My journey with personal finance podcasts began while I was travelling for my dietetic internship. I’m always trying to find ways to multi-task. I like being productive ALL THE TIME. And I love learning. So if I’m learning while I’m driving, I’m killing like 3 birds with one stone! Its a win win.

And best of all??? Podcasts are FREE 99.

If you have an iPhone, there is a little purple app that says Podcast underneath it. (I didn’t know it was there until 3 years ago either).

You can use the Stitcher or Spotify app if you have Android.

Use iTunes if you want to listen from your computer.

My favorite Personal Finance Podcast Shows

personal finance podcasts favorites

(1) The Money Nerds with Whitney Hansen

This is the first personal finance podcast that I was referred to. I love it because Whitney always has entertaining guests. Her guests have real life stories of how they dug their way out of debt and are now living a life they love building their businesses or achieving financial independence.

Listening to Whitney is what whipped me into shape and made me create my 1st budget.

My Top 5 Fave Episodes:

  1. Getting Financially Naked With Erin Lowry from Broke Millennial
  2. How To Deal with Massive Student Debt | Travis Hornsby

She also has a 5 tip Friday series that I LOVE because it gives quick, actionable tips to help you declutter and improve your life in general.

Be sure to look back in the archives, there are GREAT episodes beyond what the iPhone Podcast app allows you to see.

(2) FIRE Drill with Julie from Millennial Boss

I happened to find the Fire Drill Podcast from listening to The Money Nerds Podcast!

When I started listening, it was the Gwen and J show. They have quite a few guests on that have side hustle stories and inspiration. The drive to start my blog definitely came from this podcast!

As well as, after listening to the podcast for so long and knowing the value of the content the creators put out, as soon as Julie launched her Blogging for Profit Side Hustle Course, I was already sold!

They are sadly not offering the Blogging For Profit course at this time but they are offering The Etsy Printables Side Hustle Course. Which I took and LOVED and have a course review here.

My Top 5 Fave Episodes:

  1. How Randa built a food blog for passive income and the gift of travel – The Bewitchin’ Kitchen

(5) Marriage, Kids, & Money with Andy HIll

Andy’s personal finance podcast is a favorite of mine because he always has tips for teaching his kids about money. This is something that is super important to me as a mom of a toddler.

I want to start teaching him early about money. I want him to respect money and use it as a tool to be successful in life rather than something than something that governs him.

Marriage, Kids, and Money also features guests that discuss how they overcame budgeting issues with their partner/spouse. Also useful if you’re having trouble getting your spouse on board with your financial goals.

Andy and his wife have increased their net worth by $900k in 9 years. The podcast also features content on topics surrounding investing, financial freedom, and even why Multi-Level Marketing is maybe not a good way to go as far as increasing your income.

(6) The Side Hustle Show with Nick Loper

This personal finance podcast is ALL about helping you find a side hustle. Remember, sides hustles are a way to increase your income? or help you start investing or quit your day job, etc., etc.

Before I found this show, I was already trying like 4 different side hustles and now I have a zillion more pretty attractive ideas. Most of them are WORK FROM HOME opportunities too. Build that Laptop Empire!

(7) Laptop Empires with Mike Yanda & Bobby Hoyt

The Laptop Empires Podcast has more content surrounding building your side hustle business and side hustle ideas. I found this podcast after purchasing, The Facebook Side Hustle Course in March. Mike and Bobby specialize in Facebook Ads, helping bloggers grow their blog, building businesses by creating agencies.

I love this show because many times it is just Mike and Bobby telling us what they know and have experienced real-life! That is some of the most valuable information.
