19 Business Podcasts Every Professional Should Listen To

Are you a multi-tasker? Always looking to squeeze something more into your hour/day? Always hungry for new information? I can totally relate. I sometimes feel like I’m wasting time walking from the parking lot to my office!

Podcasts are a gift to people like us. These on-demand audio programs allow us to learn while we – well, whatever – workout, drive, eat lunch, wait in line at the DMV.

I subscribe to several podcasts, which download automatically to my phone. When I have a few minutes, I hit “play” and soak up some knowledge.

If you are unfamiliar with podcasting, here’s a great article that will help you access this hot new medium.

I’m such a big fan of podcasting that I have my own. The Money Matters podcast contains material from my weekly radio show.

The biggest challenge with podcasting is finding the best ones for you. There are literally thousands and thousands of podcasts available, and there is no central directory like the TV listings. You just have to poke around the internet, ask friends what they like, and look for recommendations from sources you trust.
