When it comes to learning there are three main styles.
Some people are visual learners — which means you learn better either by reading or seeing pictures.
Others are tactile learners who prefer learning by touching and doing. You tend to understand and remember things better through physical movement.
Last but not least, some people (like myself) are auditory learners who learn better by hearing and listening. They tend to understand and remember better things that they have heard.
The great thing about this is that there are resources that cater to everyone as podcasts cater to auditory learners and can be consumed while doing chores or on your commute.

Personal Finance Podcasts Singapore
These first three podcasts cater to a Singapore based audience by providing great personal finance advice as well as tips about investing and entrepreneurship.
1) Money Hacks Podcast — The Business Times
When I wanted to learn more about personal finance, I was glad to find that there were a couple of podcasts catered to a Singaporean audience.
As useful as the international podcasts were, there were some uniquely Singapore quirks that these podcasts could not address.
Enter Money Hacks, a podcast by the people running the Business Times.
Every week the episodes would cover personal finance topics and break them down into actionable financial tips.
What I liked about this podcast is that the host Chris Lim will talk to local experts like Lewis Ng, the Chief Commercial Officer of Carousell, who discusses property trends in 2020 and Do it Yourself property shopping and buying.
The podcasts also caters to a wide audience and cover topics like insurance, credit cards, mortgages, entrepreneurship and more.
The last group of podcasts are catered towards investing and provides excellent knowledge for all types of investors.
7) InvestED: The Rule #1 Investing Podcast
The InvestED: The Rule #1 Investing Podcast is run by Phil Town and his daughter Danielle Town.
He is a hedge fund manager and author of Rule #1, Invested and Payback Time; three investment books that made it on the New York Times Bestseller list.
He hosts the podcast with his daughter, a fellow New York Times Bestselling investment book author and attorney.
I like how the podcast is rather beginner-friendly as episodes like episode 14 teach you how to make your first trade, while episode 19 teaches you about growth rates and its importance of judging the quality of a business.
One of the latest episodes also discusses investing in technology companies like Amazon.
Anyone who wants an insider’s take on how to make the stock market work for you, take note.
Next up we have Michael Covel’s podcast, which has over eight million listens.
Micheal Covel is probably the most experienced podcaster on this list.
I would recommend this if you would like to broaden your mind’s horizon when it comes to investing, as the podcast provides alternative views on the markets compared to traditional news outlet narratives.
He also interviewed some wonderful guests with Nobel Prize winners and internationally renowned investors coming on the show.
I quite liked the episode that featured Micheal Dever, founder of Brandywine Asset Management who provided great insight on the Coronavirus crisis and U.S. equities
But if you are a do it yourself (DIY) investor, Money for The Rest of Us is catered towards you.
The podcast is produced and hosted by David J. Stein, who has years of experience investing professionally. He was the Chief Investment Strategist at Fund Evaluation Group, managing billions of dollars worth of assets.
The podcast has one overarching theme: to help people save and invest enough money for the retirement of their dreams.
The podcast covers topics like asset allocation, how monetary policy will impact the markets and how to invest to beat inflation in ways that are simple and easy to understand.
You should check out the episode How to Better Manage Risk where Stein discussed three steps to assess and manage risk when investing.
