"The Top Coding Podcast This show is great. If your interested in any aspect of coding I would highly recommend. The topics covered sometimes cover specific topic in specific languages however a majority of conversation cover ideas and patterns around managing data solutions, class interactions, and designing how business logic flows though an application. As well as general rants about bad practices, insane ideas on how to organize your classes, and hardware that will have you reaching for your wallet."
