Podcasts Every Entrepreneur Should Listen To
August 10, 2022 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Once upon a time, podcasts were a bit of a niche market. Now though, podcasts represent a booming market that has officially swept the world. As one of the most competitive and saturated global markets, podcasts have found roaring popularity. They cover virtually every single topic, interest, story, market, genre, and style imaginable. There are video/audio podcast hybrids that are deployed on YouTube and other platforms. There are podcasts that are strictly audio-based, and there is a podcast in just about every other format you can imagine.
Oneo the reasons that podcasts are so popular, and why the market is so saturated, is because they're relatively inexpensive to produce. All they really require is a half-decent microphone, a little bit of mixing software, and equal parts time, dedication, and quality content.
Podcasts also have an almost innate startup and entrepreneurial type feeling about them. Fittingly, there are a ton of podcasts aimed at entrepreneurs that are must-listens for anyone and everyone who is considering an entrepreneurial venture.
"Another thing that is essential for business growth is continuous learning. But, thanks to over-packed work schedules, many entrepreneurs do not get enough time to learn new things. However, podcasts can be a great way to learn, understand and grow in a business world. Business podcasts have the power to help you make some remarkable positive changes in your life.

Unemployable is hosted by Brian Clark who is an entrepreneur himself. He also has an awesome roster of regular guests that carry a lot of clout with their names alone. Notably he features Seth Godin, Tim Ferris, and Gary Vaynerchuk. These star-power entrepreneurs are more than happy to share their secrets with you, but that's not where unemployable stops.
Brian Clark also shares insights he's picked up along the way, as he has three successful start-ups to his own name. This is a great podcast for anyone who is working for themselves in really any capacity.
"I love 'Unemployable'. It's engaging, I learn a lot, and I love the podcast format because I can listen while I'm doing other work, or traveling, doesn't matter. Gives me a way to learn on the go, and I love that.

Entrepreneurs on Fire
John Lee Dumas is a name you might already be familiar with if you're an engaged podcast listener. He started Entrepreneurs on Fire in 2012, and a decade later it is one of the best podcasts for anyone with the heart, mind, and soul of an entrepreneur.
The format of this podcast is also what makes it a great choice for entrepreneurs. Not only is the guest list more than impressive, each episode is 45 minutes long and there's a new episode 3-times-a-week. That's plenty of content to keep your fire lit.
"My favorite thing about listening to John Lee Dumas on his podcast, 'Entrepreneurs on Fire' is listening to his line of questioning. He's just so good at interviewing. I can't get enough of it."

The School of Greatness
Lewis Howes brings his own style and flavor to the world of entrepreneurial podcasts, which is why he makes this list of must-listens. Not only is his style unique, but his guest-list is too. This is a podcast that's specifically designed to be unique and different from other entrepreneurial podcasts. This is one for people tired of hearing the same anecdotes and business tips time and time again.
One of his notable guests, Kobe Bryant, and Howes discuss how difficult it is to become successful in life. His podcast also features solo episodes which are both touching and insightful. "The School of Greatness" is both inspiring and educational.
"Oh, 'The School of Greatness' is one of my all time favorite listens right now. Yeah, I love how personal it gets. I mean that's what it really takes in my mind to be an entrepreneur, a strong heart. And that's what this podcast has - heart."

This Week in Startups
Jason Calacanis is another host that brings his own comedic style to the microphone. This makes his podcast uniquely flavored in the context of entrepreneurial podcasts. Jason founded this podcast back in 2009 so he's been around the block more than once, to say the least.
This shows in his approach to presenting the world of entrepreneurship through a week-to-week view. It's also present in his unique way of questioning and interviewing his guests which presents their journey in a very unique light.
"By far one of my favorite podcasts, and a top recommendation for me. Hands down. I never make it through an episode without laughing out loud at least once."
- Chris Bridges, CEO, VITAL -
"The Pitch" makes the list of must-listens because it's a great starting point for entrepreneurs-to-be. This is because host Josh Muccio is dedicated to walking his listeners and founders-to-be through the pitching process step by step.
This is a great resource for aspiring entrepreneurs that can help them create high-quality pitches prior to meeting with investors. The result is a higher chance of success on pitching an idea and landing an investment.
This is another crowd favorite because of its unique approach to educating and discussing the world of entrepreneurship. "Without Fail" is hosted by Alex Blumberg who discusses the role of failure in the world of entrepreneurs. Specifically, this show will highlight historic, or not-so-historic, figures who risked a little too much, or took on a big challenge for the first time without any previous experience.
While the show discusses the role of failure in the life of an entrepreneur, Blumberg and his guests also discuss how to meet, embrace, and learn from failure, which is essential for any entrepreneur.
"Failing is the essence of being an entrepreneur. True, there are few lucky ones, who become successful without failing, but the majority of entrepreneurs fail, struggle, grind and fail again, before achieving success."
