Recently, a fellow developer asked what podcasts I listen to on a weekly basis. Here is my list of podcasts I listen to every week.

Podcast resources

Over the years, I've collected a lot of podcasts about programming, marketing, general business, and passive income. These podcasts have stuck with me over the years.

When do I find the time to listen? During the commute back and forth to work, while working out on the treadmill for an hour, or during lunch at my desk or walking during lunch.

Most podcasts are between 20 minutes and 90 minutes. It depends on the topic, but you can pick and choose which ones to listen to based on your activity length.

Current, I have so many that I'm behind on listening to most of them.

However, I am always on the lookout for great podcasts.

.NET Podcasts

.NET Rocks
Richard Campbell and Carl Franklin have been around for a long time (they passed their 1000th podcast) and continue to "rock" .NET with their awesome podcast.

Hanselminutes
Scott Hanselman's podcast is one I listen to a lot. He discusses general technologies and .NET topics with other fantastic guests on his show.

Herding Code
I look at Herding Code as a group of guys around a campfire talking about .NET (geeky, I know). :-) The Herding Code podcast is a great podcast with a veteran list of coders talking about various technologies. The list includes Jon Galloway, K. Scott Allen, Kevin Dente, and Scott Koon.

General Podcasts

CloudCast
As if you didn't know by the name, the CloudCast podcast is general technologies dealing with everything "Cloud Computing - Private Cloud, Public Cloud, Hybrid Cloud, Open Source, APIs - with experts from every aspect of the industry."

Rise of the Entrepreneur
Zac Johnson has been around on the Internet for a long time as an affiliate marketer, so it was about time for him to make a show. His show has real-life interviews and stories with some of the world's greatest entrepreneurs.

The Talking Dead
Yes, this one is kind of out of place. This podcast is based on the TV show "The Walking Dead." On off-season, Chris and Jason broadcast every 2-3 weeks, but during the peak season (WHICH IS SUNDAY!!! WOO HOOOO!), they record their podcast every Sunday and release the podcast on Monday. NOTE: This is NOT the same Chris that does the AMC's The Talking Dead Show after the Walking Dead every week. Different Chris.
