19 Apr A free and easy way to learn: 8 great business podcasts you should listen to today
When it comes to traveling, driving or even relaxing, an interesting business podcast can be your best friend.
Do you want to learn about investment, business and money? Are you curious about marketing? Or do you just want to laugh or get a different take on business issues?
The great thing about business podcasts these days is that you will find topics of interest for just about anyone. Plus, these popular podcasts are delivered via streaming on any mobile device you already own or can be downloaded and enjoyed via your car’s audio system or your personal computer.
Another nice thing about business podcasts is that they are topic-specific. You can choose those relevant to your specific professional interests, while also exploring ones that might not be as relevant but offer useful knowledge to master. Business podcasts are good learning tools for both specific topics and general knowledge on any business-related subject.
Duration is also very important as many business podcast episodes are short and therefore perfect for listening on the go, either during your commute from work or while running errands.
It is important to dedicate some time to carefully choose those business podcasts that best suit your needs and interests. We suggest you listen to several before committing your time and attention to a specific set of business podcasts.
To help you get started, the EIMF team has compiled a short list of finance, business and management-related podcasts that might be of interest. Happy listening!
