Essential Listening: The Power of Intuition

Posted In: Economics, Weekend Reads

There is little doubt that we are in the midst of a podcasting boom. There is no shortage of aspiring podcasters looking to elbow their way into the space. Stephen Dubner of Freakonomics fame and James Altucher are both veterans of the form, and in their Question of the Day podcast, tackle the question of what aspiring podcasters need to do to become successful.

Even though we have pushed into a new year, there are still some “best of” podcast lists worthy of note. The Casties, Quartz‘s annual awards highlighting the best podcasts of 2015, were recently published. Song Exploder, which deconstructs songs with the assistance of the artist, was declared the best overall podcast. Also, Drake Baer and Richard Feloni at Business Insider posted a list of 18 podcasts that will “make you smarter,” one of which, 99% Invisible, explores the world of everyday design.

For another week, we are finance-light, so feel free to check out previous weeks’ editions of Essential Listening. The new year is a great time to take up some new habits. The following podcasts are a good start to a new listening regime.

Feel free to leave a comment with other podcasts Enterprising Investor readers/listeners might enjoy. I may highlight your suggestion in this ongoing series on the world of podcasting.
