10 Podcasts for Developers in 2020

Podcasts are extremely popular among many developers and technology evangelists. Many podcasts have been growing followers and building communities exponentially as new topics and technology become composed. Developers are able to do live broadcasts and host "question and answer" type sessions making the experience of a podcast quickly likened. I am an active podcast listener myself and I normally like to segment into different topics and learn about a variety of new and changing topics in the software ecosystem. In this article, I chose some of the most interesting, relevant podcasts that I feel you should be listening to in 2020.
