The Stack Overflow

The Stack Overflow podcast is more than 400 episodes and a dozen years deep into its run and is still as fresh and fun as episode 1. Long-time listeners will tell you it is a can’t-miss podcast for anyone interested in the beauty and burdens faced by software developers.

There are tons of project-based educational ‘follow-along’ Youtube channels and podcasts for developers looking to get their fill of content, CoRecursive dives deeper to expose “The stories and people behind the code”. The interviews and discussions can be light and entertaining but more often than not provide real substance to those interested in big and profound foundational questions.


Software Engineering Radio

After more than 500 episodes SER’s objective remains the same “Software Engineering Radio is a podcast targeted at professional software developers. The goal is to be a lasting educational resource, not a newscast.” New episodes drop three to four times per month.

With his first podcast airing way back in 2006, Scott Hanselman is the OG originator of programming-focused content.

Scott covers topics including technology, culture, gadgets, and code.


Command Line Heroes

Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify

Sometimes show descriptions or bios are so well written I just step aside and say “check it out” –  Command Line Heroes is a perfect example. 

“Hear the epic true tales of how developers, programmers, hackers, geeks, and open source rebels are revolutionizing the technology landscape. Command Line Heroes is an award-winning podcast hosted by Saron Yitbarek and produced by Red Hat.”


Developer Tea

If you’re looking for a quick 15-minute hit of podcast perfection tune in for a piping hot cup of Developer Tea. Jonathan Cutre started the podcast back in 2015 with the goal of creating content that could be enjoyed during a typical tea break. Cutre is the co-founder of Spec, a developer at Clearbit, and a trained pilot. Jonathan has managed to pack his petite podcasts full of the sort of content he says is aimed at helping “developers find their ultimate purpose and excel at their work in order to positively impact the people around them.”
