12 Top Personal Finance Podcasts to Help You Get Out of Debt and More

I know a lot of people have rough commutes.

After living in two major metropolitan areas and having to patiently ride out the commute to and from the office each day – I get it. 30 minutes here, 45 minutes there, and before you know it, you’re on the road for over an hour everyday.

That said, I often look forward to my commuting time for a few reasons.

First, I can spend time easing into my day in the morning, or switching gears to focus on other things such as education or creative thinking.

Sometimes I do that with silence. However, much of the time, I listen to my favorite podcasts. As I mentioned, my evening commute is an opportunity for me to be educated so I love to expand my knowledge in the area of personal finance.

There are many great personal finance and investing podcasts available. You certainly can’t go wrong with 12 of our selections here.

  1. Valerie Rind says:

    I’d add A Simpler, Happier Life with Mark and Lauren Greutman!

  2. Wow! I’m totally slacking in the PF podcast arena. I’ve only listened to Dave Ramsey and Money Girl, which are great podcasts. I will definitely check out the others to add to my 20 minutes commute. I would also recommend Jeff Rose at Good Financial Cents. He covers a wide number of topics related to personal finance.

    Thanks for the post!

  3. Jason @ Phroogal says:

    I listen to 7 of these and will definitely check out the others.

  4. Great list. I really enjoy the Radical Personal Finance podcast. Some of these are new to me, I’ll have to check them out. I’m thankful for this type of media, it helps to be able to learn anywhere, anytime. For non-finance enjoy listening to the Stuff You Missed In History Class podcast. I apparently missed a lot in history class!

  5. I listen to MoneyGirl during my driving trips. I do a good amount of driving every day for my job so I make sure to keep my time productive by listening to different podcasts/audiobooks.

  6. Rat Race Quitter says:

    Having an absurdly long drive proved to be very helpful to my post schooling education and helped fill in a lot of the holes left by my general education (like ALL of personal finance).

    Right now I’m listening to a lot of the Tim Ferriss Podcast and Stuff You Missed in History Class.

  7. Great list Jason! I’d also recommend Better Conversations on Money and Marriage with Derek and Carrie Olsen. They have some wonderful topics that many couples can relate to.
    And if you’re in the mood for more marriage and money podcasts, I’d like to mention my Couple Money Podcast is a nice one to listen to during a commute 😉

  8. Stefanie @ The Broke and Beautiful Life says:

    Thanks for the list. I haven’t really had the opportunity to get into podcasts much, probably because my commute is on a bike and I can’t be totally tuned out, but I’d like to start incorporating them into my routine.

  9. Mrs. Frugalwoods says:

    Great list! Some of these are new to me and I’ll have to check them out. We enjoy listening to podcasts while we do chores around the house–makes cleaning much more interesting! And I’d add Shannon of Financially Blonde’s Martinis and Your Money Podcast, which is my personal favorite.

  10. Great collection of podcasts Jason, thanks for including the Money Mastermind Show!

  11. You missed the weekly Friday podcast offered by financial planner Shannon of Financially Blonde! There are some good choices on your list though.
