I am a podcast junkie and always scouting for new one. My latest new find is Y Combinator; it is pretty technical + entrepreneur!
I started listening to podcasts when I was commuting to work. My commute was long, and typical spent about 3 hours in the car and eventually developed a habit and collected a list of my favorite podcasts.
If you have ios, Overcast is my favorite app to download episodes, and it is free. When I used to have iPhone, this app allowed me to slow down the tape since my English listening skills weren’t as sharp as today! Android people I got you covered as well. Castbox is what I am using now!
If you are new to podcasts and stumbled into here, I highly recommended Planet Money. Planet Money has over 800 episodes, and there isn’t a topic they haven’t covered, and you will find a good list of them that grab your interests. I am learning new things every time I listen to this podcast. My recent episode is #858: Venezuela’s Fugitive Money Traders. I couldn’t believe chocolate, milk, bread, etc. are worth more than their paper currency! You have to listen to this and won’t regret it.
Here are 2018 favorite podcasts:
