Podcasts are a great way to learn about what’s new in technology while you’re doing something else (like exercising, commuting, washing the dishes, or picking up around the house).
Here are my 5 favorite tech audio podcasts that are useful for Mac, iPhone, and iPad users. They’re all available for free in iTunes.
1. This Week in Tech
Records once a week. Each episode is about an hour and a half. A group of 3-4 people who are known in the tech world talk about various topics. There are other podcasts also produced by the same company, including MacBreak Weekly, iPad Today, and iFive for the iPhone.
2. Today in iOS (formerly Today in iPhone)
Rob Walch does about a one-hour podcast on the iPhone and iPad–he gives his opinions on the good, the bad, and the ugly. Listeners call in or write in with questions and solutions to others’ questions. Plus he gives away free apps.
3. NPR: Technology
They have a few great technology podcasts worth checking out.
This audio version of articles from their weekly Apple newsletter is short (a few minutes per story) and sweet.
5. The Needle & The Mouse
Just found out about this one and haven’t listened yet. It’s about technology and fashion, and how they intersect.
