Financial literacy is key to having a healthy relationship with your money. If you’re a fan of podcasts, here are three of our favorite financial podcasts in 2023.

Frugal Friends is designed to help you control your spending without the guilt and shame that’s sometimes associated with strict budgeting. Hosts Jill Sirianni and Jen Smith say that being frugal isn’t about necessity, but about being a better steward of your time and resources. This podcast is informative yet relaxed and often funny—like a night out with two of your money-savvy friends! Episodes include “Going Plant-Based on a Budget,” “How to Hack Your Next Vacation” and “Tips to Avoid Impulse Spending” and are released twice a week wherever you get your podcasts.

How To Money, hosted by BFFs Joel and Matt, aims to provide the “knowledge and tools that normal folks need to thrive in areas like debt payoff, DIY investing, and crucial money tricks that will provide continuous help along your journey.” With a Facebook Group, a blog and a strong social media presence, it’s easy to join the How To Money community and really soak up all their great info. Episodes are released three times a week and include subjects like “Butchering Your Grocery Bill,” “Using Debt to Build Wealth” and “Solutions for Money Anxiety.”

Planet Money from NPR is one of the world’s highest-rated financial podcasts. With episodes running a little shorter than the average podcast, Planet Money aims to help you understand how the economy works and what drives it. Think less “personal finance” and more “big picture” understanding. With episodes like “Exploring Seinfeld through the lens of economics” and “The story of ‘Monopoly’ and American capitalism,” you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the role money plays in every aspect of your life and the world around you.
