My Podcasts

Apart from my Kindle and Audible consumption I spend a lot of time listening to podcasts. Whether travelling in the car, on the train, out walking, taking a flight, wherever. I’m not usually far from a having a podcast in my ear.

So here’s my current listening list:

1. Windows Weekly

The latest Microsoft news with some fun and entertainment along the way. Paul Thurrott’s musing make this podcast alone.

2. This Week in Google

Always good to hear about the wider internet but of late has become too involved in US politics for me. May need to review my subscription is that continues.

3. The Tim Ferriss Show

Some really great advice and business insights. Also lots of life lessons that I have found work really well for me. A weekly must listen for me.

4. Microsoft Cloud Show

Can get a little deep into the developer weeds for me sometime but generally great information and insight into what’s happening with the Microsoft Cloud.

5. Hardcore History

Not a regular event but when these episodes drop I’m all ears. They are are deep dive into history told by a master narrator. If you love history, you’ll love these episodes.

6. Jocko Podcast

Probably too hard core for most. For me it is a great mix of military history and business mindset training. If you have a ‘fanatical’ tendency then give this one a listen.

7. Unbeatable Mind Podcast

A short format that hosts interesting people who have typically overcome adversity to succeed. Also some great mind and resilience training methodologies as well.

8. Ammo NYC

Another thing I’m fanatical about is my cars and especially detailing them. Here you’ll learn all the tricks and secrets to becoming a master car detailer. Why? Because there’s is nothing more satisfying than a shiny car.

I listen to all episodes at at least 2X speed to allow me to crank through most of these episodes in a week. I’ve added and deleted many podcasts over the time, and continue to do so, but the above is are the long term residents of my device.

Since 2010 I have published my own podcast:

Need to Know podcast

which covers the Microsoft Cloud (typically Office 365 and Azure) as well as business topics. I do these with my co-host Marc Kean and encourage you to have a listen and me know what you think.
