So Money: 8 Financial Podcasts To Make Your Money Grow

We may not all have Vince Vaughn’s character from the movie Swingers following us around and constantly reminding us, “Dude, you’re so money!” but we do have the next best thing: financial podcasts that can help make us feel like a money tree is, in fact, growing outside in our backyard. 

If you are still unsure of what a podcast is, think about our dusty old friend, the radio. Podcasts are simply radio shows served up to us by the internet. And, most are free. Think of just about any topic under the big ball of fire in the sky and there’s probably a podcast about it, including no shortage of podcasts about life on the beat

Length Does Matter

Speaking of beats, no matter how much you love yours, you probably don’t want to work forever. Guess what? There’s a podcast for that. Financial podcasts are easy to access and geared toward people who aren’t necessarily money experts, but who want to learn how to make smart money decisions so it’s working for them, even when they do eventually stop working.

Another fact about length (of your career): Whether you’re in a Class A or a Class B day in and day out, you’ll likely retire at a much younger age than your civilian friends, even if you don’t want to. Injuries, stress, wear and tear on the ol’ dome, speed up the timeline for retiring. Incidentally, the National Police and Fire Benefits Association is a non-profit organization that offers extremely affordable long-term care insurance to people just like you.
