My Favorite Podcasts & Video Channels for 2022

podcast

I’ve posted a couple of times (here and here) in the past about my favorite podcasts and I figured it’s past time for an updated list. So here’s my current list of favorite podcasts. And this time I thought I’d add my favorite YouTube video channels. Some are developer-related, and some are not.

DotNetRocks

This one continues to be one of my all-time favorites. Carl Franklin and Richard Campbell are two of the superstars of the .NET world and continuously provide a steady stream of the greatest minds in the industry as their guests.

Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend

You either like Conan O’Brien or you don’t. He’s not for everyone and I’m not always in the mood for his brand of humor. But sometimes it really just hits the spot.

Adventures in .NET

These guys provide some consistently insightful looks into the .NET and related world. And I was a guest on their podcast as well talking about Power Automate.

The 6 Figure Developer

Another podcast that I had the pleasure to be a guest on. They cover a wide gamut of developer topics and don’t focus on one particular space like some others. They also have some great guests, lots of of them waaaaaay better than me!

Levar Burton Reads

There’s nothing better than listening to Levar Burton read some truly great sci-fi/fantasy short fiction stories.

April Dunham

One of my favorite YouTube channels, April provides vast amounts of knowledge on the Microsoft Power Platform, including Power Apps, Power Automate, Dataverse, and more.

Give April a watch

Code with Ania Kubów

I haven’t found a better source on YouTube for JavaScript tutorials. She makes it fun and interesting to learn.

Guidance Counselor 2.0

Taylor Desseyn is a recruiter based out of Nashville who focuses on remote jobs. But several times a week, usually at 10:30 AM Eastern time, he hosts a live show on LinkedIn with various guests (including me a few months ago) to talk about all kinds of topics across the tech industry. He focuses on the “soft skills” like hiring, interviewing, balance, job-finding, mental health, and so on. A lot of those live shows get put out later in podcast version.

The History Guy

I love history, both real history and alternate history fiction. But The History Guy makes real history truly interesting, often covering lesser-known topics of history “that deserves to be remembered”.

BBC Friday Night Comedy

From the days of my youth watching Monty Python’s Flying Circus on late-night PBS television, I have been a fan of British entertainment. FNC provides a good rotating set of some of their best BBC 4 Radio shows each Friday. Some of it obviously deals with the politics of the UK and thus I don’t follow, but there’s a lot that doesn’t and it’s a lot of fun to listen to.

Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me

The best of the NPR Saturday shows, it’s funny and they have some great guests. Though in the recent couple of years there has been a lot of rehashing “best of” shows. Still good, though.
