Mission:
For a long time, tech culture has focused too narrowly on technical skills; this has resulted in a tech community that too often puts companies and code over people. Greater Than Code is a podcast that invites the voices of people who are not heard from enough in tech: women, people of color, trans and/or queer folks, to talk about the human side of software development and technology. Greater Than Code is providing a vital platform for these conversations, and developing new ideas of what it means to be a technologist beyond just the code.
Featuring an ongoing panel of racially and gender diverse tech panelists, the majority of podcast guests so far have been women in tech! We’ve covered topics including imposter syndrome, mental illness, sexuality, unconscious bias and social justice. We also have a major focus on skill sets that tech too often devalues, like team-building, hiring, community organizing, mentorship and empathy. Each episode also includes a transcript.
Community:
We have an active Slack community that members can join by pledging as little as $1 per month via Patreon. (https://www.patreon.com/greaterthancode) Currently, we are listener-funded for two episodes per month.
For Prospective Sponsors:
Each show costs roughly $500 to produce. This includes, show management, audio editing, writing and publishing of show notes, writing and publishing of transcripts, guest outreach and scheduling, guest preparation, and community management. All told, each episode requires between 10-12 hours worth of work. If you are interested in sponsoring us for any amount, please reach out to Mandy via our contact form.

Voices you won’t hear elsewhere

I've been noticing recently that many other tech podcasts seem to draw from the same pool of people over and over. These are the same people who I see over and over on my Twitter feed (if I follow them or not) and while they are bright and have a lot to offer, I can't help but feel if the industry is limiting itself in who we lift up. Some of those folks have been on this podcast too, but there's a lot of other folks I wouldn’t know about otherwise. Its why when I scroll through my podcast feed to decide what to listen to in the morning, GTC is usually top of my list.

Authentic and open

Even with the increased attention and conversation about diversity and all the other 'human' aspects of tech; there is still a lack of truly authentic conversation with people in the trenches. Greater Than Code is goinf a long way to fill that void. The level on honesty and vulnerability by the panelists makes the show.

Hello Rocket ,

Anything with Saron Yitbarek is awesome.

Love Code Newbie. Love Basecs. And now I love this.

She is a wicked educator, a dazzling entertainer, and a smooth orator.
