This one’s for the ladies. In case you couldn’t tell from that Destiny’s Child moment we just shared together. Unfortunately, we live in a world where the pink tax, the gender pay gap, and inequality is still a thing. And if you’re a woman and a minority, you’re faced with even more hurdles to jump.

Best financial news podcasts 🎙️

Planet Money

They say money makes the world go round (kinda sad) but this podcast shows you how to make sense of that and hits you with some of the most interesting finance facts and news out there. Sounds boring, I know. But it actually isn’t. It’s like listening to a fun chat with friends. They even have an episode on the Simpsons (yes, I’m really trying to hammer home that this is not boring, I repeat this is not boring.)

Exchanges at Goldman Sachs

Alright, I won’t lie to you, this one is a little more serious. But if you just can’t get enough finance news, it’s a good one to add to your routine. The Goldman Sachs podcast sits down with people who work at the firm on a weekly basis. They discuss market insights, industry news and things that are going on in the global economy.
