Here are a list of popular virtualization, Cloud and tech related podcasts, many of which I try and listen to on a regular basis as they provide an effective way of keeping on top of what it happening in the industry, particularly in the areas of virtualization and Cloud. How much time I get listen to podcasts is usually determined with how much travel I’m doing in the car or train to and from the office.
Over the past couple of years podcasts have come and gone though there are a few that have, and continue to, endure the test of time.
If there are any podcasts that I have missed that you think worthy of inclusion then please let me know in the comments section below and I’ll get them added. Happy Listening!
