Podcasts To Inspire You About Web Development & Entrepreneurship

This article was originally published at codebushi.com

Here's a list of my favorite podcasts and episodes that I have discovered over the years. Most of these are interviews with various makers and founders because I find it very inspiring to hear their background stories. It's also a great way to get ideas for your own web development projects!

If you have a favorite podcast or episode from a podcast, share it below! I'm always looking for new things to listen to.

Indie Hackers

Probably my favorite podcast right now, hosted by Courtland Allen. So many great interviews with developers and online business owners! It's super interesting to discover how they started their online projects and the mistakes they've made along the way.

Favorite Episodes


Syntax.fm

Hosted by Wes Bos and Scott Tolinski, Syntax is more focused on the current tech in web development. Definitely follow if you're into the current trends of JavaScript, CSS, and HTML. They also have on some awesome guests from time to time.

Favorite Episodes


Yo! Podcast

I just discovered the Yo! Podcast a few weeks ago but it quickly became a favorite of mine. Hosted by Rob Hope, he interviews some amazing people and mixes it up with rapid fire question rounds to keep things fun and interesting.

Favorite Episodes


The Side Hustle Show

Hosted by Nick Loper, this podcast is more about various side hustles which range from house rentals to flea market retail arbitrage. I've picked out some of my favorites that relate to web development below.

Favorite Episodes


Mixergy

I like this podcast because the host, Andrew Warner, always has high energy and is not afraid to ask his guests the hard questions. There are a ton of episodes and he interviews so many different entrepreneurs, there's bound to be something that interests you.

Favorite Episodes


Without Fail

The quality of this podcast is top notch, which isn't a surprise since the host is Alex Blumberg of Gimlet Media. He also interviews a wide variety of people, but I've picked out my favorites related to the tech industry.

Favorite Episodes


StartUp

This podcast seems to be kinda scatter-brained, there are a lot of episodes which are just replays from other shows. I don't follow it too closely, but I do have two favorite episodes below.

I liked Indie Hackers when I had the feeling it was about hackers who want to be entrepreneurs. Nowadays I have the feeling it's about a bunch of "hustlers" who want to make money with software "without learning to code".

But I have to admit, the links you posted seem interesting :)

It's definitely a mixed bag, but there are some really talented coders and developers on there.

This is a great list -- thanks for sharing. That episode of Indie Hackers with Danielle Baskin is a favorite of mine, too. Seeing where so many fun, weird ideas go is a great part of being a builder.

I'm at the beginning of my coding journey and Code Newbie podcast is very helpful for me. I can recommend it to everyone, not only for the beginners as it can give you a new perspective for many things you already know.
