8 great software & tech podcasts 2023

Podcasts come and go. Time and energy to listen to them also. And what a wonderful innovation they are, especially when you are learning or working in a field like software and tech.

Millions of developers means the complexity of the industry, business, culture, news, and let's not forget... the technology itself, is seemingly endless.

All you must ask is "What do I need to learn today?" and the answer will reveal itself quickly with a few keystrokes. Yet, with countless options and podcasters talking about their perspective on everything from AI to apple pie, how will you narrow it down?

To help with that, today we're sharing the AppMap team's favorite podcasts. Enjoy, and let us know what you're listening to!

Love airhacks, had great conversations with Adam a couple of months back. I would also add co-recursive to this category. It's got some fantastic stories.
