There are over 2 million podcasts published currently around the world – it’s hard to figure out which ones are worth your time, especially now that most professionals don’t have a lengthy commute to count on. Finance and accounting podcasts are usually most appealing to professionals in those fields of work – but they’re actually most beneficial to entrepreneurs and business owners who manage, delegate, or contract out accounting and finance functions. Here are a few we recommend checking out.

Masters of Scale

Hosted by Reid Hoffman, the co-founder of LinkedIn and current partner at venture capital firm Greylock Partners, the Masters of Scale podcast provides insight on how to successfully scale new businesses with a heavy-hitting guest list of founders and CEOs. In addition to those discussions, Masters of Scale also releases a “Rapid Response” episode each week hosted by Bob Safian, former Fast Company editor, which offers real-time wisdom from known business leaders in fast-changing situations.

(Want to catch up on the gems from earlier episodes? Check out the audio version of Hoffman’s recently released book based on the podcast: Masters of Scale, Surprising Truths from the World’s Most Successful Entrepreneurs. Each chapter focuses on a different theory of scale, and TechCrunch describes it as a “pep talk from a well-networked, optimistic mentor who is naturally in your corner.”)
