I’m a full believer in the term “Automobile University” that was coined by the well-known motivational speaker Zig Ziglar – the idea being that time spent in traffic can and should be used to educate oneself on a variety of subjects. As such, I have quite a few technology / IT podcasts that I subscribe to and I make sure that my audio player always has plenty of interesting episodes available in the queue.
I already shared the list below with plenty of friends and co-workers who know that I listen to a variety of podcasts so I figured I should probably just create a blog post with this information for future reference.
At the time of this post all podcasts mentioned below appear to still be active – kudos and many thanks to all these authors who keep creating solid technical content for all of us to enjoy.
In the list below I link to the actual podcast sites. If you want to actually subscribe to them you should be able to find them in the iTunes store or wherever else you grab your podcasts from. If you know of any other ones in the various categories listed below please add them in the comments.
Databases (SQL Server)
Infrastructure, Networking, Enterprise Tech
I should also mention the amazing list of shows / podcasts from the TWiT network. Leo Laporte and his amazing crew create some awesome content – way faster than I can possibly consume it. You’ll probably find some interesting topics there as well.
