Vim Tips with Ben


This podcast is no longer maintained, and the last episode was on 2016, but if you are trying to learn Vim, this is absolutely high up there in what you need to listen to.

I recommend listening to all the episodes, since there are only a few. with Drew Neil


This is yet another unmaintained but great podcast on Vim.
