Recommended Podcasts for IT Professionals


PodcastsI regularly make reference on Twitter to the various Podcasts and Audio Shows that provide me with interesting listening on long car journeys or when I’m out walking. It’s amazing how much you can learn by regularly listening to Podcasts, which I find entertaining and inspiring in equal measure.

I’ve also written on Why You Should Listen To Podcasts for Personal Development.

Recommended Podcasts for IT Professionals

As I often get asked for recommendations for Podcast listening, here is a list of my recommended Podcasts for IT Professionals.

Last Updated: 17th July, 2015

Marketing Podcasts

Productivity Podcasts

  • The 5am Miracle – Dedicated to “dominating your day before Breakfast”, host Jeff Sanders offers up infectious energy and ideas that will help you achieve more.
  • AllThings Productivity Podcast – The AllThings team from Dundee, Scotland share insight into being productive and interviews with some productivity masters.
  • Beyond The To-Do List – Host Erik Fisher talks with people on all aspects of productivity, getting good work done and living a good life. Consistently my favourite (and most inspiring) listen.
  • The Getting Things Done (GTD) Podcast – The official Podcast of David Allen’s Getting Things Done (GTD), talking productivity, efficiency and personal development.

Personal Development Podcasts

Technology and Business Podcasts

And I’d be remiss if I didn’t give a plug to my own Podcast, TubbTalk – The Podcast for IT Consultants.

For those who asked about my Podcast client of choice, it’s currently DoggCatcher for Android.

Am I missing out on a Podcast or Audio Show that you think I’d enjoy listening to? Please do leave a comment below so I can check it out and possibly add it to my recommended Podcasts for IT Professionals list!
