For those looking to get some financial education through their earbuds or while driving, here are the podcasts I recommend and actively listen to as well as one I don’t listen to but you should consider.
Two investment advisors give an educational and entertaining summary of recent market/financial news 1-2 times per week.

Creative Planning is an investment advisory firm. Its President, Peter Mallouk, and Director of Financial Education, Jonathan Clements, who was a Wall Street financial columnist for 20 years, provide a monthly podcast series discussing recent market events, investment philosophy, and give monthly tips.
Ryan Inman is a fee-only financial advisor who happens to be married to a GS physician at NMCSD. Financial Residency is the podcast that I recommend but don’t personally listen to because I find it to be too basic. That said, if you are a beginner to intermediate when it comes to personal finance, I think this is a podcast that you should strongly consider to build your financial knowledge base.
