Planet Money from NPR offers bite-sized chunks of money and economic news from around the globe. Listening in is a great way to get the big picture of what’s happening in the financial realm. From US tax codes to China’s economy and a breakdown of popular personal finance advice, you can get a taste of just about any money topic.
The Best One Yet
Popular stock market brokerage Robinhood sponsors The Best One Yet, formerly known as Robinhood Snacks. Hosted by Jack Crivici-Cramer and Nick Martel, the pod is self-billed as a “20-minute pop-biz podcast.” With the top three business news stories of the day, you can stay on top of what’s happening in the money world, helping you inform your personal finance decisions.
Financial independence, also sometimes known as FIRE (financial independence, retire early), can seem radical to some. But even if you fall into that camp, there are plenty of tips, nuggets, and tidbits to take away on saving, earning, and hacking your way to a more significant account balance. Choose FI is one of the best podcasts focused on the concept.
You Need a Budget
When you hear words of truth, it’s a good idea to listen, and You Need a Budget (YNAB to fans) hits it right on the nose with their name. Hosted by Jesse Mecham, this podcast focuses on getting out of debt, saving more, and breaking away from paycheck-to-paycheck living. Episodes alternate from more meaty 30-minute-plus recordings and bite-sized 5-to-10-minute ones that answer single user-submitted questions.
The Ramsey Show
Dave Ramsey is a personal finance legend, best known for helping people pay off debt with his hard-lined advice and no-nonsense talk. But even if you’re happy spending responsibly with your credit cards and feel good about your home mortgage interest rate, his hard-hitting podcast can give you insight into your finances.
