5 top business podcasts


The rise of podcasts isn’t something that’s happened overnight. The very first podcast dates all the way back to 2003, and “podcast” was named word of the year in 2005. Though the next couple of years showed strong growth, there had been a major lull until very recently.

The popularity of the smartphone is one of the main reasons for this upswing. People are now downloading to podcasts to listen to while they are on the go. The other is how simple they are to make. Pretty much anyone with something to say can get their voice heard which has become a major draw for advertisers. There was a 23% rise in podcast listening between 2015 and 2016, while 21% of Americans have listened to at least one podcast in the last month.

Entrepreneurs have been found to be a key group who listen to podcasts, which is why business podcasts is one of the most popular categories. As they all live extremely busy lives, the beauty is that you can choose to listen to them any time, like driving to work, cooking dinner or even walking the dog.

So, here are some of the most popular business podcasts that you can listen to.
