Top 15 financial advisor podcasts to listen to

Even great advisors need advising. Listening to podcasts is a low-lift strategy for staying in the loop on financial news, industry trends, and new perspectives. Got a weak spot? Podcasts can even help you with the non-finance parts of your business, like management and marketing.

Finance is one of the most popular categories of podcasts, with a 13% share of weekly listeners. That’s a lot to sift through. Whether you’re interested in bite-sized recaps, long-form deep dives, or fascinating interviews, we’ve hand-picked some of the best podcasts for Registered Investment Advisers (RIAs). 

Here are the best podcasts for financial advisors.

Learn a growth mindset from a pro

We might be biased here at Altruist, but The Advisor Journey from founder Jason Wenk and co-host Dasarte Yarnway is our go-to podcast for everything finance, inspiration, and growth. The Advisor Journey will give you a window into how many independent advisors have found success. We’ve integrated some favorite episodes into the categories below, but The Advisor Journey is especially useful for RIAs looking to build, grow, and scale their practice. 

This early episode, a conversation between Wenk and Head of Community Dasarte Yarnway is all about the questions and anxieties that RIAs face when breaking away, and the strategies they have to soldier through and start strong.
