👋 Thanks for visiting the Alcamine blog. We're changing the way you look for a job in tech. If you're on the job hunt, please sign up at the bottom of the page!

If you’re a developer, let’s face it - you probably don’t read the docs 😅. Instead, put on one of these podcasts to learn what’s happening in the web development community! This list is in no particular order.


Wes Bos and Scott Tolinski are the hosts of this show. They both create online courses and are great at explaining complex tech in a way that’s easy to understand. This is a must listen for someone learning to code because it has a little bit of everything for you to dig into.

Shop Talk

If I’m in the car this is my go to podcast because of the depth they go into on a singular topic. Ever wanted to talk about GatsbyJS for an hour straight? You got it. Chris Coyier and Dave Rupert do a great job with the show and always have interesting guests.

Javascript Jabber

A really fun podcast that focuses on the Javascript ecosystem. There’s a lot of variety to the show that helps you learn different topics fast. One week could be machine learning and the next week design systems.

React Podcast

You need to listen to this podcast if you use React. The information that’s on this show isn’t located in the docs or the internet. I listen to this podcast a bunch because it gives me an idea of where the React ecosystem is headed. They have people from the React Core team on fairly often as well.

Snacks Daily

Wait, this isn’t a web development podcast! You’re right, but they talk about tech companies and startups. It’s a great way to get introduced to the business side of web development in fifteen minute snacks!
