Podcasts are today’s streaming answer to the radio of the past, in many ways. But today’s podcast creation is in the hands of the people, creating possibilities for a wide variety of viewpoints and educational topics.
Personal finance is among these topics. Today’s best podcasts make information more accessible. They’re also making room for new voices representing historically underserved audiences for personal finance topics.
In this article, we’ll look at eight great financial podcasts you might benefit from.
Dave Ramsey offers tips and detailed plans for how to turn things around if you’re in a poor financial situation or have bad credit. He aims to simplify personal finance and money management, providing plans and guidance anyone can work with.

Episodes are released at least daily and run for about 40 minutes.
This podcast focuses on helping Latinas and other women develop and manage first-generation wealth. Creator and host Jannese Torres says her audience is her younger self – “a first-gen [American] kid who didn’t learn [anything] about money.” Today, she’s a nationally recognized money expert, a serial entrepreneur, and a six-figure blogger.
Torres describes the podcast as “a platform to connect you with Latinx and POC change makers who are sharing their personal finance stories and inspiring you to take your dinero [money] to the next level.”
With more than 230 episodes, Yo Quiero Dinero offers a huge catalog of free information to help you educate yourself about money. New episodes typically release on Mondays and run for approximately 30 to 60 minutes.
Host Paula Pant founded her show, which she now refers to as a “movement,” based on one idea: you can afford anything, just not everything. She applies this to not just our money, but also our time, energy, focus and attention.
As Pant says at affordanything.com, the podcast explores how to make smarter decisions about money, time and life, as well as how we can align our daily behavior and habits with the lifestyle we value most. Pant takes a curious approach to answering these questions, covering any and all topics from travel, lifestyle, financial independence, real estate, and entrepreneurship, to name a few.
New episodes of Afford Anything are released about two days a week, and usually run over an hour. Pant’s PSA Thursday messages are shorter, averaging 15-30 minutes.
Another classic, Suze Orman’s Women and Money podcast teaches listeners to go beyond money and control their future. She teaches that money itself shouldn’t be our end goal, but rather the means to create the meaningful lives we crave. She frequently features an Ask Anything edition with listener questions.
Orman has more than 35 years of experience helping create wealth for millions of people and teaching personal finance.
New episodes release on Sundays and Thursdays, and average 20-30 minutes.
