As I was recently updating Tiller’s list of top 30+ favorite money podcasts (out next week), I noticed an interesting trend: many of the most informative and entertaining recent podcasts about money and investing are produced by women.
So I decided to curate a new list of favorite financial podcasts from women, which you can browse below.
Now, only a few of these shows are strictly female-focused. In other words, both men and women will gain from these podcasts. But it’s worth considering why female money experts often have such sharp financial insight when it comes to managing money.
Perhaps it’s because women traditionally have been required to take a different (and usually less lucrative) financial path than men.
So for women, there’s typically less room for error in achieving major financial goals like early retirement, business ownership, and personal wealth.
Strategy, emotional support, discipline, common sense, and shared wisdom give women the leverage needed to both
And we all benefit from the perspective and knowledge gained from tuning in.
Notes on the list below:
- All shows have to be currently in production.
- Unless otherwise noted, quoted reviews come from Stitcher.com.
