It's 2020, the software landscape is always coming up with new media, and at the same time others suffer degrading quality.

What are your favorite shows right now and going forward?

I'll start the discussion by plugging our show which is now 9 episodes in to season 1....

Find elsewhere...

Looking forward to more suggestions from the thread!

Where ever I listen to podcasts.... Dev.to is my audio and aggregator.

Btw, is there a way to search across all podcasts on the mobile app? Search when in podcasts seems to be a search all of dev.to.
Also is there a feed only for podcast you are subscribed too?

@ben has it been successful? How do you judge success? Number of listens growing with each new episode?

Collapse

Ben Halpern Author

Yup, listenership is growing and that's important to look at, but also anecdotal feedback has been super positive and mostly we're happy with how initial quality has turned out, but also how things have improved over as we have continued to record new episodes.

Syntax by Wes Bos and Scott Tolinski is the first dev podcast I listened to and it is still my favorite after 3 years. The episodes are funny and relax and packed with good stuffs related to web dev. Since they are both course instructors and have the equipment, the podcast has good sound quality, which to me, is important.

I still listen to them every now and again, but their React bias is getting a little tough to stay interested in sometimes! Still love them though.

what do you mean by react bias? It never stood out to me, but then again I'm a React developer πŸ˜‹

Thread Thread

Matt Waler

They almost exclusively talk about the React portion of Web Development today because it is what they work in most often. This is totally acceptable, but I think they miss out on exploring a lot of great new tools and frameworks because they are too comfortable in React.

That's a really good point. It would actually be helpful for them to explore other libraries and frameworks

After not listening to podcasts for a while, I've recently got back into it. Git Cute and the Ladybug Podcast are two that I've been listening too, back to back, in the past two weeks. Lots of good advice about coding and a career as a developer.

I'm a #dotnet guy so ".NET Rocks" is one of my favorites: dotnetrocks.com/

Then there is "Hanselminutes" by the awesome Scott Hanselman: hanselminutes.com/ I highly recommend it.

Another one of my favorite podcasts is the "Ladybug Podcast". Great hosts and cool topics: ladybug.dev

The "Legacy Code Rocks" show is also very cool. legacycode.rocks/

And DevDiscuss of course. But that's really obvious. ;-)

It's not pure coding, but very tech related:

Command line Heroes with the amazing raconteur Saron Yitbarek . I can't get enough of this podcast! Short episodes packed with a lot of geek stuff.

On the metal by Oxide Computer. Discovered it because I follow the incredibly inspiring Jess Frazelle on Twitter. They have a lot of really interesting episodes where they talk to outstanding guests from various IT domains but always related to hardware.

I really enjoy Syntax (syntax.fm) and Under the Radar (relay.fm/radar). Funny thing: both focus on tech stacks that I'm not actively working in! I think I use coding podcasts for exposure to new tech, versus learning more about tech I'm already working in.

I regularly listen to:

  1. Software Engineering Daily
  2. Serverless Chats
  3. Frontend Happy Hour
  4. AWS Podcast
  5. React Podcast

The others I subscribe to but only get to every blue moon:

  1. Code Newbie
  2. Developer Tea
  3. Coding Blocks
  4. Base.cs
  5. Command Line Heroes
  6. egghead.io developer chats
  7. Full Stack Radio
  8. Indie Hackers (I count this sometimes as code for the eps on developers)

Normally the less regular ones I'll listen to if I see an episode come out that catches my eye but to be completely honest, just trying to keep up with SED with Jeff five times a week for an hour episode @ 1.5x speed is super tough.

An hour of podcasts a day for me is a lot and I normally only get to it if I am being good and exercising and managed to get 1.5 to 2 in. My last company also told me to layoff the tech podcasts all the time too and listen to what else the world has to over (ha)!

Full disclosure - didn't know about DevDiscuss but will sub!

I enjoyed the few episodes of Dev Discuss I have heard so far. Just subscribed.

The ones I listen to without fail:

tech adjacent but absolutely worth a listen

I’m from Brazil and I never listened devs podcast in English, but there are many devs podcasts in portuguese and I used to listen the Hipster.tech’s podcast. It’s interesting because the talks just not programmer languages or new technologies, but about skills human of development ecosystem, etc...

Plugging mine...Maintainable Software Podcast which I just published Episode #60 this week (where I was the guest).

play pause Maintainable

You can follow on Dev.to at dev.to/maintainable

On Maintainable, I interview people who have helped teams work through problems often associated with technical debt and legacy code vs getting nerdy about shiny new technology.

Here are a few to get started with:

Hope you'll give it a listen!
