How I Built This
Former foreign correspondent Guy Raz has experience being thrown into the deep end – he went from a young freelance reporter to NPR’s Berlin Bureau Chief in only a few years. Now he chats with uber-successful entrepreneurs and innovators about their business journeys, humble beginnings, successes, and failures. Guests on his show include the CEO’s of LinkedIn, Instagram, Spanx, Ben & Jerry’s and Buzzfeed.
The Pineapple Project
Claire Hooper, Aussie comedian and co-host of The Great Australian Bake Off, admits she needs help with her finances (um, who doesn’t!). She’s on a mission to learn everything she can about budgeting, superannuation and investing money where it counts. Why the Pineapple Project? “Because like money, pineapples can be sweet, but a prick to deal with if you don’t know what you’re doing,” says Claire. The Pineapple Project hit the #1 spot on iTunes before the first episode had even gone live, it’s our new fave.
If you need help building a personal brand, then Chris Tucker’s podcast is perfect for you. The motivational speaker, serial entrepreneur and author believes the best way to grow a successful business is your authenticity and your uniqueness. Chris also delves into other areas like how-to build your video strategy, productivity and social media.
If you love true crime podcasts, you’ve probably already heard about the Dirty John podcast hosted by Christopher Goffard from the L.A. Times. If you’ve missed all the hype, go straight to iTunes and download it. Do not Google what happens, you’ll be blown away. US network, Bravo is also rumoured to be bringing the podcast to life in a two-season tv series.
The Business Experiment
When two Aussie female entrepreneurs got together to chat all things business, they never anticipated a discussion between friends would resonate with listeners in over 60 countries. Jemimah Ashleigh and Shevonne Joyce discuss topics like “How to business through big life bleeps” and “What separates the Wantrepreneurs from the Entrepreneurs?”
This week, we learned about the world’s first podcast specifically designed to share inspiring stories of Indigenous entrepreneurs. The Indigipreneur podcast is going to share amazing stories from Indigenous tech startups, the largest Indigenous travel agency in Australia and even a forex trader in outback Australia. But they need the funds to get the project off the ground, head to Start Some Good to learn more.
