Learn on the Go

I'm a big fan of what the late Zig Ziglar called "Automobile University". Basically, listening to educational tapes and CD's in your car.

The modern-day version of this is listening to podcasts on your device. My commute right now is about 45 minutes each way. This amounts to 7.5 hours of commuting each week.

The curriculum for my "Automobile University" consists of these podcasts:

Some of these podcasts publish shows on a weekly basis, others monthly and yet some others kind of randomly. I don't find every episode interesting. So, having a large list like this helps keep the interesting content flowing every time I jump in the car.

There's a lot to be said about listening to smart people talk about technology. It has helped me become a better software developer.
