You’ve likely heard about all of the existing gender “gaps” when it comes to women and money.
Another gender gap that exists is related to financial literacy. While reports say it’s beginning to close, the Women Who Money/Women’s Money Talk team wants to ensure we amplify as many different sources of financial education as we can.
If you think there aren’t many women talking about money, think again.
While we haven’t closed any of the gaps, women are certainly working on pushing the message out that we need to take control of our finances and learn ways to manage our money and invest for the future.
Today, we’re highlighting personal finance podcasts exclusively hosted by women in 2019.
Some of these women are experts in finance and others have struggled to get their financial “acts” together. All of them have great information and stories to share with their listeners.
We hope you find some great podcasts to listen to and that you’ll share them with your friends and family! If you know a great personal finance podcast by a woman (or team of women) that we’ve missed, let us know.
*Note: In order to represent the women and their podcasts accurately, descriptions were taken from their “about” pages or from other information we were able to locate.
