What Are The 10 Best Finance Professionals' Podcasts?
The podcast has rapidly become the go-to media for anyone and everyone seeking thought leadership, guidance, advice, or entertainment, especially in a particular niche with particular audience demands.
While far from a flash-in-the-pan trend, podcasts are tapping into what makes radio so timeless – they are familiar, routine, mobile-based and mostly non-committal (compared to TV shows), increasingly well-produced and incredibly varied in content provision and direction.
The state of podcasting in 2022
Podcasting is a rapidly growing, and increasingly lucrative, creative medium for creators and advertisers:
- “In 2021, there (were) 850,000 active podcasts, with over 48 million total episodes”.
- “Each week, more Americans listen to podcasts than have Netflix accounts”.
- “Podcast ad revenue is expected to grow to $1.33 billion in 2022”.
It’s also worth noting why people listen to podcasts, and this is where podcasting really comes into its own:
- “74% of all listeners tune in to learn new things. Other common reasons include entertainment (71%), staying up-to-date with the latest topics (60%), and relaxing (51%)”.
So rather than escaping into stories (which is increasingly the reason why audiobooks are on the rise), or listening to light-hearted comedy to relax at the end of the day (comedy still stands as the most popular podcast genre), learning is the primary reason why people listen to podcasts.
Finance podcasting and the future of the medium
The Finance sector has had a proliferation of podcasts erupt over the few years – content is varied, informative and incredibly useful, and the nature of podcasting means creators can approach the topic of “finance” from a variety of angles; from money management to investment advice, industry news to crypto-tips.
