Let’s start with inspiration.


The James Altucher Show

This was the first time I heard a podcast described as “confessional”, and its true is funny, and pretty honest, and is seldom a straight line to the idea to success. This guy mentioned starting up over 20 companies but then reminded us the majority of those have failed at some point too. Mixed in with this is some pretty good writing advice, getting ideas, and just living life as an entrepreneur.

The Motley Fool Money Podcast

It’s a finance show, basically talking about the current financial climate and business news. It’s usually pretty funny, and If nothing else, it interested me in Chipotle.
