With so many free resources from websites to YouTube tutorials available to help teach new skills, it’s a great time to be a developer.
Whether you’re learning how to code, a self-taught programmer, or an industry veteran, podcasts in particular can be a convenient tool for enhancing your skills and technical knowledge. But being a software developer isn’t just about complicated code and programming languages — developers create and maintain products that influence our everyday lives, so it’s important to understand the human impact software creates, too. 
While many shows help break down the technical, there are several popular podcasts that discuss that impact and touch on often overlooked aspects of development. Many are also hosted by developers themselves, who provide behind-the-scenes looks at careers in programming. Software developers also use podcasts to share career tips, thoughts on current tech news, and what it’s like to be a tech worker during a huge moment of change within the industry.
Based on feedback from developers on social media, Insider compiled a list of podcasts every aspiring software developer can add to their queue to improve their programming skills.
