Best Tech Podcasts This Week – 06/26/23

The Tech Tribune staff has compiled a list of the best new tech podcasts released in the last week (as of the time of writing):

“Do you listen at 2x? Do Chris and Dave sound weird at normal speed IRL? How searching compares to using AI, chatbots kind of suck at context, getting a designer to work with developers at an agency, what happened to content visibility, and how to best build a design system using web components.”

“Akin Babayigit is a serial entrepreneur and an active angel investor. He is currently the Founder and COO of Tripledot Studios, one of the fastest-growing mobile gaming companies in the world, which was recently valued at over $1.4BN. In just 4 years, Tripledot grew to generate several hundred million dollars per year in revenue and currently entertains over 50 million people every month. Tripledot was recently named as the #1 fastest-growing European company by FT, as well as being named as the fastest-growing Tech business in the UK, in the annual “UK Tech Awards”.”

“If you’ve used the term Tech Debt, you probably know that the metaphor is loose at best. Taking on tech debt sometimes becomes a permanent choice, and the repayment isn’t always a clear-cut investment. Most importantly, the concept of “debt” doesn’t as easily take into account the human factors involved.”

“AI is all around us and everyone is talking about it. As a developer, what do we actually need to know to start developing for and with AI? Are we data scientists? Are we prompt engineers? Or are we just consumers of APIs? We discuss in this week’s pod.”

“Google Cloud has a new artificial-intelligence tool that tackles money laundering for banks. But how does this product differ from those already on the market? WSJ reporter Dylan Tokar joins host Julie Chang to discuss.”

“Every year we become increasingly aware of the urgency of the climate crisis, and with that, the need to usher in renewable energies and scale their adoption has never been more important. However, as we look at the ways to scale the adoption of renewable energy, data stands out as a key lever to accelerate a greener future.”

“Are you a “Field of Dreams” marketer? Someone who thinks, “If I build it, they will come.” I was for a long time. Sometimes it feels like I still am. That’s why I was excited to talk to Julian Garsdean. He blends psychology and business in a way I haven’t seen before to help business owners stand out and sell more. As creators, we can learn a ton from addressing the 6 basic needs in our own content and products.”

“Paul Asadoorian, OG security podcaster and host of the popular Paul’s Security Weekly podcast, joins us in this episode to talk about his career as one of the original security podcasters. Paul’s been podcasting for more then 17 years! Paul also shares with us some of his greatest hacking stories and don’t miss our lively discussion about the state of firmware security.”

“Much has been written about the myriad of payment methods for consumers in the past few years. But not enough has been done to help them manage the increasingly complex landscape of bill pay. Enter Cushion, a fintech company that acts as a one-stop shop for recurring expenses, giving consumers more visibility and control over their bills, including Buy Now, Pay Later. In this episode of One Vision, Theo and Barb chat with Paul Kesserwani, Founder and CEO of Cushion, on building new payment rails, fundraising, complexity of building a BNPL aggregator, and the future of AI and automation.”

“Data transformation is a key activity for all of the organizational roles that interact with data. Because of its importance and outsized impact on what is possible for downstream data consumers it is critical that everyone is able to collaborate seamlessly. SQLMesh was designed as a unifying tool that is simple to work with but powerful enough for large-scale transformations and complex projects. In this episode Toby Mao explains how it works, the importance of automatic column-level lineage tracking, and how you can start using it today.”
