8 of the best technology podcasts for your listening pleasure

The tech industry continues to boom, with new advances and innovations coming off the immeasurable production line seemingly every day. So what better way to keep informed then to use the PR consultant's best friend: podcasts!

As we've discussed in earlier blog posts, the podcast has become the go to medium for those trying to get across their personality and expertise to clients and prospects. The human voice allows for the ‘podcaster’ to convey their character; it allows them to come across as more personable than through text and doesn't demand complete focus, which video does (not to mention it's a lot cheaper).

For that reason, we’ve decided to collect some of the most informative (and entertaining) podcasts to help keep you on top of the latest in the technology world:
