I admit it: I’m addicted to podcasts. Why? Because they allow me to multitask. For example, I can take Hugo (my dog) for a long walk while listening to some of my favourite podcasts on software development. It’s the best of both worlds; I get to exercise my brain and my body at the same time.
If you’re an on-the-go developer looking for a better way to maximize your time, I would recommend listening to a podcast (or two) while walking the dog, working out, or doing anything else that’s physical in nature. Here’s a list of some of my favourite podcasts:
- Alt.NET Podcast
- Career Tools
- .NET Rocks!
- Manager Tools
- Polymorphic Podcast
- Stack Overflow Podcasts
- This Week in Tech (TWiT)
- Windows Weekly with Paul Thurrott
And what’s the best software for podcasts? That’s easy; the Zune software client. Recently, I dropped the iPod along with iTunes and opted for the Zune. It’s a much better solution and works seamlessly on my Dell Latitude E4300 running Windows 7.
