Listening to Kubernetes podcasts is a great way to supplement learning about the technology alongside reading about it and actually using it. Since being open-sourced in 2015, there have been a number of podcasts released specifically focused on Kubernetes.
Here are 6 Kubernetes podcasts that you can listen to today.
1. Kubernetes podcast from Google
The Kubernetes Podcast from Google is hosted by Craig Box and typically comes out weekly. It only makes sense that Google, the company that created Kubernetes, offers a podcast focused on the technology. Guests include DevOps engineers from companies such as Red Hat, Podman, Twitter, Airbnb, and more.
Episodes dating back to 2018 talk about how companies use Kubernetes, updates from the community, new products and applications, and much more.
You can find the Kubernetes Podcast from Google at kubernetespodcast.com, Google Podcasts, Apple, and Spotify.
2. The Kubelist podcast
Kubelist—which was created by Replicated, Shipyard, and snyk—offers two things: a Kubernetes newsletter and a Kubernetes podcast.
The Kubelist Podcast is hosted by Marc Campbell and Benjie De Groot and includes guests that are CNCF project leads and contributors from companies such as Google, Sysdig, and Spotify. Episodes mostly focus on CNCF project updates but also include more general Kubernetes discussions.
New episodes come out at somewhat irregular intervals but you can expect about one new episode per week.
