There’s a good chance you’re spending this time working out how to best recover, re-launch or rebuild your business. And while no one is going to deny that this isn’t a massively stressful time, it’s also possibly the only point in your career you’ll ever have a huge amount of time on your hands. Regardless of how you choose to use it, we recommend getting these business-focused podcasts in your ears. They might just inspire your next big move!

Board Level
Created by the Australian Institute of Company Directors, it’s about women in directorship. It focusses on career progression, while also getting a deeper understanding of governance.

Group Chat  
The podcast keeps things light and a little less serious which is what we all need right now. It’s hosted by three successful guys who happen to be friends, so while they deliver facts on all things business, culture and current affairs, they talk about them in the most entertaining way which makes a nice change from some business podcasts that can often be quite intense.

Founders on Air
Hosted by Mike Rosenbaum and Steve Orenstein, the podcast provides an awesome insight into founders and their journey. It covers the challenges, risks, wins and losses that they’ve survived, and offers advice on how you can too.

The Pitch
It’s would-be entrepreneurs pitching their realises to real investors. Think Shark Tank, but in podcast form. Each episode takes listeners behind closed doors to the critical moment when aspiring entrepreneurs put it all on the line. While it offers a glimpse into the high-stakes world of venture capital, it’s really a show about human relationships: how people sell their ideas, what makes investors tick, and how these initial conversations can bloom into business deals—or die on the vine.

As Told by Nomads
Hosted by digital marketing specialist Tayo Rockson, ATBN offers up various insights to entrepreneurs looking to make their mark in the business world with the help of digital marketing. If you’re looking for a creative, out-of-the-box approach to help build your business and develop your marketing strategy, then this is a great podcast to check out.

RISE
Featuring “bold conversations” with business heavyweights and industry leaders, audiences get a “real-life takeaway” and actionable information to help grow their business. The show is hosted by Rachel Hollis, a New York Times Best Selling author and motivational speaker.
