Podcasts can be valuable resources for learning new skills, staying on top of trends in your industry or just keeping busy while you’re at the gym or in the car. But with over 2 million active podcasts and more than 48 million podcast episodes out there, it’s difficult to just choose one and press play. For leaders in the tech industry, insights range from high level strategy to completely in the weeds and span thousands of sub-topics.

To help you narrow down the choices, here are a few of my favorite podcasts that cover the intersection of technology and business for people like myself whose interests straddle both.


Veteran industry analyst, writer and advisor Michael Krigsman has interviewed hundreds of senior executives for this show. Guests include business and technology leaders such as Bruno Aziza, head of data and analytics for Google Cloud, and Satyan Parameswaran, President of Information Technology at UPS. They touch on topics such as digital transformation and the impacts of AI, data science and evolving business models.

Digital: Disrupted

The Digital: Disrupted podcast is hosted by Paul Muller, founder of Denting the Universe and startup mentor. Paul is not afraid to challenge guests to get them to dive deeper into the topics of digital transformation and explore what the buzzword really means for businesses. Listen for actionable insights and new perspectives on topics such as diversity in tech, information security, data analytics and more. Recent guests include Doug Laney, the creator of infonomics, and Andrew Winston, author of Net Positive. I even joined Paul for an episode to discuss hybrid cloud; give it a listen here!
