My commute means I’m in my car for a good 2 hours a day when I’m in the office, making it an ideal time to catch up on some podcasts. I find that they are ideal for the journey to work as they provide a good transition between home and the office. Sound quality on all of these is great, though with some of the shows where an interview is conducted via Skype or similar the interviewee’s volume could do with raising a touch. I’ve now got a solid few feeds which throw up enough to keep me occupied.
Paul Boag from Headscape produces a pretty regular podcast aimed at the beginner developer and managers. Don’t let this put out off if you don’t count yourself as either of these as Paul covers a wide range of topics and there will generally be something to pique your interest.
The only one I don’t listen to on the move as it’s a video. Patrick Norton and Robert Heron cover all things gadetry from HD tvs to Vista to digital French rabbits. I’m constantly amazed by the knowledge displayed by these two.
A great series of interviews from Brian Oberkirch with some of the web luminaries such as Ryan Carson, Jason Fried and Jeff Veen to note a few recent ones.
Live from the 101
Bryan Veloso of Avalonstar and Dan Rubin of Superfluous Banter team up to deliver a great podcast. This normally sounds a lot like a chat over a cup of coffee between two mates which makes it fantastic listening.
The Web 2.0 Show
Don't let the title of this one put you off, it was named way before the whole O’Reilly thing. Pretty irregular but a good listen as they have a good interview each episode.
The lovely people over at Carson post their interviews as audio files as well as a full transcript. Again great interviews with people like Dan Cederholm of Simplebits and Kevin Rose of Digg.
What’s New Now
From the same stable as dl.tv this is a general round-up of all recent technology news
What’s good about all these are that the personalities of the interviewers really comes across in the audio format, meaning that even if all of them talked to the same person it would result in quite different discussions.
