Whitney Hansen started her podcast after attending a conference and being inspired by people’s stories of crushing their debts and living for themselves again. Since then she’s made it her mission to share awesome stories of people conquering their finances and the lessons we can learn from them.
It’s not as if her own story isn’t impressive, either. She managed to pay off $30,000 in 10 months and bought her own home at 19. In her own words, the podcast is all about being a “penny pinching, net worth building, podcasting listening money nerd”. If you want a slice of the action, give it a listen.
Though technically not a podcast, this radio call-in show is well worth a listen for anyone interested in personal finance. Dave Ramsey is a personal money-management expert with 7 best-selling books under his belt along with his extremely popular radio show.
The show features a mix of interviews and stories from debt-conquering individuals and couples, along with personal advice from Dave for his callers. If you’re in the US you can catch it each week day from 2pm-5pm, or you can access the episodes online.
Not everyone has the time to sit down and listen to a gargantuan multi-hour podcast, and that’s where Money Girl comes in. Her episodes are a quick 15-18 minutes and offer friendly advice on business & personal finance, as well as investment tips.
Wherever you are on your finance journey, there’s something to be learned from Money Girl. Recent topics include “7 Micro Habits That Create Financial Success”, “How to Invest Money Like A Pro (Even If You Haven’t Started)”, and even “How to choose a wardrobe on a budget”.
Paula Pant’s Afford Anything podcast has one central concept, and it’s this. You have the amount you earn, and the amount you spend. The distance between those two figures is called ‘the gap’. Pant’s podcast tackles how we grow that gap, and to do this she enlists the help of millionaires, entrepreneurs, adventurers, scientists, artists and people from all walks of life.
Her motto is, “You can afford anything, but not everything.” Her podcast focuses on the small, everyday decisions and tradeoffs that determine how we spend our money. This podcast is great for giving you ideas on making small changes every day, that have a big pay off in the long run.
Joshua J. Sheats is a personal finance guru who approaches money matters from unexpected angles. Some of his topics include “Who Do You Want to Remember You and What Do You Want to Be Remembered For?”, “How to Prepare for the Coming Recession,” and “The Power of Choosing Not to Retire”.
His mission is to, “Bridge the gap between your vision of your ideal lifestyle and the practical reality of where you stand today.” If the overwhelming popularity of this podcast is anything to go by, he’s doing a pretty good job.
