List of Mobile App, Game Development, Game Design, VR, & AR Podcasts
I have had the pleasure to enjoy listening to quite a few mobile app and game development podcasts over the years. Some of the below are more business-oriented, some pertain to game design, and others are more general in nature. I would suggest for you to balance your repertoire with a mix of subjects. Also, please note that some of the below may be inactive or retired, in which case you can still listen to previous episodes.
