By StrangeWork.com: I’m addicted to podcasts, there I said it. Admission is the first step right? Right! For those of you not familiar with podcasts, here is a quick explanation.
Wikipedia definition: A podcast is a digital media file, or a series of such files, that is distributed over the Internet using syndication feeds for playback on portable media players and personal computers.
My definition: A podcast is a downloadable online radio show.
Podcasts are a great way to stay current on any topic your interested in. Of course I only listen to technology related podcasts, but podcasts exist for just about any topic.
Below is a list of my favorite technology related podcasts:
1. TWiT Network – Founded by the former host of TechTV’s The Screen Savers Leo Laporte, This Week in Tech (TWiT for short) is the leading technology podcasting network in the world. TWiT offers an abundance of technology netcasts including This Week in Tech, The Tech Guy, net@nite, and many more!
2. Cranky Geeks – Hosted by John C. Dvorak, Cranky Geeks is a weekly video podcast focusing on the top tech news. Dvorak is joined by many different leading innovators in the tech industry each episode.
Mini Podcasts – I classify the next three podcasts as mini podcasts because their run time is typically under 5 minutes per episode.
3. TeXtra – Hosted by Natali Del Conte, TeXtra is a technology news video podcast. The episodes are short and sweet, yet still manage to nail the top tech news headlines each episode.
4. GeekBrief.TV – A technology news and gadget review video podcast hosted by Cali Lewis. The show boasts they are “fast, fun, fresh and flirty”, and that is exactly what it is! Very enjoyable!
5. WebbAlert – Hosted by G4’s Morgan Webb, WebbAlert is the newcomer on the scene. Just a few weeks old, WebbAlert has already made a big impact on the video podcast scene. Morgan brings the humor and charm were all used to seeing and delivers a great technology headline video podcast.
It’s always good to stay current with technology news and podcasts are the best way to do that! If you haven’t listened to any of these shows give them a shot. You won’t be disappointed.
