Drupal Podcasts - Keeping Up While Doing Something Else

Two people and a microphone

Podcasts, or "a digital medium that consists of an episodic series of audio, digital radio, PDF, or ePub files subscribed to and downloaded through web syndication or streamed on-line to a computer or mobile device" (wikipedia) have been around a little over 10 years, and lately have seen a resurgance in popularity. It's a great way to learn something, or least be entertained while you are commuting to work, exercising, or just cleaning the kitchen.

My preferred iOS podcast app, Downcast, shows me subscribed to about 50 shows. Which of course is way more than I can listen to, but at least gives me choices. Many of those are Drupal, technology and marketing related. Some of the best:


 

Dropcast from Mediacurrent. Brand new from one of the top Drupal shops in the world. The first show comes in at 45 minutes, with a variety of topics.

 


 

Drupalize.me logo

Drupalize.me from Lullabot. Drupalize.me has been around a while and generally puts out 1-2 shows a month, each running 15-50 minutes.

 


 

Drupal Easy logo

Drupal Easy. With nearly 150 episodes, it's been around forever. Tends to go long and sometimes sound amateurish, but they have great guests.

 


 

Hacking Culture logo

Hacking Culture by Lullabot. Also brand new, and not Drupal-exclusive. But their first episode featured a Backdrop CMS (the Drupal fork) discussion.

 


 

Drupal Easy logo

Full Stack Radio. A podcast for "developers interested in building great software products, product design, user experience, testing and system administration."

 


 

Social Media Examiner. If there is a marketing and social media podcast out there that has more immediately actionable information in it, I don't know it.

 


What others do we like that maybe aren't Drupal or developer focused? Well, since you asked: Sword & Laser, TED Radio Hour, Science Friday, Radiolab, Duct Tape Marketing, Cool Tools, and Ask Me Another.

Happy Listening!
