Wow

This is a really underrated podcast. If you want to hear first hand experiences from people who want to change the world and make money while doing it then this is for you. It plays like a conversation with a friend over lunch but you can get some real insight about what it means to be an entrepreneur. It kind of reminds me of 99% Invisible (a podcast about design and the invisible systems around us) so if you like that you’d probably like this.

Fun and Informative Interviews

This podcast series is really well done and caters to young entrepreneurs. Interviews are very informative about startups and funding and the process of getting going from scratch. Would recommend to anyone interested in starting uo a business.

Authentic interviews with passionate founders

Authentic interviews with folks navigating the brass tacks of pursuing passion for their paycheck.

Edward is an excellent interviewer — alternately hanging back to let his guests tell their story, and gently lobbing in questions that help unlock the core motivations, struggles and joys of this entrepreneurship of passion path.

You’ll learn things you’ll use to make your life better.

Plus he has a great podcast voice. Though its probably just the microphone. :)
