As the WordPress community grows, so does its demand for new and better content.

One of the best ways to get this content across to a large audience in a quick and efficient way is with a podcast. WordPress podcasts are growing in popularity, as are their hosts.

Most of the top podcasts are hosted by some of the best WordPress minds out there, ranging from Chris Lema to Pippin Williamson himself. This is a testament to the value of this mode of communication.

While certain podcasts have simply run out of juice over the past few years and have sometimes completely come to a halt, others have grown into fixed weekly shows. New podcasts with varying content have also been introduced, taking the place of the ones that shut down.

This variety of shows, subjects and hosts has led us to creating this list of the best WordPress podcasts out there right now. So here you go.

Matt Report

matt-report

Hosted by: Matt Medeiros

“I started the Matt Report podcast in October of 2012 and it quickly grew to one of the most popular WordPress podcasts available.

How did I start? I just grabbed the mic, hit up the first WordPress professional on my list and turned the camera on. From there it was a bit of a blur. Before I knew it, I was interviewing 2 -3 amazing WordPress entrepreneurs every week. I started gaining traction in the WordPress community and began helping others that wanted to fine tune their WordPresss business.

First time WordPress startups and services came knocking as well.

Matt Report became my outlet to connect with the community and help others while spreading the good gospel of using WordPress to publish and make a living. A fun ride and fulfilling journey all at the same time.”

Your Website Engineer

yourwebsiteengineer

Hosted by: Dustin Hartzler

“The show started back in 2010 and has been released every Wednesday since. I try to share at least one main topic per show, to help you focus / learn how to do one thing each week. I also field listeners questions in the show as well.

All of the episodes have great content; however, the newer shows will have my current solutions, so please keep that in mind while listening to past shows. If you are relatively new to WordPress, go back into the archives and listen to the first six episodes. This will give you a great background on WordPress and how to prepare for your website. Then, I’d recommend listening to the most recent episode and working through the archives in reverse chronological order.”

WordPress Plugins A-Z

Hosted by: John Overall & Marcus Couch

“Why do we exist? Well no one knows that for sure, but the reason this great site is here is due to the efforts of John Overall. He had a minor vision of a great podcast that morphed into a great website.

The grand purpose of this site is pretty simple, I thought it would be a great place for people to find out more about plugins. After having a very successful time with the podcast I felt it was time to add to it by creating a website that would allow the sharing of information and be a great place to find those plugins that are talked about on the show.”

The WordPress Chick

podcasts-the-wordpress-chick

Hosted by: Kim Doyal

“Here’s the funny thing about “The WordPress Chick” – I LITERALLY did NOT know what I was doing (with WordPress) when I bought that domain name!

I had another ‘chick’ site that someone else had created for me, was working my way through figuring out how to use it and the name just came to me. Needless to say the other ‘chick’ site kind of fell to the wayside.

Fast forward 4 years later and I’ve carved out a little niche (my not-so-secret Love of StudioPress & Genesis) in this HUGE space that is WordPress!”
