There’s a broad range of topics covered, including different cloud platforms, open source, serverless, AI, DevOps, security, Kubernetes, PaaS, SaaS, and IoT.

There’s two podcasts to be discussed here. First, let’s look at Screaming into the Cloud. These are regular weekly episodes, between 30-40 minutes long. Listeners can expect a friendly, humorous, and irreverent tone. However, it’s always clear what is being discussed. SITTC  interviews with cloud and business experts regarding the technology’s effect on business. These are conversations with how people are using the cloud, to either achieve certain goals or pursue other outcomes. The objective is to provide thoughtful commentary on the state of the technical world. Do note that some episodes have a more technical focus than others - it all depends on the topic. This podcast is recommended for those who have an intermediate-to-advanced understanding of cloud computing.

AWS Morning Brief is the sibling show to SITTC. This comes out a few times a week, and is around 5 minutes long. Like the name states, this is focused directly on the latest AWS news. Think product launches, updates, changes, and more. The tone is comedic with a knowing wink – just look at the episode titles! The snappy length makes it perfect to listen to with your morning coffee.
