Well, you guys, we did it. We SURVIVED TAX DAY! (PRESUMABLY!) Whether or not you got a big refund or ended up like me, having to pay several thousand dollars to the government, money was probably at the forefront of your brain the past few days. As such, I’m gonna continue down this lonely road preaching the good gospel of personal finance resources! Earlier this month I told you about my favorite YouTube channels and books, but now we’re moving on to PODCAST LAND for those of you who prefer to listen while you learn.
We’ll kick things off where we did last week, aka with Gaby Dunn’s Bad With Money! This is the podcast that inspired the book, and each episode delves into a specific area of finance, be it cryptocurrency or the stock market or…the list goes on and on. What I like about the podcast is that Dunn isn’t (or at least wasn’t when she started) by any means an expert, she just decided to put the goddamn work in. She approaches the topic of money in a non-scary, non-judgmental way, so even if you’re the purest novice in this arena, you’re gonna feel right at home as a listener. Season 4 should be out super soon, so get caught up on the rest of the episodes while you can!
Tons of good, actionable advice in this down-to-earth production; whether you’re looking for more information on investing, handling money in a relationship, making extra cash or anything in between, these guys and their guests have you covered.
Like the title implies, this one is geared to the average listener who might not have much (if any) knowledge of the financial world. A lot of the content is heavily focused on the ins and outs of investing, but even if that’s not your priority, it’s worth a listen; lots of talk about lifestyle and long term goals to work towards, so it should help get the wheels turning on some important financial issues.
This one is great, but not necessarily for a fresh-outta-the-gate listener as it doesn’t slow down to explain some of the more basic financial terms and concepts. The good news is that all of the above podcasts I mentioned are fairly easy to follow, so you should be able to join the party pretty quickly after you pick up some baseline knowledge. The show features financial news headlines, takes listener questions, has experts on as guests, etc., so if you like a little variety, you’ll for sure find it here.
If you’re in the market to make your money work harder for you, then you’re probably going to want to give Smart Passive Income a listen. Pat Flynn gives loads of advice about how to establish multiple streams of passive income, which should appeal to anyone who wants to spend more time doing what they love (traveling, pursuing hobbies, etc.) rather than slaving at a desk.
