What does your Tech Podcast/RSS Feed Subscription List look like?

I’m always looking for new content I listen to podcasts and subscribe to technical blogs. Feel free to share your list and we may all discover good resources from each other. Please keep the focus of these lists to Software Development, Freelance, Self Development, and Tech.

I don’t use RSS for anything anymore - prefer to use Twitter to keep tabs on technical content or email newsletters or Mac OS notifications.

I don’t really read from my RSS reader. But I keep it to remember where I can find good content.

No other podcasts for you?

I am not much of a podcast listener tbh - I am not good at multi-tasking so I need to stop whatever I am doing to concentrate on what’s being said… which doesn’t last long as I get bored quickly/itch to do ‘something’.

I only listen to Ruby rogues when it’s something that really interests me, like when @ryanstout was on it :slight_smile:

I would give yours a go tho - but actually think you would be better off doing youtube vids (even if just talking into them). That could be your thing actually! You could offer both - a youtube vid or the podcast - I would probably put the vid on, then switch tabs (so still able to listen to it while it was on) :sunny: Just don’t make them too long :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Oh just remembered I have actually listened to all three The Elixir Fountain | Free Listening on SoundCloud :slight_smile:

Coming back to say that I’m really enjoying the Elixir Fountain podcast - has to be one of the best I’ve come across :023:

For the Rails Rumble competition my team made a Podcast Feed site TrenderCast. I’m the main client so it will be continued development every Sunday to finish the vision of its intended design. It will soon have podcast trends, recommendations, and popular amongst your Twitter connections.

For now you can at least listen to podcasts and save your podcast subscriptions.

I am my own customer. :smiley:

Looks good Dan! Good luck!

I wasn’t sure if it was Ruby-only, but I submitted Elixir Fountain anyway :slight_smile:

Yeah it has to be Ruby. Doesn’t have to be Rails.
