In general, these sorts of questions are discouraged on the main site - but they can be a good avenue for community building and discussion on the meta site or in chat.
It's important to remember that the hope is that questions and answers on this site be somewhat timeless. While we know that technology changes and solutions can morph as things change, questions like this are inherently going to cease being useful - and soon.
What podcast I'm listening to now will be useless to people in 2-5 years when those podcasts are no longer around!
Also, the tags mentioned in your answer are what we refer to as "meta tags" - tags that classify the type of question rather than being related to the subject of the question itself. These sorts of tags (e.g. "beginner" or "best-practices") are generally strongly discouraged and have been since early days.
Here's a blog post written by Jeff Atwood called "The Death of Meta Tags" and the main point of the post:
From this point on, meta-tagging is explicitly discouraged.
How can you tell you’re using a meta-tag? It’s easier than you might think.
- If the tag can’t work as the only tag on a question, it’s probably a meta-tag. Every tag you use should be able to work, more or less, as the only tag on a question. Meta-tags, like [beginner], [subjective], and [best-practices], are useless by themselves — they tell you nothing at all about the content of the question.
So, while these are "discouraged" and you can opt to ignore this, it's at least worth mentioning that we've gone down this path before on other sites and it's kinda something we find doesn't generally work well.
So, while we won't explicitly prohibit y'all from having these questions, I'm going to at least discourage it.
- Give your site room to grow and be a truly objective site.
- Avoid questions that won't be useful in a few years.
- If you want to link to good resources like blogs or podcasts, do it on meta.
