Web development is a fast-changing industry. In order to stay up-to-date, you have to constantly stay informed with the latest and greatest in web development. One of the best ways to do so is to subscribe to a podcast.

As we all know, podcast is an amazing medium to get information and news, especially for those who are always on-the-go. Some podcast channels may come in audio only, while others come with videos. Since most of us own a smartphone or tablet, enjoying a podcast is really easy these days. All you need to do is to obtain the RSS URL and add it to the app, and the app will grab the latest episode of the podcast for you so you can tune in while commuting, while at work, or in the gym. Better still, some podcasts are available on iTunes!
