The Ultimate List of Python Podcasts

I couldn’t find a good and updated list of Python developer or Python programming podcasts online. So I created my own list with the best Python podcasts.

The Ultimate List of Python Podcasts

I enjoy listening to all kinds of podcasts when I’m at the gym or driving. There are some really good podcasts about Python development out there but I just couldn’t find a good (and updated) list.

I initially created this list on forum posts and by searching the iTunes podcast directory and I will continue to grow it with user feedback. I plan to keep this list updated, so feel free to shoot me an email if you think anything is missing or if you’d like to see your own Python podcast added.

My criteria for inclusion on this list are:

  • episode download links must work; and
  • the podcast must be active (new episodes are coming out) OR at least have an interesting archive with old episodes worth listening to.

Enjoy the podcasts! 🎙🐍

Test & Code

A podcast about Software Development, Software Testing, and Python. How did you become a software developer/tester/engineer/lead, etc? Odds are we all are missing some important information to do our jobs most effectively. This podcast is an attempt to fill those education gaps. I focus on testing and process questions like “How do I know it works?”, “How do I effectively test?”, and the like. But really, anything in the software development realm is fair game.

Teaching Python

We’re two teachers from South Florida teaching Python to middle school students. One of us has taught for a long time and just recently started coding in Python. The other one is making this website. Our goal is to help teachers with the art and science of teaching Python so that more students can learn how to code.
