Everyone’s love of podcasts is growing and growing! As is the quality and quantity of them. We thought we’d share with you a selection of tech podcasts – some made by women, for women, some featuring great women, some for the techies out there… and some a wonderful combination of all of that!
Women In Tech
Made by women, for women and about women in tech!
“A podcast about what we work on, not what it feels like to be a woman in tech”. Hosted by Edaena Salinas, a software developer – this is all about women’s work in technology. A great choice for every woman sick of being asked “what does it feel like to be a woman in tech?”
Women Tech Charge (UK)
Here’s one not to miss! Especially with such a ‘punny’ title. Unless you’ve spent the last few years in a cave, you’ll have heard of Stemettes. Well their Founder, Dr. Anne – Marie Imafidon MBE delivers us a series of candid, inspiring and often funny conversations with inventors, entrepreneurs and even real-life spies.
Yes, this is a different podcast! The founder of WeAreLATech, Espree Devora created this podcast so every listener gets to walk away feeling “If She Can Do It So Can I”. We appreciate that intention. Devora discusses with women from all walks of tech life how they got where they are now.
Here’s a few examples of tech podcasts, not by or for women – but featuring great women as guests.
