From podcasts teaching you how to get rich, to those interviewing the one percent, here’s what the wealthy are listening to.
There’s a trend forecaster on TikTok who says short-form content is bound to expire, and even though everything on social media is to be taken with a pinch of salt, the prospect of Youtube and Podcasts back in the game has gotten us all quite excited. Podcasts, much like Youtube videos, come in all shapes and sizes. There’s thousands on self-care, many on how to get rich, even more so on docu-series and a rather insufferable number of friend groups who think their conversations over a cup of tea are worth listening to. Perhaps they are, but most often not.
So if its not bloggers rambling about self-care or BBC’s most intriguing dramas, what, if anything, are the one percent listening to? The answer, mainly, is podcasts to get you ahead of the curve. Here’s a list of some of the best ones.
Masters of Scale
Okay so this one is self explanatory. To get rich in the first place, you need to think rich – and there’s nothing like listening to other high-net-worth individuals ramble on about how they made their fortune.
If you want to skip the whole shebang, we recommend at least giving the 2017 Mark Zuckerberg episode a go.
The Rich Dad Radio Show
If you’ve ever googled “what are the best books to read if you want to be rich”, then you’re probably familiar with Rich Dad, Poor Dad. Its author, Robert Kiyosaki, has launched this rather rebellious podcast, for those in looking to get rich on the long haul.
Just Enough Family
Going over the rise and fall of one of America’s wealthiest families, The Steinbergs, this podcast isn’t necessarily about getting rich, but about how to live (and not) like one.
Queen of The Con
Sometimes its entertaining to view the world of the one percents from a different angle, in this podcast’s case from the perspective of a con-master. Claiming she was Irish royalty, Mair Smyth pulled a whole Anna-Delvey before Anna Delve was even a thing.
Broke Billionaire Podcast
This one’s interesting because you get to listen to broke ass guys, with billionaire-like aspirations. It can go one of two ways, either they make it and you’ll be listening along, or you will, quite literally be listening to two delusional broke guys. Either way, it sounds fun.
Here’s a woman talking about entrepreneurship, finance, real estate and all the in-between. Through interviews with psychologists, experts and investors (amongst many others), Paula Pant demystifies how to make the most of all kinds of finite resources.
