If you’re like me, sometimes you can’t find the time to sit down and read a book or an article.
That’s why podcasts are great!
I listen to podcasts on the way to work or when I’m exercising. It’s a great productivity hack.
We’re lucking to have so many content creators in the Australian FIRE community willing to share their knowledge through podcasts.
Here at Chatting FIRE, we’re trying to create the complete list of Australian FIRE podcasts.
Here are the podcasts we’ve discovered so far (in no particular order). If we’ve missed one let us know.
Arguably the most popular podcast in the Australian FIRE community is the Aussie FireBug Podcast. The host of the show is the Aussie FireBug who is very open about his financial position and current investments. Aussie FireBug has had many great guests who are well known in the FIRE scene and has a popular segment “Ask FireBug Fridays” where he answers listener questions.
What their listeners say: “I was referred to the Aussie Firebug website by a friend and have now gotten into the podcasts. I have have found these podcasts very useful and interesting, especially the interviews with people from companies such as GenLife, Vanguard, Betashares and Peter Thornhill. I’ve also enjoyed listening to other people’s journeys on their way to FIRE. Great job, Aussie Firebug”
