Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

In a similar vein to the question blogs to follow to further learning, I would like to ask if there are any noteworthy testing podcasts? Searching in iTunes domes up pretty empty on the topic.

I know there are heaps of development ones, are there any good testing podcasts?

Note: This would be community wiki, but the feature on questions appears to have been removed.

I did find the explanations you provided insightful and cogent. – user1289 Sep 12 '11 at 13:56

I'll second Taruns answer of google video & CodingQA - the CodingQA guys are a really likeable duo just putting their ideas across. they don't claim to be experts, just imparting knowledge on how they operate & their understanding of testing methodologies.

I find itunes proves more fruitful if you search for actual topics, as opposed to high level subject areas.

My search for "agile testing" & "software testing" turned up limited results, but when I searched for things like "exploratory testing", "james bach", "Cem Kaner", "James Whittaker" I had better luck.

I try to search for podcasts which will answer a question I'm currently rolling around in my head - for example, I'm currently learning about exploratory testing & after searching around google I now have a range of buzzwords (see above) which I search for in itunes.

That google video link goes to an empty show. – Bruce McLeod May 11 '11 at 9:35
No it does not, I checked it again. Do you get 404? Can you try to check if it down only for you? – Tarun May 11 '11 at 9:48
No the link works, but there are zero shows, you follow the link on the page and then it goes to a 404 on – Bruce McLeod May 11 '11 at 9:52

If you don't mind the german accent of the interviewer there is some realy valuable information in there. Some other episode metion it as wel just search the site.

They are mostly developer testing focused, I was hoping for something testing specific. – Bruce McLeod May 11 '11 at 9:37

I did a quick round up of podcasts and videos a few months back -
