Do you think you know about finance? According to the most recent study, only 42% of South Africans are financially literate.

One of the easiest ways to learn about finance is by plugging into podcasts that unpack the complicated world of finance. These are 5 finance podcasts that will help you get a grip on your finances.

Like Geddes, the Stripped Money Podcast keeps finance simple. This no-jargon podcast is accessible for everyone - whether you’re a finance veteran or you’re just wanting to save some money while you redecorate your home.

The Money Show

Most South Africans are probably already familiar with 702’s The Money Show with Bruce Whitfield. But now, you can listen to the show's archive in podcast format. The best part is that the show is broken into bite-size chunks so you can stay in the know, even if you’ve only got 3 minutes to listen.

The show segments, taken from full episodes which are also available, cover topics like “Do unions matter?” and “Should you take a balloon payment?”. These big questions are answered in a matter of minutes with the inclusion of experts.

They discuss topics like art collecting, the music industry, investing on a hippy budget, and adulting with your finances. While this show takes a lighter approach than traditional money shows, it's full of good insight for even better returns.
