Podcasts for Game Developers

I listen to a lot of podcasts. According to Pocket Casts, my favorite podcast app, I’ve listened to 39 days and 7 hours of podcasts. That’s 1423 hours of podcasts. My app also is happy to tell me that during that time I could have gone around the world 13 times in an air balloon,  128 billion google searches were performed, 5.6 trillion emails were sent.

So before I manage to come up with even higher numbers let me repeat, I listen to a lot of podcasts. So today I want to give you my personal list of 77 podcasts related to gaming, game development and software development.


Going through all of the podcasts would be a bit much, so let me show you my personal favorites.

Giant Beastcast

Giant Bomb logoAn English, weekly podcast by the  Giant Bomb East team. Video game journalists and the occasional guest talk about news, releases, press events and more with some behind the scenes knowledge. The hosts are humorous and often drift into silly but fun discussions about everything and anything.

Game Dev Podcast

Game Dev Podcast LogoA German, monthly podcast with various German game developers. Even though this podcast is relatively new the first two episodes managed to impress me with its plethora of fascinating topics, stories and tips. Their episodes about applications and game schools are particularly interesting for anyone looking to get into the games industry.
