Technology podcasts that are worth a listen

According to Radio Joint Audience Research (RAJAR), 4.7 million people in the UK download a podcast every week. 

Podcasts are a great way to stay up-to-date with the latest news and trends on the go. However, with over 500,000 podcasts on a range of topics, it can be difficult to know where to start. 

Here are some technology and engineering podcasts that we think you should try.

If you’re interested in engineering

The Amp Hour Electronics Podcast is an unscripted radio show hosted by engineering blogger Dave Jones and founder of Contextual Electronics Chris Gammell. The episodes range from interviews with industry experts to discussions about hobbyist electronics.

For a more general podcast you can download This Week in Engineering that highlights the latest topics discussed in the industry, such as renewable energy, space exploration and robotics.

If you’re interested in technology 

There are lots of podcasts where experts discuss how new technologies will impact our future. On Talking Machines, for example, an industry expert joins the host each week to answer your questions about the future of machine learning.

You can also keep up to date on the latest technology releases on This Week in Tech where a panel reviews the latest products and trends each week. The topics range from reviewing the latest smartphone, to discussing the possible capabilities of AI.

Some others to look out for

There are also some general podcasts that are worth a listen. If you enjoy TED Talks videos, you can find them all on its podcast, with hundreds of episodes of people offering insight into their specialist areas.

Some publications are also releasing their own podcasts to help keep you informed about their news. There is the Wired UK Podcast that highlights its weekly articles or The Guardian’s Chips with Everything, a podcast that answers questions on digital culture, such as the future of smart cities or how technology can help dementia patients.
