Podcasts are one of my favorite content mediums, and I know I’m not alone. Podcasts are inexpensive, typically free, they’re incredibly diverse, they’re usually updated on a daily or weekly basis, and you can listen to them while doing other things—like driving, doing chores, or exercising. Here are ten entrepreneur podcasts every founder should listen to.
As an entrepreneur, podcasts are even more important, since they’re perfect ways to feed your ever-growing hunger for more information. But with more than a million podcasts with more than 30 million individual episodes, it’s hard to know where to begin if you’re looking for an entrepreneur podcast to help guide your entrepreneurial endeavors.
I’ve assembled this list of my top 10 favorite podcasts for entrepreneurs.
Top Entrepreneur Podcasts
These are some of the best podcasts for entrepreneurs currently available:
1. The Entrepreneur Cast
They give a firsthand perspective on the biggest challenges new entrepreneurs face, and they offer a fresh, front-line perspective as business owners who have both created (and sold) successful businesses, authored best-selling books, and are currently active in their own businesses.
2. The Tim Ferriss Show
3. Marketing School
Neil and Eric pack a ton of useful content into each episode, cutting out all the fluff until all that’s left is pure, dense, knowledge from the minds of two marketing experts.
4. Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders
5. Planet Money: The Indicator
Planet Money is a great podcast by itself if you’re interested in learning more about the economy, but The Indicator is even better for entrepreneurs. Every weekday, you’ll get a bite-sized chunk of content, which can include interviews, news, and even interactive games.
No matter what, you’ll walk away with a better understanding of the current economy, and some new things you can try as a business leader.
6. Smart Passive Income
7. How to Start a Startup
8. The James Altucher Show
It’s all about achieving greatness, establishing financial freedom, and finding your own path.
9. How I Built This
It’s always a great way to remind yourself that amazing companies and entrepreneurs often have humble beginnings and there are solid lessons to learn from each episode.
10. The GaryVee Audio Experience
