Best podcasts for Builders

January 22nd, 2024
We’ve been experiencing the boom of podcasts for several years now. For creators, it’s a cheap and relatively easy channel to manage, and for listeners, it provides easy access to quality content on a variety of topics, making it extremely easy to listen anytime anywhere. Today, let’s talk about what builders listen to – those individuals who invest their passion, effort, and time into building businesses from scratch. They listen to podcasts looking for learnings and inspiration that can help them on their mission to create the maximum value. However, the best podcast isn’t necessarily the one with the most followers or the highest number of plays; it’s the one that contributes the most to you at the moment you’re listening. Last year it might have been one, and this year it will be another. I can’t recommend the ultimate podcast, but I can share with you some high-quality ones that bring a lot to the community. At the end of the article, I’ll share our favorite podcast at Byld, for anyone interested in knowing more about Corporate Venture Building.
