SQL, AppFrame and other cool technologies

Podcasts for nerds

On my commute from and to Ølen I’ve got a lot of time to kill, so I’ve started listening to podcasts. By now I’m following 30 podcasts! Most of these are from NRK, so they’re in Norwegian, but I’m also listening to a couple of English podcasts. I hope some of these might be interesting for you, and maybe help you on your commute or when you’re working out! All of them are available in iTunes.

.NET Rocks!
Talk show for developers programming on the Microsoft .NET platform. Hosts: Carl Franklin and Richard Campbell.

This Week in Tech
The first (I think) podcast from TWiT.TV. General tech-talk show where they talk about anything. Popular topics are Kindle (from Amazon), Google Wave and Snow Leopard. Hosts: Leo Laporte, Patrick Norton and John C. Dvorak.
