If you are anything like me, you love trading and investing podcasts. If you don't know which ones are the best or what you might be missing out on, well, not to worry. I've compiled a list of what I believe to be the best trading and investing podcasts.
A lot of these podcasts vary in style from a more laid back conversational delivery to a more lecture or interview type approach.
The list is in no particular order and these podcasts cover topics ranging from the current market environments, value investing, trading interviews to general stock market and retirement investing podcasts tailored more towards retirement investing opportunities and overall stock market chatter.
So without further a due, lets gets started.
Hosted by Aaron Fifield, this podcast is brilliant to listen too on your commute to work or just in general.
Aaron is like the modern Jack Schwager whereby he interviews top traders in all different walks of life. His interviews provide valuable insights into many traders and investors approach to the markets and lessons that can be learned from them.
I particularly love hearing the stories of how these guys and girls got started in their careers and some of the pitfalls and struggles they faced when starting out, reminding us all, that no one is immune to the trials and tribulations of the stock markets.
To sum up what gets covered:
I cannot speak highly enough of this podcast. It can become very addictive and before you realize, you've binge listened to all his episodes, (I'm guilty of this).
With over 10 million + listens, this podcast is going from strength to strength.
His podcast style is in an interview type delivery and Aaron always asks the burning questions we've always wanted to ask these top people when starting out.

Michael Covel is another great guy to listen to. His podcast has some amazing guests and you can most certainly learn an absolute ton from them. He authored best selling book Turtle Traders.
His podcast varies in approach but there is always valuable insights to learn from him and his guests.
So what exactly does he cover ?
The simple answer is everything ! But let's be more specific. Topics include:
These are just some general topics covered, there are absolutely loads of variations of these topics he also covers and you can always learn something from him or his guests.
He doesn't have just any guest on his podcast either. Some of his guests include:
These are just a few of the calibre of guests on his show. He also regularly has prominent figures in different fields including professors of Economics, Finance, Psychology, Computer Science just to name a few.
You can check out all his podcast episodes and find one you might like. There is over 600 of them so it might take some time to go through them.
Or you could do what I do and just binge. It really is a problem of mine. I find new podcasts and just binge on them lol
I guess it certainly isn't the worst addiction to have.
You can catch him on twitter where he updates on his latest episodes and other stuff he has going on in his life.
You can also find some of his episodes on youtube if you find it easier to listen there.

Hosted by Brandon Turner and Josh Dorkin, this podcast covers everything Real Estate Investing. Their exciting style of delivery makes this podcast very entertaining
They could even make boring topics like tax sound exciting.This show is great for people, beginners or veteran alike, who want tips on real estate investing.
Topics include :
These are just some of the many great episode they have. I love their style and when I wanted to learn how to invest in real estate, I learned a lot from just listening to them.
It's always great to gain insight from people who have been around in the industry for quite some time so we can learn from their mistake and avoid potential disasters in our own investments.
Alternatively, you can listen to them on youtube Here is a an example video of theirs.
Hosted by Farnoosh Torabi, this is a podcast I only recently discovered. While it's not strictly related to investing, there are some very important guests on her show that can help with our finances.
There is always lessons to learn on the show. She offers personal finance advice to both the younger generation and the older generation.
If you are a young person wanting to get started in the stock market or even an older person and need ways to manage your finances to allow you to have the capital to invest/trade, So money is a great podcast for this.
Topics included in her podcast :
Another great thing I love about this show is the wide array of guests she has on. There isn't one style here. There is a vast difference between some of her interviewees.
Heres some of the people she's interviewed:
Even from that small sample of some guests on her show, you can see she covers a wide variety of different styles and industries, but they all have one thing in common, financial well being and entrepreneurship.
I love these guys. This podcast is hosted by, you guessed it, two guys, Tom & Brandon. The podcast is generally in a conversational style and is highly entertaining.
The podcast is jammed packed with great information. I love the more laid back style personally too. As they are both from the U.K. there are some great topics that don't get covered much if at all in American trading and investing circles.
They really cover a plethora of information and are well worth a listen. You'll definitely learn something from them or the guests they have on.
My personal favorite episode ' A Mathematical Basis For Intuitive Trading with Andre Minassian'
You can also find more updates and information on their Twitter Account
Hosted by Stephen D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, where do I even begin to start with these guys? They are nothing short of amazing and their podcast makes economics fun. There insights into economics, albeit from a completely different viewpoint is very interesting and they delve into many topics.
Some of these topics include:
Just look at their episode list and you'll see the unique approach they take to things. This isn't your Economics 101 where you'd be bored to tears.
These guys are great at bucking conventional wisdom and following data and not 'curve fitting' it to create a desired outcome.
I wish these guys taught me when I was in school. One of my favorite episodes and the lessons in this really got me thinking. ' What are the secrets of the German economy and can we steal them?'
They deservedly have a large twitter following. You'll get notified of their latest episodes, books, general information etc.
Here is a great video with the two hosts
I hope you guys enjoyed the list. Like I said, they are in no particular order and all of them have their own unique benefits and values.
From the more entertaining, laid back approach to the interview style, structural podcasts, there is something for everyone. We all love podcasts and they are certainly growing in popularity over the years.
What I love most is how much information is freely available and can be learned from them. It really gives our society a head start of our peers of the past.
Lucky us !
