October 7, 2016

As you probably know, podcasts are back and booming.

According to Edison Research, over 21 percent of Americans (roughly 57 million people) listened to podcasts at least once a month in 2016. Today, there seems to be a podcast for everyone.

Whether you’re into news, music, politics, history, pop culture, food or personal finance, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding a whole slew of podcast options. And if you’re a techie, the dozens of podcasts being produced around the country (and locally) could overwhelm even the most seasoned audio nerds.

To make things easier on you, we’ve rounded up five tech podcasts you should add to your daily rotation. Trust us, your commute will fly by.
