9 Podcasts That Make Personal Finance Fun

Suze Orman’s Women and Money Podcast

For nearly 20 years, Suze Orman has fielded financial questions from TV viewers. Now, the financial advisor and author of more than 30 books brings her wisdom to this new medium. Orman’s weekly podcast covers current events like federal student debt forgiveness as well as evergreen issues like how home equity lines of credit (HELOCS), trusts, and loans work. (Don’t worry — she still takes audience questions!)

The Financial Confessions

This podcast is the spin-off of The Financial Diet, which is a female-facing, popular financial book and accompanying blog. Every week host and founder Chelsea Fagan interviews experts, influencers and everyday people to talk and help listeners think about money in new ways. She and her guests don’t shy away from discussing financial faux pas and other tough topics, including debt, financial abuse, multilevel marketing (MLMs), and socioeconomic disparities.

More Money Podcast

Jessica Moorhouse is a Canadian accredited financial counselor who invites other personal finance and business experts, entrepreneurs, celebrities and influencers onto her show to share their financial wisdom. Her more than 300 episodes aim to lift the veil between the consumer and the C.E.O., demystifying the financial world and making it more accessible to a wider audience.

Afford Anything

“You can afford anything, but not everything.” That’s the mantra of host Paula Pant, a financial journalist and Columbia University fellow. Early in her career, Pant realized that while she had the job she dreamed of, she lacked the freedom she craved. After saving $25,000, Pant spent the next few years backpacking across the world. She returned to the United States determined to maintain financial freedom, and now shares her plan — which includes investing, real estate and entrepreneurship — with listeners.  

Stacking Benjamins

Looking for more than just a weekly podcast? Stacking Benjamins airs every other day. Hosts Joe Saul-Sehy and Josh Bannerman (who goes by “OG” for “The Other Guy”) both have real-world experience as financial advisors. They try to introduce listeners to a wide spectrum of financial topics, like environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing, in an approachable, conversational way.

The Ramsey Show

When people think of financial advice, Dave Ramsey is often one of the first names to come to mind. His three-hour radio show has run since 1992 and broadcasts Monday through Friday, and it is now available to stream live on YouTube. On the air, a panel of Ramsey’s experts (sometimes including his daughter, Rachel Cruze) provides an open forum for everyday people to call in and request financial guidance. Ramsey’s network also offers more specialized podcasts, including The Fine Print, which is about the latest “money traps and trends.”

The Clark Howard Podcast

Clark Howard is a popular consumer expert and has been a nationally syndicated radio host since 1989, teaching consumers with pithy one-liners like “save more, spend less and avoid rip-offs.” Howard also shares his financial advice on everything from credit and insurance to the best streaming services on his website clark.com. The Clark Howard podcast airs every weekday for around 30 minutes per episode.

How to Money

This podcast intended for personal finance novices was started in 2017 by a former Clark Howard apprentice, Joel, and his money-minded friend, Matt. The two millennial friends give their audience advice to help with debt payoff, DIY investing and important ways to save that they may not have thought of. By explaining financial jargon in a way that makes it clear to the layman, Matt and Joel aim to make financial know-how accessible to a whole new generation.

HerMoney with Jean Chatzky

Jean Chatzky, financial editor of NBC’s “Today” show, is AARP’s personal finance ambassador, founder and CEO of financial multimedia company HerMoney. The podcast has already released nearly 400 episodes and tailors financial advice specifically to women. Whether a woman is a homemaker, breadwinner, or both, Chatzky believes women have their own unique set of financial challenges, from divorce to the gender pay gap to rising healthcare costs.

Chatzky was the guest speaker for an exclusive Brookdale webinar on the topic of “Affording Senior Living.”
