Finance | 06/01/2022 22:00

If you are looking to better understand your personal finances, tuning into a podcast is a great way to do so. But where do you start? There are so many podcasts out there, each with their unique focus and advice. There’s podcasts on the finance industry as a whole, podcasts on investing, podcasts on saving, podcasts on entrepreneurship–the list goes on and on (and on and on!)

So today we are jumping into the world of financial podcasts. From big picture topics to the intimate and the personal, we are giving you our favorites of the genre. We’ve sifted through hundreds of podcasts to find the shows that pack the biggest punches. 

Here are our top eleven favorite personal finance podcasts.

Best Podcasts for People Who Want to Manage Their Money Better

The Dave Ramsey Show

Dave Ramsey is a huge name in the world of personal finance. A successful financial educator and real estate investor, he hosts a syndicated talk radio show (which has been around for 30 years) where he talks about how you can manage your money more effectively. He is best known for his “7 Baby Steps'', a program to help people save for emergencies, pay off debt, and build wealth.

We’ve channeled him a few times when we’ve discussed how to create a budget and the importance of always having an emergency fund. Dave’s podcast, which is actually snippets of his radio show, is perfect for people looking for practical solutions for their money issues.

The Stacking Benjamins Show

The Stacking Benjamins Show talks not only about personal finance, but about how technology can help you with your finances. Joe Saul-Sehy, one of the co hosts, is the guy who “messed it all up”–his words, we swear. Credit card debt, student loan debt for no real reason, a lack of retirement planning–the works. Not only did Saul-Sehy pull himself out of the mess he made, but he grew a significant net worth on top of it.

The other co host, Josh Bannerman, is an acclaimed financial adviser who gives us an inside look into the finance industry. Together Joe and Josh discuss an array of topics that span all parts of the financial sphere, all while giving insight on how you can manage your money in a more meaningful way. And with three episodes a week and hundreds of episodes in their backlog, there’s a ton of content to make for a rewarding deep dive.

How to Money

In this podcast hosts Joel Larsgaard and Matt Altmix discuss all things personal finance. From understanding credit scores to negotiating higher paychecks, How to Money gives practical, real life advice on how you can take control of your finances. Shows vary from 30 to 60 minutes and vary in their format; sometimes they answer listener questions while other times they cover the financial headlines. But no matter the topic or format, they always start with a cold beer, making listeners feel like they are sitting around with friends (smart, financially intuitive friends that is). 


ChooseFI aims to help listeners achieve financial independence (FI). The hosts Jonathon and Brad weave in their personal experiences with interviews from people in the finance world to create content that inspires listeners to optimize the financial tools available to us. Their episodes are inspiring and educational, with guests that will convince you that it is indeed possible to get out of the rat race and live a financially stable life that you can enjoy. And isn’t that what we all want?

The Money Nerds Podcast

This weekly podcast is hosted by Whitney Hansen, a personal finance coach and entrepreneur who specializes in financial education. Her goal is simple: to teach millennials how to get out of debt and be financially independent (while having some fun along the way). Her interviews with various experts give insight into all of the personal finance basics, from paying off debt strategically to saving for retirement. While the Money Nerds podcast is aimed at millennials, anyone can enjoy and learn from Hansen’s personal financial milestones as well as her energizing interviews.

Marriage Kids and Money

Marriage Kids and Money is the ultimate podcast for people who want to achieve financial success for their families. Host Andy Hill is a regular family guy who became laser focused on creating a strong financial net for his family of four. He pulls on his own experience (including how he paid off $50,000 of debt in one year AND became mortgage free by the age of 35) as well as the experience of others to advise and guide listeners towards financial independence.

His guests range from millionaires to financially independent couples to personal finance experts. After his interviews he breaks down their stories into actionable strategies that everyone can apply to their financial lives. With over 300 episodes on topics ranging from paying off your mortgage early to helping your kids become millionaires, there’s something for everyone on this award winning podcast.
