The popularity of podcasts has exploded over the last couple of years. And there's a good reason for that. You can listen to them anytime and they often hold nuggets of wisdom that can help us in our day to day lives.
I pretty much put one of every time I get into the car or start walking somewhere.
Bigger Pockets is the go-to resource for real estate news and education and their podcast is a great way for you to consume some of the valuable information shared.
Hosts Joshua Dorkin and Brandon Turner are both experienced investors with a wealth of experience. However, it’s not their experience necessarily, that gets them to the top of our list. They keep a fun light tone, even whilst exploring complex (and dare we say sometimes dry) topics. On top of this, they have a huge array of connections and as such have had guests on to cover every conceivable niche of the business.
From buy-and-hold; to commercial real estate; to Airbnb; to flipping houses. If you want to know about it, the BiggerPockets’ real estate investing podcast has covered it, and will cover it again from another angle.
If there’s a one-size-fits-all real estate investing podcast out there that covers it all, this is it.

There’s always something new to learn. The prospect is daunting, scary even, truth be told. I remember walking into the British library when I was younger and just looking around the rooms and rooms filled with stacks upon stacks of books and wondering how long would it take to read them all?
No matter how many books you read, no matter how many videos you watch you’ll never know everything. The best we can do is continually learn. Podcasts are a great way to consume knowledge on the go and get you thinking about the steps you can take next on your path to success.
