Podcasts are an excellent way to keep up to date with technology in 2022 while on the road or exercising. This offers the opportunity to gain insight into the platforms and technologies other industry leaders are implementing and to hear stories and approaches from the designers and developers who are building the next generation of technology.
We are avid listeners of podcasts. We pop on different episodes while doing chores, going for a walk, running or driving, or relaxing…while “working”, we pop on an episode. Based on the top 10 podcasts our team recommends, we compiled this list for IT professionals (and technology nerds).
As technology evolves at a blistering pace, keeping up with the latest and most significant trends, tactics, and approaches can be difficult. Look at the list and find the cliff notes version of industry expertise. Looking for unique insights from technology leaders? Quick-witted developer stories? Design concepts that affect the user experience? Anything that can enhance your knowledge of the industry is fair game. Isn’t it?

“IRL” is one of the best tech-related podcasts, but none is as good as “IRL.” This is a Firefox podcast that focuses on topics related to privacy, technology, and new technology. There are enough episodes (about 30 minutes) to keep listeners engaged, and the topics are relevant to the everyday person.
Organizations adopt artificial intelligence at a rapid rate; therefore, leaders must understand AI use cases, best practices, and trends. This will facilitate leaders in formulating a successful AI strategy and implementation for their organization. The “AI Today Podcast” covers most of the topics listed above.
“The CyberWire” is a beautiful resource for staying informed about cybersecurity issues and threats. There is a perfect blend of being both highly technical and high-level, suitable for someone concerned about security but does not want to get buried in the weeds daily.
Tech entrepreneur Naval Ravikant hosts his podcast “Naval” to discuss lessons learned and observations about how the world is evolving. Philosophy is discussed efficiently. The majority of philosophy, as we commonly think of it, is impractical. His comments in this podcast are so simple and astute that it changes a person’s view of the world. Typically an episode lasts between two and three minutes.

“Darknet Diaries” focuses on technology and cybercrime, which may seem slightly darker. For a broader understanding of security, it is helpful to consider security from the bad guys’ perspective. The podcasts do not take up much time so you can listen to them between conference calls.
Another favorite podcast is “Akimbo” by Seth Godin. Seth is an expert in marketing-and, he deserves to be. He makes many points relevant to leadership and improving one’s performance across various business segments. His thought leadership is simply dynamite.
