Have you ever tried to listen to podcasts? For some, it is the most convenient way to dig into 3D printing. This is not only because it is possible to listen while doing something else, like driving, working, or burning calories. 3D printing podcasts offer “news on-demand” service to listeners. See the lists of podcasts below.

Freshest News on the Subject
In the age of the “algorithms”, it takes a lot of time to create a quality article or a YouTube video. Even a social media post, in order to receive the desired attention, needs to be done with a good story and well-edited visual material. A podcast doesn’t need any visual “click-bait” content, therefore podcasts may deliver information much quicker. Hosts are eager to dig out the latest 3D printing related news that is suitable for designers and makers, and even for researchers and manufacturers, saving a lot of time by doing so.
3D Printing Podcasts – At Your Convenience
We are subscribed to many wonderful 3D printing content creators on YouTube. Notifications (The Bell) is switched on as we don’t want to miss anything. And thus our email Inbox folder gets filled up quicker than we are able to go through it. We have no option but to scroll through the titles and drop some content, less important for us. This may leave a bad feeling that we might’ve missed something. We looked into podcasts and realized that this can be a solution. Here are a few examples where podcasts are convenient.
– Workout – Taking regular breaks from the monitor to get some blood circulation, burn calories and rest the eyes is important for everyone, especially for 3D designers. Exercise bike or treadmill is ideal but too bulky and may be expensive. Jogging or cycling safely in the local park listening to a 3D printing podcast would be the 2-in-1 solution.
– Job – If you can listen to the radio at your workplace, then it is very likely you could listen to podcasts.
– Driving – Long-distance road trips may be accompanied by podcasts.
So basically, in any case where you can listen to the radio safely, that may be replaced by more targeted on-demand content.
YouTube as Podcasts’ Network
As we mentioned above, podcasts don’t shift the importance of video or images as seeing products is very important in 3D printing. It may take a thousand words to describe something, what can be done very easily with one single image or a video. What we want to point out is that there is an increasing number of cases when podcasters use YouTube as a podcasting platform. Originally, podcasts meant to be published on platforms such as Apple iTunes or Spotify.

Maker That Money
Andrew Mayhall @3DGloop and Alan Puccinelli @Repkord are the hosts of Maker That Money, a podcast about their experiences as small business owners. Both Alan and Andrew got their start as makers, and they share their stories and insights on the show. In each episode, they offer unsolicited opinions on a variety of topics, including business advice and marketing tips. Whether you’re a maker yourself or just curious about the world of entrepreneurship in 3D printing, Maker That Money is worth a listen.
3D Print Entrepreneurs
3D design and 3D printing pioneer Jason Wall (aka PrintThatThing) interviews 3D Print Entrepreneurs on ptt.live. We were delighted to see and listen to the 3D printing community members, about whom we have known for years but have never seen live before. For example, Cults3D co-founder Pierre, miniature 3D scanning specialist from Cokreeate Willy, filament specialist from Polymaker Nikolas, and other members. So, if you want to start a career in 3D printing, these are definitely the stories to listen to.
3D Print Authority
Adam Fasnacht promises transparent, no-BS conversations about 3D printing and the technology. And indeed, here you can listen to more technical conversations about 3D printing, 3D scanning and other niche innovations. The guests in the show are engineers and designers who share their stories and even trade secrets.
Hosted by the prominent YouTubers Stefan Hermann and Thomas Sanladerer. Can be used as an information tool. Sometimes up to two-hour-long video podcasts are neatly cut into multiple “Timestamps”. These allow to quickly scan the subjects and pick the ones especially important to the listener. It feels that the guys do some research on each subject.
