P&C Picks: The Best Personal Finance Podcasts
Words by: Victoria Bevilacqua
We’re very passionate about financial literacy here at Paper & Coin. According to the National Endowment for Financial Education, only 24% of millennials demonstrate basic financial literacy. While the world of finance can feel intimidating, understanding the basics like how to avoid debt, invest intelligently, and paying as little as possible in taxes, can help you gain financial control and confidence.
So, where can you get started brushing up on your financial literacy? Well, we’re glad you asked. We’ve compiled a list of some of the best financial podcasts in the game to help get you started. So, let’s get lit …. erate!
The Dave Ramsey Show
If you ever meet Paper & Coin founder, Octavia Ramirez, ask her about Dave Ramsey and watch as her face lights up. She might be Dave’s number one fan. And, with good reason; he offers practical, simple advice to help you get your finances on the right track. His financial podcast, The Dave Ramsey Show, is a great place to start your financial literacy journey!
She Makes Money Moves
Hosted by Glamour’s Editor-In-Chief, Samantha Barry, She Makes Money Moves is the second financial podcast on our list.
While financial literacy is important for everybody, statistics show that women are more likely than their male counterparts to lack financial confidence.
That’s why we love that this podcast is helping women raise their voices and make money moves.
Next up on our list is So Money hosted by Farnoosh Torabi. This podcast has interviewed some of the best and brightest minds in business including Tim Ferris, Seth Godin and Arianna Huffington. With this financial podcast in your regular rotation, we think you’ll be feeling lit in no time.
Planet Money from NPR is the fourth financial podcast on our list. We love this podcast because it uses storytelling to help its listeners learn about topics impacting the status of the economy today. It’s way less dry than that ECO101 course you took in first year, we promise.
The Chris Hogan Show
If you’re starting to think about your financial future (and you should be!) The Chris Hogan Show is the financial podcast for you! This podcast focuses on simple approaches to investing, building wealth and preparing you for retirement. Remember, it’s never too early to start thinking ahead!
The Rachel Cruze Show
The final financial podcast on our list is The Rachel Cruze Show. If you’re focused primarily on learning about your personal finances, this is the place to start. Rachel offers practical advice on everything from managing your holiday budget to paying off your student loans. Her tips are simple and straightforward, just how we like it here at Paper & Coin.
So, there you have it; our list of the best financial podcasts in the game. Honestly, you look smarter already.
