Tech Talkers Quick and Dirty Tips

“Tech Talker’s Quick and Dirty Tips to Navigate the Digital World” is a great podcast for tech-lovers on the go. It is quick and easy to listen to and gives you the most important points in six minutes or less. I am all for convenience, so this is one I would highly recommend!

American Innovations

I am a big fan of Wondery Podcasts, and one of my personal favorites is “American Innovations!” They have episodes on various tech products from Auto-Tune to Artificial Intelligence. It is a great way to learn something new when I am stuck in traffic, and it makes me appreciate all the awesome technology around me now that I understand how it came to be.

99% Invisible

While most people think design is about pretty kitchens and perfectly placed pillows and accessories, there is so much more to it. The truth is that there is practicality and technology associated with things that are designed every day. In “99% Invisible,” host Roman Mars does a deep dive into history’s impressive but often overlooked works and designs where interior design meets technology!

Experience Better: The CX Podcast

This may sound self-serving, but my favorite tech-related podcast is our company podcast, “Experience Better: The CX Podcast.” Each month, our host talks to industry experts, clients, and internal employees about all that’s new and exciting in CX. They share customer success stories, the latest CX research, and we, of course, keep tabs on current trends in the billing and payment and customer communication spaces. It’s really a one-stop shop for businesses that want to learn how to improve their customer experience. You can find it where you listen to your podcasts!

Working Girl Talk

Working Girl Talk” is one of my favorite podcasts, and I would highly recommend it for any woman in the workplace! Although not every episode is about a technical topic, there are tons of great episodes about social media strategy, online ads, and even SEO that are perfect for non-techies looking to learn some new skills. As a woman, I love listening to stories and advice from other successful ladies who have been in my shoes before. It is empowering, inspiring, and, most importantly, educational.

Sway

Kara Swisher, one of Silicon Valley’s most well-known, respected, and lovingly sarcastic tech journalists, is now with The New York Times and launched my new favorite podcasts, “Sway.” The interview Swisher did with the now-former CEO of Parler, John Matze, was partly responsible for his demise when he confessed on-air that they did not have moderation in place for all of Parler’s users. My second favorite episode is with the Times’ cybersecurity reporter, Nicole Perlroth, about Nicole’s new book, “This is the Way the World Ends.” Since the start of this year, Swisher has interviewed everyone from Bill Gates to Mark Cuban and Gen. John W. “Jay” Raymond of Space Force. I tune in every time a new episode comes out.

Technovation

“Technovation” is a twice-weekly podcast series hosted by Peter High, the author of Implementing World Class IT Strategy. In each episode, Peter High will interview tech experts on a variety of topics such as AI, digital transformation, and leadership positions. This podcast is highly recommended for top executives, tech innovators, and tech professionals. My favorite episode is the talk with Shafiq Khan, the President and Founding Partner of Teach the World Foundation. He emphasizes how digital technology helps us to cope with illiteracy worldwide to build a better future.

TED Talks Technology

There are a lot of robust choices to pick from. That said, I’m partial towards “TED Talks Technology.” It not only gives a great overview of what’s going on in the tech industry but attracts a wide variety of guests to the show. From researchers to inventors and business leaders, I appreciate the diversity of opinions and angles. Keeping in mind this essential crossroads of new tech is not only “cool,” but above all pragmatic and scalable, I can wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who wants to find out the latest and greatest in this area.

Accidental Tech

“Accidental Tech” is one of the original tech podcasts that has a huge fan base. It is my favorite podcast as the three hosts are all top-notch developers who know their stuff. Moreover, following their intuitive conversation feels like you possess a backstage pass to an accumulation of the best of best in the industry. The podcast ranges from significant explanations of the trendiest products one minute to prolonged running jokes between tech-savvy friends.

The Future of Everything

I love listening to the Wall Street Journal’s “The Future of Everything” podcast. It combines science and technology and how it impacts our everyday lives. In one of the episodes, the podcast explores how blood can be made in a lab in the future after a pandemic causes a blood-donation shortage. I’m always left feeling like I’ve learned something new about the world we live in.
