Awesome list of Important Podcasts for software engineers

Awesome podcasts is a curated list of podcasts for software engineers.  The list includes a whole lot of sections – one for each programming language out there, generic software engineering, tools, etc.

Also, have a look at this blog post I did a while back.

Slashdot Asks: Your Favorite Podcasts? And Why?

Slashdot runs a thread on which podcasts people are listening to and why (the crowd is mostly technical, so expect a certain one-sidedness (yup, that’s a real word).

One that I’ve picked up from the comments is

If you want more ideas on what to subscribe to, have a look at this blog post I did a while ago.  It links to a couple of podcast lists.

A Curated List of Tech Podcasts

It’s been a few month since I reviewed my podcast subscriptions.  Driving over 150 kilometers every working day gives me plenty of time to readjust my tastes and preferences.  Just doesn’t leave me too much time to actually do something about it.

Podcasts are easy to subscribe to.  Once you find the ones you like.  Finding the ones you like takes forever though.  Here’s where WP Tavern’s post “Awesome Geek Podcasts: A Curated List of Tech Podcasts” comes in handy.  Cause it provides not one, but two lists of podcasts:

  1. The best WordPress podcasts ultimate list
  2. A curated list of Awesome Geek Podcasts.

And while I’m familiar with many on that list, there’s a tonne of those that I haven’t heard, or heard about.

Any other recommendations?

Foundation – new podcast by Kevin Rose

Kevin Rose, who you probably know as the founder of Digg and co-host of the popular podcast Diggnation, has started a new podcast – Foundation. In this one, he interviews famous and not so much founders of web services, entrepreneurs, and other creative people.  The show is free.  It’s also ad-free, but there is some sort of subscription for those who want to get it one week earlier.  The first episode is out and it’s a half an hour interview with Jack Dorsey – inventor of Twitter and co-founder of Square.  Watch it at Revision3 and subscribe.

Video games podcasts

I have to agree with on this one:

Podcasts are not very popular in Cyprus. It probably has a lot to do with the fact that there is no puplic transport to provide someone with a great opportunity to use any means possible to shut everything and everyone out while you are using it. Unfortunately this means missing out on some great videogame related podcasts out there.

All I can do from my side is to point to more video games podcasts.  I’ve mentioned earlier that Miro is the best application for watching online video that I ever came across.  Not only it makes downloading, watching, and organizing podcasts easy, but also it provides an excellent resource to find more content – Miro Guide.  You can browse most popular podcasts, newest ones, HD videos, and more.  As part of it, of course, you can browse by category.  For example, Video Games category lists a number of excellent shows, and Total Rad Show, which was recommend by OnThisIsland and of which I am a big fan, is also in that list.
