Entrepreneurs and hustlers are often said to be all about 24/7 continuous improvement, and immersing oneself in success stories, best practices, and expert advice on your own time is a big part of that.
Good thing we’re in the golden age of podcasts, which means boning up on business ‘haps doesn't have to be like eating your broccoli. But where to begin?
Business podcasts are one vast category in a sea of many, and the search can be overwhelming. (Trust us, we’ve been there.) Still, there’s no need to fear. We’ve done a lot of research, and a lot of listening—and have some good news: We’re happy to make some business news podcast recommendations for ya, right here, right now. You’re welcome.
Before we begin, though, let me be frank: We know there are a lot of business podcasts out there (including this one Supermaker recently launched). The first installment of this list is not explicitly focused on keeping you abreast of what’s trending in tech, or where you might go if you want to hear the stock market ticker read aloud. These business podcasts can be very focused on what’s happening in small segments of global business and the details of the day. These are the business podcasts that tell stories from a broader perspective and from places that might surprise you—you know, the ones that remind us of, I don’t know… say, This American Life.
In the business podcasts recommended here, you’ll find everything you love about This American Life or Radiolab or My Favorite Murder, like fascinating human-interest stories, brilliant audio production, thoughtful interviews, and a sense of drama. (And, yes, some of them even include murder.) Whether you’re a startup junkie or an aspiring branding guru, you’re sure to find something to inspire (and entertain!) you. Happy listening! (And: If you want ticker tape podcast recs, we can get you those, too. We’ll be updating this list periodically, so stay tuned!)
