Podcasts for Startup Founders and What You’re Going to Learn

I love learning by listening to podcasts. My favorite ones are the ones packed with knowledge and are not too long. I’ve been trying a bunch and found some great ones that are worth my time, which I will cover here: 

Indie Hackers

Experienced operators sharing lessons learned and advice for building startups 

Build with Maggie Crowley by Drift

Thought leaders that share useful advice 

The NFX Podcast

High quality content from the accelerator and fund that brings advice from years of building many successful startups  

OV BUILD by OpenView Ventures

Open View is a content machine! Similar to First Round Review (tho they only have articles, no podcast). Lots of great speakers to learn about all things building great products and companies. 

Startup Therapy

How I Built This 

Inspirational stories from successful entrepreneurs, talks about the ups and downs, and how they made it.  

The Pitch

A well produced podcast where entrepreneurs pitch to a live panel of investors and get an instant yes or no answer as well as feedback about what to improve. Can be a great example for founders on how to pitch and not to pitch.
