Listening to These Podcasts Could Help You Save Money | Thomas Looby

If you’re trying to build a better financial future and have more cash on hand for life’s expenses, you may want to get some ideas from the experts on how to do it. Many experts who’ve achieved financial freedom are regular hard-working people who have been where you’ve been. They’ve dealt with financial hardship, debt, struggling to save money for retirement, and other things. But what they’ve learned can help you avoid common mistakes and be more financially successful, and here are a few podcasts that are worth listening to.

The Dave Ramsey Show

Dave Ramsey is by far the gold standard when it comes to personal finance talk shows. Along with his live radio, you can catch his podcasts on his website, where he covers just about any subject. He has advice on living without needing to use credit cards, setting up IRAs, getting approved for a mortgage without needing a FICO score, and many other topics. Ramsey is a tell-it-like-it-is kind of host, and he makes personal finance very easy to understand.

The Planet Money Podcast

Contrary to public belief, National Public Radio’s Planet Money podcasts have pretty compelling content. While this one might be a little more about the economy in general, there are regular tie-ins to personal finance. Listeners also receive insights on which financial markets are currently doing the best, a few tips on investment strategies, and how technology impacts your finances. It’s certainly worth a listen with the diverse opinions you will hear on it from various guests.

Smart Passive Income With Pat Flynn Podcast

Passive income is a way you can make a lot of money without working hard, and while it can involve investing, that’s not the only way to do it. Pat Flynn is an expert who has built a lot of wealth on easy gigs like affiliate marketing, writing e-books, teaching online courses, and many other unconventional and unheard-of approaches to money-earning. Flynn often talks to former CEOs, marketing consultants, and others who know a lot about being business leaders and balancing their careers with work. At times, the material covered in these podcasts may be a little harder to digest, but there is a lot of helpful information, making them well worth your time.
