How I Built This
This NPR podcast, hosted by Guy Raz, interviews innovators, entrepreneurs and idealists to uncover and discuss the movements they built. Raz interviews pertinent and engaging entrepreneurs from a diverse background of industries like the founders of LARABAR, Headspace, Stitch Fix, and Yelp.

Founder of So Money, Farnoosh Torabi aims to “create a safe and nonjudgmental environment,” where people can share their financial perspective, money mistakes and personal finance stories. This podcast has allowed me (and many others) to sift through the panic induced when discussing money and view personal finances with an analytical lens. All those things they never taught in school are outlined here in daily doses of mini-breakthroughs. Be sure to tune in.
