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! 🎙🐍

Talk Python To Me

Talk Python to Me is a weekly podcast hosted by Michael Kennedy. The show covers a wide array of Python topics as well as many related topics (e.g. MongoDB, AngularJS, DevOps). The format is a casual 45 minute conversation with industry experts.

Podcast.__init__

A podcast about Python and the people who make it great. Hosted by Tobias Macey and Christopher Patti.

Python Bytes

Python Bytes is a weekly podcast hosted by Michael Kennedy and Brian Okken. Python Bytes podcast delivers headlines directly to your earbuds. If you want to stay up on the Python developer news but don’t have time to scour reddit, twitter, and other news sources, just subscribe and you’ll get the best picks delivered weekly.

The Python Experience

The personal ramblings of the perpetual computer programming newb, finally finding his way “home” to Python, and determined to do things more Pythonically.

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.

Import This: A Python Podcast for Humans

Featuring Kennneth Reitz and a random Python co-host.

Radio Free Python

A monthly podcast focused on the Python programming language and its community.

(No updates since 2013 but an interesting archive of episodes.)

From python import podcast

A small-batch artisanal podcast for irreverent pythonistas. Easy-going, conversational, often silly, and occasionally earning our iTunes “explicit” tag, From Python Import Podcast is news, analysis, discussion, and general shenanigans about the Python language and community. Put on your headphones and come hang out with us!

(No updates since 2014 but an interesting archive of episodes.)
