Tech Podcasts Everyone Should Follow


£ | oo) I re h

Ever since I got my first iPhone and made the switch from Samsung, I have been hung up in the world of tech. Something about the design of the iPhone just stood out to me and I wanted to learn more. Originally, this led to me reading any and every book on technology. Nowadays my go-to is podcasts. I can listen to them at the gym, on my runs, or on my commute to work. The offer an easy way to learn more about subjects. I am a self-taught tech enthusiast and I owe it all to podcasts. Whether you are brand new to the world of technology, are interested in the design, or simply want to stay up to date on the latest products there is a podcast for you.

Would the Code-newbie be suitable for someone learning Python with no prior experience in coding (though with some experience in Excel and SQL)? A mentee of mine could find that useful. Thanks
