I’m always on the lookout for good podcasts, so I was wondering if any of you might have some recommendations… While I’m something of a finance junky, I’m actually fairly open when it comes to subject matter. I’m definitely partial to “homegrown” podcasts as opposed to commercially produced podcasts (or simply radio shows that have been released via iTunes), although this isn’t a hard and fast rule.
A couple of my current favorites are the NCN podcast and the Money-Guy.com podcast. I also sometimes listen to the Vanguard Plain Talk on Investing podcast, although that’s definitely not a homegrown sort of thing. Fidelity also has a decent personal finance podcast (not as good as Vanguard’s, but decent all the same), as well as an investor’s weekly podcast that sounds promising (though I’ve never listened to that one).
Edit to add: I should also note that I sometimes listen to Clark Howard’s radio show podcast as well as The Money Pit radio show podcast (it’s a home improvement call-in show) when I run out of episodes of my preferred podcasts.
Anyway, the whole point of this was to ask for recommendations, so…
What do y’all recommend when it comes to podcasts?
And while I’d appreciate hearing about great personal finance podcasts, please feel free to range far and wide when it comes to subject matter. But please also be sure to say a few words about what the podcast is about and why you like it.
