sometimes more serious topics, sometimes rapid Q/A’s with his Interview Partners.
The co-hosts around Tim discuss all new and fancy topics out of the tech scene. They run a show every other week and land usually on the 4 hour mark :) If that’s too much for you this podcast has fantastic show notes and great chapter marks so if you just want to listen in to a few parts it makes it very very easy.
