I have been listening to a few that have been pretty great:

-How I Built This - NPR

Want to find something like the Netflix Series "Dirty Money" - but haven't found anything similar so far...

Jocko Podcast, Adam Carolla's stuff is all good (ACS, Adam/Drew show, Reasonable Doubt), Smoking Tire, obviously Rogan, those are about all I have time for but Freakonomics is also good

"When you stop striving for perfection, you might as well be dead."

Radiolab has some great episodes. The ones about patient zero for HIV and the lawyer who thought up the phrase "I can neither confirm or deny" were very interesting.

These are not in any particular order, I listen one of them every day.

Planet Money: 15-20 minute podcasts about things in the economy that you didn't know interested you. (Why is Deli Rotisserie Chicken cheaper than whole, uncooked chickens?)

Ear Hustle: 30 minute show about life in San Quinten prison. Interviews with inmates and what life is like in there.

Tell Me Something I Don't Know: 45-60 minute show where guests try to amaze the judges about hard to believe facts (cow tipping is impossible)

The Pitch: 30-45 minute show that's basically a podcast version of Shark Tank.

Success! How I Did it: 30 minute interviews with successful entrepreneurs presented by Business Insider.

How I built This: roughly 60 minute interview with successful entrepreneurs, by NPR. I prefer this over Success!

Wall Street Oasis Podcast: Yes, they have a podcast!

I forgot to mention Option Alpha Podcast; a show for options traders that teaches you a thing or two about trading. You will not "turn $1,000 into $500k overnight"

WSO have a good podcast, the guy who does it is pretty good and intelligent

Mar 4, 2018

I'd really recommend Stratechery's Exponent podcast.

Touches on strategy in tech and some of the episodes have been extremely interesting.
I'd recommend the one on Amazon's moat and the one on StitchFix

Ben Shapiro show (The daily wire) Ben is a good political commentator and he doesn't praise Trump all the time and calls him whilst still being a good conservative thinking.

We study billionaires is also a good podcast

Bloomberg Surveillance and Masters in Business are two of my favorite

-Odd Lots: (Bloomberg) weird twists applying financial theory to the world.

-Planet Money: (NPR) same as spaghetti said

-Trillions: (Bloomberg) An accessible show on ETFs

-The Daily: (NYT) Since I got downgraded to a shared terminal I have had to get to the office for Daybreak. (cost cuts)

-The Economist ('Nuff Said)

-Hello Internet: (CGP Grey and Brady Haran) two dudes talking about random stuff. Very entertaining, and Brady beat Chris Evans of Top Gear in an online popularity poll hosted by the UK equivalent of TV guide last year.

-The Anthropocene Reviewed: (John Green) NYT best selling author reviews various items from current day on a 1-5 star scale. In the two episodes so far he has reviewed Canada Geese, Diet Dr. Pepper, Haley's Comet, and Cholera. (Spoiler: Cholera gets one star)

Download the "Podible" app in the app store. It's a solid dedicated podcast player that also has recommendation engine to help pick out series' based on what you like to follow. That's how I discovered half the economic/market related podcasts I currently listen to on the subway. Kinda like the discover feature on Spotify.

2) a16z (Andreessen Horowitz)
3) Exponent (Ben Thompson from Stratechery)

6) Capitalisn't (Econ profs from UChicago)

Blockchain/Crypto:
1) Unchained

Sports:
1) Wharton Moneyball (Wharton profs talking sports analytics. It's fantastic and prob my favorite overall.)
2) The Hockey PDOCast
3) PFF Pro Football Focus (entertaining but gets repetitive)
4) The Lab (NBA podcast from Five-Thirty-Eight)
5) Bet The Process (sports betting focused. lot's of good info but lower production value)

Other:
1) Up First (5-10 minute listen every morning for news from NPR)
2) Tim Ferriss Show (general lifehack stuff)
3) Waking Up With Sam Harris (philosophy/neuroscience/mindfulness focused)

5) Radiolab (hit or miss)

Curious to see other recommendations

I'm borderline evangelistic about Invest Like the Best. Go listen to it now. You'll be better for it.

Climbing;
- Firn Line
- Enormocast
- Alpinist

It's good to see another climber here! I only listen to the Enormocast, the other two are too hard core mountaineering for me.

I'd add JPM AM podcasts to the list above, good stuff especially in fixed income.

Reorg Research and Debtwire are very good. Recommended for anyone in Rx or is curious about certain distressed industries / single names.

Epsilon Theory podcast is a must.
Also adventures in finance, Grant's podcast (Grant's interest rate observer), Macro voices and Joe Rogan.

Mar 27, 2018

One of my favorites is Words and Numbers. It's two professors that talk about economical and political issues the country is facing. Aside from that Freakonomics and Planet Money are also great conversation starters between coworkers.

Apr 19, 2018

Can get a little OT/side-tracked, but Quoth The Raven is always interesting and entertaining while still providing some value.

May 14, 2018

Primarily listen to the Economist, Bloomberg, FT, and WSJ suite of podcasts. Also follow Exchanges at GS, UBS's podcasts, [email protected], Ted Talks, and a few podcasts that I find interesting (Joe Biden's podcast, David Axelrod's podcast) and political & NFL podcasts.

Would appreciate recommendations
