I wanted to share my Top 6 favorite financial podcasts so far this year! There were so many to choose from so making this list was hard. I am one of those people that listens to podcasts whenever I get the chance whether it's in the car, sitting at my desk, or just cleaning the house, I'm always listening. These podcasts give such good information that they inspired me to start my own. Without further ado, here is the list:


  1. The Dave Ramsey show - This show really inspired me to take a closer look at my finances. Listening to the debt free screams and the questions from live callers prompted me to start this financial journey. Sometimes you know you have to do something but it takes hearing from someone else that's in your same shoes to take action. I have listened day in and day out to how Dave coaches people and encourages them to get on the right track and it made me want to do the same. I highly recommend The Dave Ramsey Show if you are currently working through paying off debt and need some inspiration!
  2. The Stacking Benjamins Show - I like this show because they infuse comedy into financial topics. Although they talk about serious subjects, they have Doug, the host, who is so goofy and two main speakers, Joe and OG, who give great information (and are also funny in their own right). The guests that they have on the show are great quality. A lot of them are founders or CEOs of  fintech companies. I highly recommend The Stacking Benjamins show if you know a moderate amount about finance and want to learn more.
  3. The Clark Howard Podcast - This show is all about saving money and, if you know me, you know that's my favorite thing to do! From the show I learned about freezing credit(another post is coming about that), Google flights, and other money saving tips. He also talks about the current scams that are going on in the US. I highly recommend The Clark Howard Podcast if you're interested in unique ways to save money and are always looking for the best deal a.k.a frugal. 
  4. NPR's Planet Money - This show takes a more storytelling approach to money. They usually feature a certain topic and use stories and interviews to educate the audience. I love how they integrate everything together and make a seamless story every episode. If you are into history or learning about various money topics in a non-traditional way, this podcast is for you.
  5. Optimal Finance Daily - This podcast is unique because he simply narrates blog posts found online for you. I hope to be featured on one of their episodes soon! If you like to read blog posts but don't have the time or would rather listen, you would enjoy this podcast.
  6. Motley Fool Money - I just recently started listening to this one and I love it! They go into more advanced financial topics, mostly investing. They have a segment where they say what stocks they're watching and a lot of the ones they mention have not been on my radar (yet). So, it has been a good way to broaden my horizon. I highly recommend Motley Fool Money if you are very familiar with finance and financial terms. If not, you would probably be lost.

‚ÄčThere are many other podcasts that I enjoy listening to but I will stop there. Maybe, I will do a part two to this post that includes some more favorites.

Do you have any podcasts that you listen to that I didn't mention? Please comment below and let me know. I am always looking for some new suggestions.

Don't miss a talk!
