Podcasts are a uniquely 21st-century creation. Podcasts cover a wide variety of topics from business, to self-help; basically any topic you can think of. Besides offering entertainment in our daily lives, there is a lot of great information you can take away from podcasts. In this article, we will list the top podcasts that focus on business.

1. TED Talks Business

“Ted Talks” have become wildly popular over the past few years. Standard “Ted Talks” typically feature a single speaker on an empty stage sharing their personal stories or talking about interesting topics. “Ted Talks Business,” is a podcast that branches off of that same general idea, but features more business-centered subject matters. Speakers include popular business innovators, entrepreneurs, and business researchers. These speakers share their experiences in business, tools and tricks and life lessons they have picked up along the way. Access all of the “Ted Talks Business” podcasts here.

2. Side Hustle School

“Side Hustle School,” is a podcast that was created by New York Times Best-Selling author, Chris Guillebeau. This podcast features Chris sharing ideas to inspire your next business venture, whether it be a full-time career or a business you operate on the side for some extra money. He also shares the stories of entrepreneurs and their success stories. Guillebeau writes, “If you’re trying to make a big change, a hustle can help you build a foundation to move on to something else. If you love your day job, that’s great too—the hustle will provide a creative outlet and a backup plan.” You can learn all about Chris’ “Side Hustle School” and listen to the podcasts here.
