Getting bored of your current playlists? Need some new recommendations for great podcasts? While the Involtans enjoy a good rock-out session during the workday, we like to mix in some tech-focused podcasts to inspire innovation and keep us at the forefront of industry trends. Read on to learn what top podcasts are streaming through the Involtans’ headphones!

T200Cast

In the spirit of Women’s History Month, we’re kicking off the list with one of our favorite podcasts, T200Cast! Led by the female trailblazers and innovators at T200, an organization focused on advancing and elevating women in technology, T200Cast aims to engage, connect and grow the women in the tech community and elevate more women leaders to C-level, executive and board positions.

By highlighting the unique journeys of the women who lead T200, the creators (including our friend Sandy Venugopal of SentinelOne) strive to inspire more women in tech to connect, learn and lead. If you’re a woman in tech looking to join a supportive community that empowers you to overcome barriers and reach the next level in your tech career, look no further. T200 also offers career-focused education events, mentorship programs and networking opportunities driven by dedicated volunteers.

This Week in Tech (TWiT.tv)

If you’re new to the world of tech podcasts and are unsure where to start listening, TWiT.tv is a melting pot of great information on all things IT—we agree with their sentiment that “When it comes to tech, TWiT is IT.” Covering the latest technology developments since 2005, TWiT.tv was one of the world’s first all-tech podcast networks—and they’ve built an impressive, extensive library since then! If you need a good jumping-off point, check out two of our favorite recurring podcasts from the TWiT.tv team: This Week in Tech and Security Now.

As the flagship podcast program from TWiT.tv, This Week in Tech, hosted by founder Leo Laporte, brings tech experts and journalists together for a roundtable discussion that analyzes current news, trends and niche topics in the tech industry.

Security Now, hosted by Steve Gibson, security expert and inventor of the first anti-spyware program, is a conversational podcast with Leo Laporte that breaks down cybersecurity threat trends, diving into the latest cybercrime and hacking stories to offer advice on how to keep your business and data protected.

TED Tech

When technology is constantly evolving, how can we make sure that tech continues to build, empower and connect us? The weekly TED Talks TED Tech podcast hosted by Sherrell Dorsey, founder and CEO of The Plug, a digital news and insight platform covering the Black innovation economy, uncovers the riveting questions that sit at the intersection of technology, society, science, design, business and innovation.

Bringing together the latest insights from other TED Talks speakers, Sherrell explores how technology is changing our world, its impact on the way businesses confront challenges like the climate crisis and how organizations can keep pace with powerful advancements like AI.

Accidental Tech Podcast

Contrary to popular belief, tech isn’t all cut and dry—we like to have some fun, too! If you’re searching for a lively tech podcast that makes you chuckle, the Accidental Tech Podcast is for you. Hosted by tech nerds Marco Arment, Casey Liss and John Siracusa, Accidental Tech covers all things tech, Apple and programming.

The three hosts bring together unique experiences in web and app development, programming and business leadership to give their insight on the latest technology developments and challenges. Their long-standing friendship brings hilarious candor and the occasional loosely related (or fully unrelated) tangent to keep listeners on their toes and laughing while they learn.

How I Built This

For the entrepreneur in all of us, How I Built This is an explorative NPR podcast hosted by Guy Raz, an award-winning podcaster and seasoned journalist. Though not entirely tech-focused, How I Built This is a master class on innovation, creativity, leadership and navigating challenges. Through insightful weekly interviews with the world’s best-known entrepreneurs, Guy uncovers how they built their iconic brands and overcame unavoidable moments of doubt and failure to reach success.

Guy takes off the rose-tinted lenses to deep dive into how brand leaders navigated the many ups and downs of getting their ideas to market, making How I Built This the perfect podcast for listeners looking to explore their entrepreneurial spirit and bring their visions to life.
