5 Business Podcasts Every Entrepreneur Should Follow

Carl Taylor | July 10, 2018

As business owners, we’re constantly absorbing new content. From blog posts to webinars, everyone seems to have a story to tell and information to share.

This is great for entrepreneurs because there is always something new to learn. However, skimming through blog posts can get old and watching videos can be time-consuming.

When you’re constantly on the go and have a million tasks to complete, you need a content form that works with you.

Enter podcasts.

We’re currently experiencing the golden age of podcasts, with new episodes, interviews, and shows created every day. And it’s no surprise why – podcasts are the perfect mix of entertainment and information, and they don’t require the listener’s undivided attention. Entrepreneurs can listen to podcasts while reading emails or commuting, or even to find some motivation before the start of the day.

There are dozens of podcasts out there created specifically for entrepreneurs, but here are five favorites to get you started.


1. “Community Made” from Jayson Gaignard

Community Made challenges the myth that an entrepreneur can be “self-made.” In his podcast, Jayson dives into the communities and support systems entrepreneurs and business owners have used to get to where they are.

Community Made is more than just a podcast. It’s also an online community that believes “your network is your net worth.” Within the private online community, entrepreneurs can connect with other business leaders to find their own entrepreneurial support system.
