Podcasts have been around for decades but for most people they were the craft of the obscure, enjoyed by odd people and academics.
In 2006 Forester projected just 700k households in the US used podcasting.
Just a little over a decade later, 70% of the US population is now familiar with podcasting, and over half have actually listened to a podcast. But only 22% listen to podcasts weekly. If you’re here its probably because you either already are, or are soon to join the ranks of that special 22. And research shows that you 22 are more likely to be trailblazers and influencers. Good job you.
So for all you trailblazers and influencers of the Information Technology variety, I wanted to put together a list of the best IT Support podcasts published on the inter-waves today.
The tabGeeks list of top IT Support Podcasts
Supporting IT Support
Only the greatest podcast for IT Support Professionals on the internets. Yes of course we had to include our very own podcast, but it really is the best resource for people doing IT Support. Every other week I interview a veteran I.T. professional. We talk about work challenges, rewards, and how to be the best damned I.T. people we can be.
So far we’ve heard from some pretty amazing people. From Reggie Davis of Home Depot to Michael Bender of Microsoft, to the Deputy CIO of the City of Los Angeles.
CISO Security Vendor Relationship
Co-hosted by the creator of the CISO/Security Vendor Relationship Series, David Spark, and Mike Johnson, former CISO of Lyft, this show has quickly become very popular receiving rave reviews from fellow InfoSec professionals.
IT Career Energizer
When you listen to the I.T. Career Energizer you’ll hear from individuals from around the world. Each guest gives their own perspectives on career development and their views on the future of technology. My guests include programmers, business analysts, project managers and testers to name but a few.
Women in tech show
The #womenintech Podcast is hosted by WeAreLATech's Espree Devora and features inspiring Women in Tech from Engineers, Female Founders, Investors, UX and UI Designers, Journalists all sharing their story how they got to where they are today. The purpose of the show is for every listener to walk away feeling 'If She Can Do It So Can I'. I call it "actionable empowerment".
The global technology industry is a powerful engine of innovation that drives the economy. It's also a collection of insular communities full of hidden projects, quiet rivalries, and uncomfortable truths. Join Bloomberg Technology's Brad Stone each week as he and the team's reporters uncover what actually happens behind closed doors.
We see lots of movies and TV shows where hackers can infiltrate our lives with just a few keystrokes. But is it real? We’re here to find out. Malicious cat photos, sketchy Wi-Fi networks, rogue rentals, all-knowing webcams - those are just a few topics tackled in Hackable?, where we let our hackers shed light on just how secure we really are.
