Best Agile Podcasts for 2022

Best-Agile-Podcasts

Podcasts are a great way to learn and stay on top of topics of interest. Those of us who are fans of agile ways of working are lucky to have many great podcasts to choose from. This post provides an overview of the active and popular podcasts along with my recommended best agile podcasts.

The list below only includes podcasts that are currently active. I know that maintaining a podcast is tough work and some podcasts have launched with fanfare and then quietly fizzled. (I had a similar experience with videocasting and Fresh Agile Voices).

Below is the list I am using as a starting point. It is sorted alphabetically. Over the next few months I am going to put in some time to go through these, confirming that they are still active, and listen to a few episodes of each. I will publish what I learn here in this space.

Finding the Best Agile Podcasts

What makes for a “best agile podcast”? We all have different tastes and interests obviously. In looking for the “best”, I will consider some of the following:

    • The stay awake factor – Does it hold my interest?
    • Technical – Is the sound quality good and consistent?
    • Learning – Does it provide insights that add to my knowledge and understanding?
    • Entertainment – In addition to learning, is it entertaining? (I supposed this is quite similar to the stay awake factor).
    • Accurate – Does the podcast provide information that is factually correct? I don’t want any Q content, conspiracy theories or anything weird like that.

The Pool of Podcasts we are Considering for Best Agile Podcasts

We have compiled the following list by searching online as well as posting the question in LinkedIn. It is a pretty solid list and thank you to all of you who contributed ideas.

My next step will be to listen to each of these. Some of these I have already tune into. For those, the latest episodes are downloaded to my phone automatically as they become available.

For the others, I am going to have to invest some time to listen, learn, and log my reactions.
