Inspired Money hosted by Andy Wang
"Do well by doing good. From making it to giving it away, Inspired Money means making a difference, creating something bigger than oneself, and making the world a better place."
I was doubtful that I'd like this podcast. A show about money? Hosted by a financial advisor? Not an obvious fit. But I was drawn in by the offbeat guest list: the guitarist for Weird Al Yankovic, a former WWE wrestler, the star of Bravo's Million Dollar Listing New York — say what? You had me at Bravo! From there I spent the next four hours listening to this podcast. Everything works here; the guests are quirky and engaging (props to Andy who says he's "never shy" in approaching people for interviews), the questions are thoughtful and perhaps best of all, Andy is an excellent listener. Inspired Money is an impressive example of what a passionate independent podcaster can pull off, despite having a "day job."
[P.S. Andy is also the co-founder of Asian American Podcasters — so check that out, too.]
