This post lists some of my podcast recommendations on:
- Personal finance investing
- General investing
I spend a lot of time passive listening and active listening to podcasts, so expect my recommendations to be updated. I basically leave it on as background noise.
I love to learn.
When I subscribe to a podcast, I listen to as far back as possible. If podcasts have their first episode available to listen, then I start there. For some podcasts, they removed early episodes.
Best Personal Finance and Personal Investing Podcasts
- Afford Anything by Paula Pant – covers a variety of investing topics including real estate. I have taken notes listening to this podcast.
- Choose FI – discovered this podcast during my podcast audio binge and noticed it’s high ratings on iTunes so I figured I would give it a try. Only a couple dozen episodes in and already I have taken notes.
- InvestED by Phil Town and Danielle Town – topics can be a bit overwhelming and advanced at times. I have taken notes listening to this podcast. Phil will go into the weeds so if you are new, come back to this podcast later. However, it helps that Danielle will help dumb it down for investors like me that might not know exactly how to calculate advanced metrics quickly that experienced investors like Phil knows how.
- Listen Money Matters by Andrew Fiebert and Thomas Frank – covers a variety of investing topics. Uncensored commentary means nothing to me. Give me good, relevant content and that is what they do.
- Mad Fientist – one of the most well known personal finance bloggers. Episodes are released infrequently, but when they are, content is solid.
- So Money with Farnoosh Torabi – covers a range of investing topics. What stands out about this podcast are the interviews and the thoughtful questions. A good, confident, thoughtful interviewer is so important. I have taken notes listening to this podcast.
- Stacking Benjamins with Joe Saul-Sehy – very informative but at times it feels as though they get into the weeds a bit and some episodes are geared more towards advanced investors.
- The Dave Ramsey Show – one of the most well known financial guru and this podcast is mostly a Q&A show. Although topics can be repetitive with the “baby steps, this is the one podcast that really motivated me to get out of the debt quickly. Those “baby steps” is stuck in my head, but what really put things into perspective are the “debt screams”. If households who make a combined $40,000 can get out of a $40,000 debt in a couple years, why can’t I? So motivating. I have taken notes listening to this podcast.
- The Scott Alan Turner Show – the personality of the host is energetic. The format of this show is mostly Q&A. Unlike The Dave Ramsey Show, the variety of questions and answers are more wide ranging. I have taken notes listening to this podcast.
- The Side Hustle Show by Nick Loper – if you ever want to leave your day job, make extra income, or pursue financial freedom, this podcast will give you lots of motivation to take action.
- We Study Billionaires by Preston Pysh and Stig Brodersen – the hosts do a great job of interviewing and providing incredibly detailed insights especially on book reviews. Sometimes they have guests who are dry and topics I have absolutely no interest in such as Japan’s debt. Having the listener Q&A at the end (usually the last 5-10 min) is excellent. I have taken notes listening to this podcast.
