    A 🔥 NEW Podcast filled with INSPIRING stories & REAL WORLD tactics for Entrepreneurs. Oh & because I'm totally transparent, I'm the host 😉. I created the podcast because I got tired of the 💩 20-minute scripted entrepreneur podcasts. I also chat with entrepreneurs in a variety of industries (not just tech). Check EP1 out for 30 seconds, you won't be disappointed like my mother is in me 🙊...

    Totally recommend this podcast. I love the anecdotal references throughout the entire series. The podcast both unveils the physical and emotional hurdles of startups and the quirky transitions are fun. Ried Hoffman's voice is both soothing and inspiring which helps relay his passion for teaching the world about startups.

    It doesn't muck with a lot of the details, but it's great stories from the early days of huge successes. I love how it hones in on the creative decisions and actions entrepreneurs had to make to get their startup to click.

    I agree with Nicholas on this one. You won't learn a whole lot of technical knowledge from this NPR podcast, but you really get to hear "the stories behind the movements that they built". I've listened to all of them; I think the Buzzfeed episode was my favourite.

    Success stories and advice for side business software entrepreneurs. It is a really chill podcast that pumps you up to make cool things. Bonus: @csallen is an amazing interviewer, he can summarize what people say so naturally so there are always amazing takehomes. 12/10 🔥🔥 He recently featured product hunt's 2016 maker of the year @mubashariqbal.
    I recommend this too! It's actually the only podcast i use my time hearing.

    I have been listening to Ben & David for about a year and a half now. The shows are always well researched and informative. Really enjoy the history and facts around the acquisitions and IPOs that they cover. Highly recommend the podcast to anyone in the startup or technology space.

    Acquired is fantastic. Well researched and insightful analysis, but also very fun. The history section is great and full of interesting stories. One of my favorite tech podcasts.

  13. Big fan of Gimlet's StartUp Podcast. Super well produced and valuable lessons in each episode.
    Unlike many other similar podcasts, it doesn't focus exclusively on success stories, so the perspective it provides is far more realistic.

    It is not strictly business related podcast, but I strongly advise you to give it a go. Jocko Willing is a well decorated former navy seal sharing some valuable ideas on how to be a great leader. After all every business needs a great leader to succeed.

    I just launched this curated list of interviews and podcasts yesterday, It is not exactly a standalone podcast like you mentioned but I had such an extended youtube history of great content I figured putting them into one clean website would be an interesting approach. Feel free to suggest videos to add as well!
