Listen to the top Tech Podcasts & Be Up-to-Date
It is particularly important for decision-makers to stay informed about the latest trends and developments, not only in the technological field. Satisfying the general thirst for knowledge and absorbing new ideas is never wrong. But not knowing what is state-of-the-art or what will become state-of-the-art in the foreseeable future can quickly lead to companies lagging far behind their competitors and waiting for the end.
Staying up-to-date, however, is no longer a mammoth task as it was a few years ago. In fact, today there is an easy, fun and free way to learn about innovative ideas and new insights and keep up to date without having to spend precious time or a lot of money - it's listening to podcasts.Podcasts, which can be downloaded for free from the Internet, are a great way to not only learn about current technologies, developments, ideas and trends, but also to discover entirely new topics and fields for yourself.
And the best part is that you can listen to podcasts anywhere, on your commute to work, while jogging, on vacation at the beach, while gardening, or just relaxing on the couch. Even though the name suggests it, you don't need an iPod to listen to podcasts. Any kind of media player, smartphone or computer can play the files, which can be easily downloaded either through a podcast manager or from a website, or even streamed.
Not only because we ourselves make podcasts on interesting topics, but also because we have already gained many new ideas and insights from listening to podcasts, we have compiled a number of interesting podcasts below.
