Podcasts are my method of choice for keeping up to speed with the latest in the world (of infosec). I enjoy listening to podcasts while driving to/from work.
I thought I’d share a list of my favourite podcasts for all who might be interested.

As you can see, I’m not following pure technical podcasts.
A teacher of mine once said that learning about IT isn’t limited to IT itself, you can get new ideas and insights by expanding your vision to other domains, like science.
I also like to follow less in-depth podcasts as they teach me how to explain technical subjects to less-technical people (e.g., my parents …).
Please do share interesting podcasts with me, I still have some available time during my daily commute.
In case you’re wondering, I’m currently using Stitcher as my podcast app. I find this app has just enough functionalities for basic listening in my car.
If you know any interesting free/cheap Android podcasts apps, you can let me know as well.
