Is it really 12 years since I last posted about what’s in my podcast collection? Apparently so!

My current podcast app of choice on iOS is Pocket Casts. It works well, and it’s pretty cool that it was originally developed here in Adelaide!

Most of my podcast listening is now done on my morning walk before I start work (now that I work from home). That’s usually up to an hour walking. Previously I used to listen on the bus trip into the city (which was about an hour each way), so now with a bit less time I tend to be more selective about what I listen to for the “second half”.

I’ve roughly sorted the podcasts by how regularly I listen to episodes. This is mostly how useful or interesting I find the episodes, but may also be because the podcast doesn’t publish episodes that often. Links are to the RSS feeds for each podcast.

  • Daily Audio Bible”. You might say I listen to this religiously! It’s the first thing I put on when heading out for my walk. Episodes take from 20-30 mins, which usually means I have time to listen to something else before I get home.
  • RunAs Radio - Interesting IT topics hosted by Richard Campbell.
  • Windows Weekly - Weekly episodes with Leo, Paul and Mary Jo, that I don’t always get through and sometimes miss altogether, but often interesting.
  • The Unhandled Exception Podcast - A newer addition to my list. Some good shows on .NET. Listening to Dan Clarke’s interviews has inspired a few of our recent speakers for ADNUG (Kendra Havens and Simon Cropp).
  • .NET Rocks! - Carl and Richard. Usually an hour per episode, and if the topic isn’t interesting I’ll give it a miss.
  • no dogma podcast - Bryan Hogan (wonderful accent!) and some great .NET interviews recently.
  • Hanselminutes with Scott Hanselman - Scott covers a wide variety of software dev topics.
  • Dr. Karl Podcast - Always interesting science talk-back.
  • Herding Code - Episodes are sporadic, and even less often since the passing of K Scott Allen. But when they do come out they can be good.
  • Software Engineering Radio - the podcast for professional software developers - a wide variety of software topics.
  • SQL Down Under - Greg Low’s SQL podcast
  • Seeds Uniting Church - Good to catch up on sermons. Used to use this more often when I missed out when I was helping with kids’ church (aka Sunday School).
  • One Dev Minute - Selective listening to topics from Raymond Chen and Larry Osterman (whose blogs I’ve been following for ages). No new episodes since last year though.
  • The Idealcast with Gene Kim by IT Revolution. Some really interesting interviews, hosted by Gene Kim. Some shows are recaps of older conference talks. If you’re interested in DevOps, then can be interesting. Episodes can be quite long. I wish they’d didn’t break them down into shorter episodes.
  • Coding After Work Podcast - Not sure how I got onto this one, not publishing that often now, but a few of the earlier episodes had some interesting guests.
  • Weekly Dev Tips - From Steve Smith (@ardalis), has gone quiet and I think he’s stopped publishing?
  • A special mention should also go to Developer On Fire, which I listened to for the first few hundred episodes a few years back. It burned brightly for a while there. I gather Dave Rael wound it up after episode 452.

Finally, sometimes after listening to the latest Daily Audio Bible episode, I decide to “unplug” and just take in the sounds around me. It’s ok to not be plugged in all the time!
