I spend an awful lot of time listening to podcasts.

As a tech enthusiast and productivity nerd, most of the podcasts I listen to are either about tech or productivity. But I also listen to a handful of other podcasts.

However, in this article, I wanted to focus on the tech side, as there are great tech podcasts out there. That is why I decided to share the top 5 tech podcasts I’m currently listening to.

If you have a podcast that I haven’t mentioned in this article, I encourage you to share your favourites in the comments.

But without any further ado, here are my top 5 podcasts about tech…

Podcast 1: Eight or Sixteen Podcast

I wanted to start with the “Eight or Sixteen” Podcast, hosted by Mark Ellis and Rob. The podcast features engaging discussions on the latest technology news, rumours, events, and anything relating to tech.

As a long-term subscriber of Mark’s YouTube channel and blog, I find this to be a fantastic resource for anyone interested in tech, gadgets as well as Apple products.

Mark and Rob bring a perfect blend of technical knowledge and British humour, making the podcast fun and entertaining. I guess this is the reason I decided to feature this podcast at the top of my list.

I find this podcast to be ideal for tech enthusiasts, gadget lovers, Apple enthusiasts and anyone who has a passion for technology with a mix of British humour.

Podcast 2: The Minus Sixteen Podcast

Second on my list is the “The Minus Sixteen Podcast”, hosted by David Lewis and co-host Alex. This fortnightly podcast explores the latest in tech, focusing on Samsung, Apple, and other intriguing tech topics.

I find their discussions both entertaining and informative. I also like the fact that they often delve into other topics, such as behind-the-scenes content creation.

As a part-time content creator, this is great as people don’t tend to realise how much work goes into creating content, especially if you only create content part-time.

This podcast is ideal for tech enthusiasts, as well as Samsung and Apple fans. I can also recommend this podcast to aspiring tech content creators.

Podcast 3: The WAN Show

Third on the list is “The WAN Show” by Linus Tech Tips, this podcast is hosted by Linus and Luke and, unlike the first two podcasts, it primarily focuses on the world of computing.

This podcast is ideal for people who are interested in computing, gaming, and technology. I like that Linus and Luke go into detail when talking about topics, making the podcast an ideal for technical people and anyone who is interested in technical things.

The podcast features a blend of humour, technical knowledge and opinions, which makes the podcast more interesting.

In my view, The WAN Show isn’t a podcast that you listen to in one go. The majority of episodes are over 2-hours long, making them ideal for long trips or simply commuting to and from work.

Podcast 4: Waveform: The MKBHD Podcast

Like Linus Tech Tips, MKBHD needs no introduction, but in case you haven’t heard, Marques Brownlee (also known as MKBHD) has made a name for himself on YouTube reviewing technology.

Apart from YouTube, MKBHD, along with co-hosts Andrew Manganelli and David Imel, bring over a decade of tech industry knowledge to a podcast called “Waveform: The MKBHD Podcast”.

The podcast offers a deep dive into some of the latest and greatest tech, as well as tech news.

I find this podcast great for anyone who wants to keep up to date with the latest tech news and trends.

Podcast 5: Inside The Ecosystem

I only recently discovered this podcast, and I’ve been binge-listening to all the episodes.

Presented by Nikias Molina, the “Inside The Ecosystem” podcast shares stories of “real people” whose lives have been impacted by Apple products. The podcast aims to showcase how Apple products can enhance both personal and professional life.

As the title suggests, this podcast primarily focuses on Apple products, and it has some fantastic stories such as how an Apple Watch saved someone’s life, which is a perfect example of technology being useful.

But at the same time, it’s important to remember that other brands offer many of the features that Apple products offer. Just because this podcast talks about Apple, doesn’t necessarily mean that other brands don’t have similar features.

But as a whole, I’m a big fan of this podcast because it shows how technology can be used to enhance people’s lives.

Final Thoughts

As mentioned at the start, there are some incredible tech podcasts out there. But, these are the five I tend to listen to most often at present.

I find podcasts to be great for commuting to and from work, or for when you just want to switch off from the world and listen to something that you’re interested in.

For those of you interested, at present, I primarily listen to podcasts using the Apple Podcasts app, but when I’m not using an iPhone I tend to use Pocketcasts and Spotify. I also like watching podcasts on YouTube when listening at home as I find that being able to watch podcasts improves the experience.

I love discovering new things, so if you listen to a podcast I haven’t mentioned in this article, feel free to share it in the comments!
