Your headphones can make you wealthy. If you want achieve financial independence, you need to level up your financial literacy. But who has time to find and read all the personal finance content out there? As a busy working mom with two tiny humans, I certainly don’t have the time or energy to open a takeout menu, let alone a finance book. If you want to break the paycheque-to-paycheque cycle, level up your investing game, or just take a deep dive into the Canadian economy, finance podcasts are your new best friend. I’ve put together a comprehensive list of the 40 best finance podcasts every Canadian should listen to.

Because Money

This is one of the most popular finance podcasts in Canada and for good reason. Hosts Sandi, Chris, and John are a dynamic trio who bring witty, engaging and informative content to the table. There are currently 6 seasons of the Because Money podcast, so you have an incredible roster of episodes to choose from. 

Twice a month, the trio sit down with a new guest to unpack real financial issues affecting everyday Canadians. The podcast has been on pause since March 2020, but hopefully this gem will return to the airwaves soon.
