Make way, radio! Podcasts are the future. According to Podcastinsights.com, 44% of the US population has listened to a podcast, with 26% listening at least monthly. And with over 18.5 million episodes available on iTunes alone, the numbers are only growing.
Many people listen to learn. Education is the second most popular genre of podcasting and financial education podcasts are some of the most popular. Whether you're an avid podcaster or new to the scene, here's a list of some of the most popular financial podcasts so you can spend that morning commute getting ahead.
1. Stacking Benjamins
The Stacking Benjamins crew takes financial literacy seriously... by joking about it. Hosts Joe and OG (an anonymous financial planner known as Other Guy) use jokes, short segments, and listener interaction to make talking about finances fun and approachable. Stacking Benjamins is the financial podcast for you if you think you'd hate a financial podcast.
2. So Money with Farnoosh Torabi
As Entrepreneur Magazine's #1 Female Hosted Podcast of 2017, So Money lives up to the hype. Twice a week Farnoosh interviews top business leaders as they share tips, tricks, and secrets of the trade. On Fridays, she interacts with listeners by answering listener mail. If you're looking for the inside scoop on what makes a successful business venture, you'll find it here.
3. NPR's Planet Money
Planet Money goes in depth, and I mean really in depth, when it comes to how our economy works. They wanted to trace the supply chain of a cotton t shirt so they made one, tracked it around the world, and reported on it (I wasn't joking about going in depth). This Peabody award winning podcast is a fun and exciting look into how our economy works.
4. The Tim Ferriss Show
As the first business podcast to pass 100,000,000 downloads, The Tim Ferriss Show means business (literally). Each episode, Tim chats with world-class performers in all areas ranging from business to art to sports. Tim finds positive tactics each successful person uses and passes them along to the listener. This isn't a "get rich quick" type of show. Instead, Tim simply wants to share tools and routines that will get you ahead in life.
5. TEDTalks Business
If you're familiar with the original TEDTalks, you'll know each episode involves a speaker sharing ideas in a short, but powerful talk. Each talk is eighteen minutes or less, making them perfect for short commutes. Well, TEDTalks Business is the same concept, but is comprised of business leaders, entrepreneurs, and innovators sharing their successes, failures, insights, and ideas.
6. The Dave Ramsey Show
Is a financial podcast blog even a financial podcast blog without Dave Ramsey? That answer is no! Dave Ramsey is the king of personal finances. Dave's podcast teaches listeners how to manage and budget money, get out of debt, build wealth, and live in financial peace. People live by it. People swear by it! Are you ready to join them?
