💯 100 Days to Offload

This article is one of a series of posts I have written for the 100 Days to Offload challenge. Disclaimer: The challenge focuses on writing frequency rather than quality, and so posts may not always be fully planned out!

Another podcast I frequently listen to likely needs no introduction of its own. The This Week in Tech (or just “TWiT”) network’s flagship podcast - also called TWiT - must be one of the longest-running tech podcasts.

The podcast series started back in 2005. It runs weekly, with episodes recorded live each Sunday evening and made available via podcast clients shortly afterwards.

It is hosted by Leo Laporte, who is joined by interesting and varied panelists from across the tech sector. Episodes feature light-hearted discussion of recent news and insights from the technology world.

Episodes are pretty lengthy, and they keep me going for a couple of days each week as I walk the dog. However, by listening I feel that I get a really good overview of the relevant news in the space. Leo and the guests are always great to listen to, it’s often funny, and I always learn something new. It’s not too technical and would be easily consumable by anyone interested.

If you’re looking to add something new to your podcast library, then I can certainly recommend subscribing for general weekly tech updates. I personally listen to it as an audio podcast, but episodes are also available via video.
