If you’re reading this, you probably make money. Besides your nine-to-five, you may also have investments, property, gold doubloons, and a slew of financial questions. While we love reading personal finance blogs (and writing personal finance advice), blogs aren’t always convenient. That’s a problem podcasts can solve. You can listen to a podcast while doing almost anything – washing dishes, driving to work, riding your bike.
We put together this list of the 9 best podcasts about money, split into three groups: personal finance, investing, and big picture. Together, they’ll give you a comprehensive financial education, all without costing you a dime. Your wallet will thank us later.
