New (to me) Podcasts

I’ve been not-so-secretly working on a podcast over at I’ve been doing a lot of research to try and nail down exactly what I want in a podcast.

As part of that research I’ve been exposed to a lot of new listening.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Coding Blocks Podcast

Coding Blocks

Of course I have to pimp the one I’m on first. 🙂 Coding Blocks is a .NET heavy, “tales from the water cooler” type tech show. We’re just getting started so I’d love to hear some feedback!



This show features a wide range of interviewees and every episode gives me a fresh new perspective on what’s happening in the tech world.

It’s inspiring to hear the different ways that people are succeeding in the tech community and the host does a great job of getting to the “heart” the conversation.


Edge Cases

The site claims the podcast that the show is “mostly Apple-related” but the few episodes I’ve listened to been agnostic.

The conversational tone felt familiar from the start, which is hard to do with technical subjects. I felt like I was talking code w/ the guys at lunch.

Security Now

This is my first TWiT podcasts, and it’s fantastic! Leo and Steve sound like old friends and Steve is an absolute friggin’ wizard. ‘Nuff said.

Steve is famous for “diving deep” and I certainly enjoy the thick, juicy content, but some of my favorite segments are when they go off on tangents talking about things like audio books and TV shows…even shows and books I’ve never heard of.

Smart Passive Income

I’m a full time, salaried employee but the SPI podcast is smart, funny and inspirational. Every week is chock full of insight and positive energy, I’m amazed by the sheer idea throughput.

The hosts’ scientific methodology and charisma make the episodes fun, and I always feel like I learned something.
