I’d like to think that I’m at least getting a little bit wiser every year. So I decided to make 2020 a year full of financial literacy and money wisdom. I’ve been focused on paying student loans, monthly bills and vital subscriptions, but the truth is that I still don’t exactly know how I should be spending money.
There are so many different rule books when it comes to dealing with personal wealth, or lack thereof. These podcasts have helped me put together savings goals, and learn all kinds of financial terms that I didn’t even know existed.

Not only is the podcast releasing new episodes multiple times per week, but each episode will leave you feeling a little calmer. This was the first finance podcast I ever listened to, and it opened up the way that I thought about money.

From the pros and cons of AfterPay to walking through the steps of buying a home, there’s no doubt that beginners could use this one.
Money and finances accompany so many other topics in our lives. I love Suze Orman’s way of painting far too similar situations and talking through the effect certain choices can have on your finances.
So many familiar female faces—or voices—are featured on these 30-minute or less interviews with actual advice from so many women we admire.
