As I mentioned in my last post I listen to a lot of different podcasts on my way to and from work. I thought it would be interesting to list them out and a rough explanation of what they are.

Hosted by the amazing Michael Chan each episode Michael interviews someone of note in the React world. From library authors to the React core team. He has also branched our to tech related to React such as Gatsby and GraphQL.
A really cool podcast from the open source team at facebook. Many of the episodes follow the beginning of tech that has come from facebook and now open sources and used my many. A really good listen if you like to know the history of the tech you use.

For anyone who loves to know the origin or a work this podcast is a must. Hosted by Susie Dent and Gyles Brandreth from countdown fame.
