Best Podcasts to Listen to: I Will Teach You to be Rich

Photo Credit: (

Although the title “I Will Teach You to be Rich” sounds gimmicky, Ramit Sethi’s podcast is actually quite an interesting and informative listen. Rather than talking about his own personal experiences, each episode of the show focuses on a couple that Sethi picks for the show.

In each episode, Sethi listens to the couple’s stories and tries to provide guidance wherever possible. The topic of the show is finances, and how each couple can change/improve their financial habits. In some of the episodes, the topic is about a rich couple who have trouble spending their money (for example, they may be worth $5 million but argue over $10 of spending). In other episodes, it may be about a couple who are really struggling with their finances and cannot get out of debt.

All of the stories on the podcast are really interesting to listen to, as it seems hard to believe how little basic financial literacy some of these people have (even if they have incredible jobs). Some of the guests don’t even know how credit card works, thus falling into more and more debt from not paying off interest payments; while this may seem unbelievable to financially literate people, hearing these stories reinforces that much of the population does not know basic finance.

Even if a lot of the content that Sethi discusses seems self-explanatory, I enjoy hearing his input and reasoning behind doing certain things. Also, some of the topics are a bit confusing and interesting to learn about as someone in the workforce.
