Does the thought of “financial podcasts” launch you into a nostalgic vision of college: a boring lecture from your macroeconomics professor, coupled with accountant jargon and ridiculously color-coordinated excel spreadsheets? While I’m sure this is a common feeling, it’s time to curb the flashback and get serious about your financial status. Here is a list of money management podcasts that won’t leave you snoozing behind the wheel.
