best personal finance podcasts

One of the best ways to learn about personal finance is by listening to podcasts. Most podcast episodes range anywhere from 20 minutes to over an hour and cover all sorts of money topics from budgeting and saving to investing and building a stable and profitable career.

I’ve hosted a podcast, Millennial Money, for over four years now, and have had the pleasure of interviewing all the hosts mentioned below. With financial literacy numbers at an all-time low, it is always great to see so many money experts doing their part to spread financial literacy to the masses.

Whether you are a newbie to investing or a seasoned pro, the "Invested" podcast should be in your rotation. "Invested" is hosted by a father and daughter duo who chronicle their journey in the investing world, interview the leading investing experts and cover hot topics like the infamous Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting. "Invested" started as an experiment for Danielle as she was learning the investing ropes. Danielle and Phil even turned their knowledge from the podcast into a New York Times best-selling book, Invested: How Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger Taught Me to Master My Mind, My Emotions, and My Money. This podcast is excellent for someone who wants to grow his or her investing practice.
