Well, look no further: the following 7 business programs are not only insightful but also genuinely enjoyable to listen to. Your new favourite podcast awaits.

“The Indicator”

This recent addition to NPR’s (National Public Radio’s) podcast roster serves up bite-size stories that help explain current business ‘indicators’ such as employment figures and stock-market data. The show is US-centric, but it’s still valuable listening for those with an interest in economics.

“The Economists”

If you’d prefer your economics content to relate specifically to Australia, this weekly program by the ABC (also broadcast on Radio National) could be your go-to. Hosts Gigi Foster and Peter Martin successfully make sense of big issues without dumbing them down.

“HAE Invites”

Harvard Alumni Entrepreneurs (HAE) is one of the Ivy League’s best-regarded alumni organisations, and its new podcast shows us why. These interviews with former students – now founders, executives and CEOs – are never less than compelling.

“Board Level”

The Australian Institute of Company Directors produces this timely show about women in directorship. More than just a fascinating listen for female executives, the podcast also provides valuable context for men who are striving to make their organisations more equitable.

“WTF: What’s the Future?”

Salesforce executive and best-selling author Brian Solis hosts this pacey podcast about digital Darwinism, i.e. the theory that technology and society are currently evolving faster than businesses can naturally adapt to. Only the nimblest will survive.


If you haven’t already devoured this long-running Gimlet Media podcast (it launched in 2014), now is the time to catch up. StartUp reliably attracts the biggest names in entrepreneurship for candid conversations about success in the digital age. It’s essential listening.

“How I Built This”

Another excellent podcast from the folks at NPR, How I Built This differs from many interview shows by only speaking to founders whose businesses are long-established. Veteran journalist Guy Raz is a joy to listen to, as are the vast majority of his guests.
