How podcasts can help you learn Elixir and become a better developer

Some types of knowledge are better shared and learned through long-duration audios, known as podcasts. The Elixir community is rich in podcasts. We have 5 active podcasts: Elixir Talk, Elixir Mix, Elixir Outlaws, Elixir Wizards and Thinking Elixir. In this talk I will describe these podcasts and show how they can help us to be better software developers.
