I’d like to introduce you to my favorite podcasts in this article. They are almost all related to iOS development. If you’re interested in that field, you may find a new podcast. And I intend to update this article regularly. <5/5> means a five star rating in my opinion.


- Build Phase

Build Phase is a weekly technical podcast discussing iOS development and design. Hosted by iOS developers Mark Adams, Jack Nutting, and Gordon Fontenot.

Their topics are not only about iOS development but also about functional programming, Vim, Elm and so on. I really like their personality and the atmosphere in their conversation. Their episodes are less than 30 ~ 40 minutes, so these are very listenable for me.

- Under the Radar

From development and design to marketing and support, Under the Radar is all about independent app development. It’s never longer than 30 minutes.

Actually, I’m a big fan of Marco Arment. They’re not talking about new things like a Swift’s new feature now, but they have great knowledge of iOS app development and iOS market. I always use Overcast that Marco created.

- Runtime

Sam Soffes and Caleb Davenport talk about Swift, iOS, and other things they like.

I think this is newer podcast than others. They discuss Swift’s new proposal and hot news in Swift developing. If you catch up with new features in Swift 3 and 4, I recommend to listen this podcast. Personally, I like the introduction music in this podcast:)
