9 podcasts I like to listen to

People frequently ask me which podcasts I like because I am often listening to them when I commute. I’ll introduce you to nine of my favorite shows in this post! As I think they are all fantastic shows, they are not in any particular order.

The Secure Developer

One of the podcasts I frequently listen to is The Secure Developer by the DevSecCon community. As a software developer I can identify with this podcast’s primary objective, which is to provide developers and AppSec teams with better strategies for improving their security posture.

Darknet Diaries

Have you ever wondered what is going on in the hidden part of the network? If so, the Darknet Diaries might be a show for you. It is a podcast about hackers, breaches, shadow government activities, cybercrime, and all the things that dwell on the hidden parts of the network. I personally like this show because it does not require the listener to have a deep understanding of the subject matter.

Hacking Humans

Phishing is one of the topics that most interests me. I enjoy listening to Hacking Humans because of this. The hosts of this program, Joe Carrigan and Dave Bittner, discuss the criminal exploits, phishing schemes, and social engineering scams that are taking a heavy toll on organizations around the world.

Talk Python To Me

Talk Python To Me is one of my all time favorite shows. Michael Kennedy is hosting this great podcast that has nearly 400 episodes! The show covers a wide array of Python topics and has a format of a casual 1-hour conversation with industry experts. I would advise this podcast to anyone interested in Python programming.

Command Line Heroes

Command Line Heroes is the original podcast from Red Hat. It is a great show that tells the epic true tales of how developers, programmers, hackers, geeks, and open source rebels revolutionized and are revolutionizing the technology landscape. The host, Saron Yitbarek, has mastered the art of storytelling and it is always a pleasure to listen to new episodes!

The Stack Overflow Podcast

Frank and funny conversations about what it means to work in software world. This is The Stack Overflow Podcast and I can recommend it to every programmer that is using Stack Overflow (basically everyone).

The Lazarus Hei$t

Ever wondered whether it is possible to break into a bank and to steal 1 billion dollars? The Lazarus Hei$t tells the story of one group that almost did just that. It takes will take you inside a world most of us know nothing about and keep you at the edge of your seat for all 10 episodes!


Risky.biz is a weekly podcast that features news and in-depth commentary from security industry luminaries. I personally like to listen to this show whenever I find 10 minutes to spare.

Boring Books for Bedtime

Sometimes I have trouble sleeping. In addition to that, I have always enjoyed a good bedtime story. Since I was raised up by a nanny who refused to read me a bedtime story, I am now making an amends and often find myself listening to Boring Books for Bedtime.
