Podcasts for financial education


Postby Fairfur » September 30th, 2021, 12:19 pm

Are there any good podcasts that can be listened to for some financial education?

Welcome to The Lemon Fool.

Unfortunately, you have chosen one of the more obscure Boards to pose your question, which might not help in your quest for knowledge. What kind of financial education are you after? A mod can easily relocate to either somewhere such as "How Do I Invest", or "Living Below Your Means" depending on your response.

I'm sure that a MOD will be along soon to move this to a more appropriate board.

However I thought that I'd list a few podcasts that I follow.

Money & Markets (by the A J Bell "Shares" team).
Investors Chronicle (by guess who).
Money Clinic (by the FT).
Money Makers (by Jonathan Davis, Investment trusts Handbook fame).

I also catch the FT news briefing. Investment is all about the future. You can't guess what will happen in the future if you don't know what's happening today.

The first three regularly do basics. The fourth is worth following to keep track of sentiment.

I have a feeling that this is going to end up being a very long list. I do subscribe to some of the above but can also recommend:

Investability - The Quality Share Podcast - recently set up by two ex Investors Chronicles writers
Money Week - has interesting interviews
PIWORLD - has really good interviews

EconTalk is an excellent weekly economics podcast, hosted by Prof. Russ Roberts, an Austrian school economist. I've been listening to it for over a decade.

Very wide ranging discussions with a variety of guests, not restricted to economists and economics.

One podcast featured the dealer from whom Prof. Roberts bought his car, another looked into the business aspect of professional sports, Magna Carta, prohibition of alcohol, and how academics are incentivised to falsify their research, etc.

Prof. Roberts lets his guests talk and is very well prepared (if the guest is talking about their latest book, Prof. Roberts will almost certainly have read it)

I learned more economics from EconTalk than in my MSc. A good place to start is any podcast with Mike Munger (who is an economist)

I like the Rational Reminder - couple of Canadian fund managers who are advocates for evidence based investing and often have some interesting guests on.

Joseph Carlton on YouTube might be of interest - aimed at a younger audience and I find he labours his points somewhat, but very knowledgable on dividend stocks and the tech industry.

PensionCraft on YouTube and Rational Reminder as mentioned above although Ben Felix's own videos are some of his best output. so the guy is Romanian but a lot of the content is applicable internationally.

Also, not a podcast but is worth a read along with

I have wanted to like the ChooseFI podcasts but really cannot see the appeal of them!

Meaningful money with Pete Matthews is a good, UK based podcast (and YouTube channel) which in my view provides some sound financial education!
