Entrepreneur on Fire

This is an award-winning podcast ideal for budding entrepreneurs. Each day a new entrepreneur is interviewed to share their tips, secrets of success, and best and worst moments.

Featured guests on the show include consultants, restaurant owners, life coaches, and sales experts. Even if you’re not seeking specific industry-related advice, hearing from any expert is bound to leave you with some valuable ideas, whichever venture you’re undertaking.

Entrepreneur On Fire is one of the most popular podcasts in the business sector.

Outside in C-Space

This podcast focuses on the world of brand management. Its website states their mission is to understand ‘the strategies and philosophies of the world’s most customer-centred brands’.

Specialists are invited from business, media, and academia to explain the success behind some of the planet’s most recognised brands. Hear their secrets and set yourself up for success too! This podcast is most useful for brand managers and marketing/PR professionals.

Recent businesses featured on the podcast have included Jaguar Land Rover, PepsiCo and Jet.com.

How Did You Get Into That?

This podcast features people who have made a drastic career change. It aims to inspire people to go for the career they’ve always wanted. Career changes can be a difficult issue for some, but upon hearing these ambitious tales, you may be convinced to chase your dream too. 

Interviewed on the show are individuals who are doing something unique for a living.

Exchanges at Goldman Sachs

Exchanges at Goldman Sachs is produced by employees of the firm who offer expert market analysis and current happenings within the global economy.

A host of topics are covered including predictions about future markets, investment, and the digitalisation of music and shopping.

If you prefer other investment banks, JP Morgan (Insights podcast) and Morgan Stanley (Ideas podcast) have their own similar shows too.

You can listen to the podcast here.

Freakonomics Radio

If you enjoyed the book by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, then you’ll love Dubner’s podcast. The extremely popular show has earned 8 million downloads and covers topics such as ‘What Would The World Look Like If Economists Were In Charge’, ‘The Stupidest Thing You Can Do With Your Money’ and ‘Why Uber Is An Economist’s Dream’.

However, there are also plenty of lighter topics, such as ‘Who Runs The Internet’, ‘The War on Sugar’ and ‘How Can Tiny Norway Afford to Buy So Many Teslas’?

Just like the book, the podcast aims to investigate areas which are not covered by most economists. The book has the same name as the podcast and is the work of a self-titled rogue economist who aims to explore the hidden side of everything.

We hope this article helped you find some new listening material. For more insight, take a look at the rest of the LSBF blog.
