Favorite Podcasts I Found In 2018

I meant to put this post up toward the end of 2018, but it’s been crazy lately. I am a big fan of podcasts and I have been listening to podcasts for almost half of my life. There are some podcasts that I have been following for a long time, such as those on the Twit Network or some churches that I have visited in the past. I haven’t really found any new podcasts that I have enjoyed lately until last year. I discovered three last year that I thought were very cool and informative. Two of which are China related and one strictly internet related. Oh by the way, if you are wondering what podcasting app I use, I used to use Pocketcast, but I don’t like some of their new UI tweaks, so I went back to Downcast.

Apparently Tech Node is a Chinese branch of Tech Crunch. I have really enjoyed their podcasts because they talk about some of the new startups in China, some new APPS or new features of some older apps. It’s a nice way for me to keep up with what’s happening in the Tech space in the Mainland. I’ve even brought up some of these topics with my Chinese co-workers, it makes me seem like I’m knowledgeable about whats happening in China. (^o^)v

The next podcast is kind of a new podcast, but this team of people have been covering China for several years. I know some people may find this pick controversial, but I think they do offer a pretty non-bias view on China. There have been times where I think they kind of go too far in their jokes. If you listen to this podcast though, try to remember this is a SATIRICAL (讽刺性的) podcast about China. Maybe the way it is presented sometimes is over the top, but the topics are still important issues that need to be talked about.

The last podcast I would like to recommend has been around for a while, but I am just now finding out about it. IRL is a podcast sponsored by the Mozilla Foundation. It’s primary focus is on how technology is changing our lives and I appreciate it’s focus on the social changes that technology is bringing to our lives. There is no doubt that tech definitely has it’s positive aspects to society, but there are also many negative aspects that come along with it.

Either way, these are the four latest podcasts I have in my podcatcher app. Please check them out if any of them sound interesting! You can read a little about the descriptions I included in each screenshot to get a better idea of how each podcast might be like.
