Front End Web Development Podcasts
I listen to all of my podcasts using Pocket Casts, it makes my life easy to switch from mobile over to desktop super easy. I also love the Android and iOS app designs. I am not affiliated with Pocket Casts at time of writing this blog. This list is in no particular order (yet).
Like everything I try to always include the community, so if you have a podcast you want to share please throw me a pull request!
Front End Happy Hour

Pocket Casts Description
A podcast featuring panelists of engineers from @Netflix, @Evernote, @Atlassian & @LinkedIn talking over drinks about all things Front End development.
Alex's Thoughts
Front End Happy Hour has become my weekly cast. I enjoy how light the conversation remains, while the technical material is amazingly relevant. Of course it is easy to this when you have some of the top experts in some of the biggest Tech companies as guests 😺.
Syntax - Tasty Web
Loading image...
Pocket Casts Description
Full Stack Developers Wes Bos and Scott Tolinski dive deep into web development topics, explaining how they work and talking about their own experiences. They cover from JavaScript frameworks like React, to the latest advancements in CSS to simplifying web tooling.
Alex's Thoughts
Syntax is hosted by Wes Bos and Scott Tolinski. Both are gifted teachers and have great tutorial based websites wesbos.com and leveluptutorials.com respectively. I usually catch up on these while 🏃.
JS Party

Pocket Casts Description
A community celebration of JavaScript and the web. This show records LIVE on Thursdays at 1pm US/Eastern time. Panelists include Suz Hinton, Feross Aboukhadijeh, Kevin Ball, Emma Wedekind, Jerod Santo, Nick Nisi, Divya Sasidharan, Mikeal Rogers, and Chris Hiller. Topics discussed include the web platform (Chrome, Safari, Edge, Firefox, Brave, etc), front-end frameworks (React, Ember, Angular, Vue, etc), Node.js, web animation, SVG, robotics, IoT, and much more. If JavaScript and/or the web touch your life, this show’s for you. Some people search for JSParty and can't find the show, so now the string JSParty is in our description too.
Alex's Thoughts
This really is a party, not in the sense everyone is filling up balloons all the time. It is more of the kind of party where all the Stranger Things get around a table and nerd out for a while! I really enjoy how empowering the episodes make you feel after listening.
Ladybug Podcast

Pocket Casts Description
We're Emma Wedekind, Kelly Vaughn, Lindsey Kopacz, and Ali Spittel - four seasoned software developers working in different sectors. Since there's a major lack of technical podcasts out there, we've decided to start one. Just kidding -- there's already a ton! But, we wanted to add our voices to the space and share our diverse experiences and advice. We'll have great discussions around how to start coding, the hot technologies right now, how to get your first developer job, and more!
Alex's Thoughts
They hosts are absolute rock stars in the #webdev community! They are 9 episodes into the start of this podcast series, I can't wait to listen to more.
Developer Tea

Pocket Casts Description
Developer Tea exists to help driven developers connect to their ultimate purpose and excel at their work so that they can positively impact the people they influence. With over 13 million downloads to date, Developer Tea is a short podcast hosted by Jonathan Cutrell, co-founder of Spec and developer at Clearbit. We hope you'll take the topics from this podcast and continue the conversation, either online or in person with your peers.
Alex's Thoughts
Jonathan's voice is so soothing, you won't be able to stop listening (be careful while driving). This podcast fits great on most commutes as it usually seems to be about 15 minutes or less (a few are longer). This podcast is basically yoga for my ears, it makes me settle down and really appreciate the goals that are constantly rolling around in my mind. As of writing this there are 720 episodes, I don't know how anyone can make that many so quickly, but they are all really well made and though out.
The Web Platform Podcast

Pocket Casts Description
The Web Platform Podcast was founded in 2014 by HTML W3C Invited Expert Erik Isaksen who started the podcast with the mission "To learn more from the community at large and meet more of the people building the things that make the web what it is and what it could be."
Alex's Thoughts
The Web Platform Podcast is one of my favorites, it was my weekly listen. They are releasing a little less regularly now, but still great guests and content.
Angular Air

Pocket Casts Description
AngularAir is a video podcast about the Google Angular platform hosted by Justin Schwartzenberger.
Alex's Thoughts
Angular Air has a weird way of publishing their podcasts. So I will usually catch theirs on YouTube, as it tends to be interactive which is awesome!
Full Stack Radio

Pocket Casts Description
A podcast for developers interested in building great software products. Every episode, Adam Wathan is joined by a guest to talk about everything from product design and user experience to unit testing and system administration.
Alex's Thoughts
Full Stack Radio helps remind me as an aspiring front end developer, to remember the backend. I actually stumbled into this one because Adam Wathan is one of the creators of tailwindcss and is a great author.

Pocket Casts Description
Toolsday is a 20-ish-minute podcast hosted by Una Kravets & Chris Dhanaraj. Toolsday is about the latest in tech tools, tips, and tricks on Tuesdays at 2! (Our alliteration game is so strong).
Alex's Thoughts
Toolsday pulls you in at the very beginning with Una playing an awesome new ukulele song! Because of Una Kravets and Chris Dhanaraj's amazing UI/Frontend experience working at Google and Netflix.
Adventures in Angular

React Podcast

Pocket Casts Description
Conversations about React with your favorite developers.
Alex's Thoughts
React Podcast is hosted by Michael Chan, in full honesty I haven't listened to a cast yet, but this came up as a suggestion since I am new to the ReactJS community. So it is now in my queue 🤞to learn a lot!

A live podcast about front end web design and UX.
Alex's Thoughts
I found Shop Talk Show very recently and have been really enjoying it. Dave Rupert is a fun guy to listen to and his site is super awesome!

Pocket Casts Description
The Google Cloud Platform Podcast, coming to you every week. Discussing everything on Google Cloud Platform from App Engine to Big Query.

I am a huge Google Cloud fan so I try to catch up on all of these episodes. I will admit if there is something (like networking) I will often skip, until it is an episode geared more towards development.
Y Combinator

Pocket Casts Description
We talk with people who are shaping the future. A show about technology in business, research, and art.

Y Combinator always keeps me up on what is happening next with technology in business. Yes I do have a day job and I need to stay in touch with the heartbeat of our economy!
How I Built This with Guy Raz
Loading image...
Pocket Casts Description
Guy Raz dives into the stories behind some of the world's best known companies. How I Built This weaves a narrative journey about innovators, entrepreneurs and idealists—and the movements they built.
Alex's Thoughts
This is probably more for wanting to keep AJonP going 😺, keeping anything as a side hustle takes work, so it helps to hear others story!

Alex's Thoughts
I might be a little biased on this one as I just started working here. However, the content is amazing! If you only listen to one checkout Ep. 5 - Experience Design Week Recap, I guarantee you will love the leprechaun tale, and how it fits into design and the digital world.
