The Best Accounting Podcasts List

Without further ado, here’s the list in no particular order:

1) The Soul of Enterprise

Brought to you by two true thought-leaders in the profession, Ron Baker and Ed Kless, The Soul of Enterprise podcast is certainly one of the accounting podcasts that you absolutely need to have on your list. Conversations tend to skew towards topics around pricing, though there’s quite a fair bit of talk around finance, economics, and accounting as well.

2) LumiQ

If you’re a Canadian CPA and you’re looking for verifiable CPD credits to go along with some pretty cool content, by sure to check out LumiQ. It’s not free, but they have a pretty slick mobile app with some big-gun guests and top-notch production quality. Works great for firms that need to provide CPD credits to their team as well.

3) Cloud Stories with Heather Smith

Here’s a good one for those that like accounting technology. Cloud Stories with Heather Smith always has awesome guests (hey, even I was on it!) and she brings a technology-forward spin to the show. Highly recommended.

4) From the Trenches

I’ll list this one as one of my absolute favs. I’m a big fan of Paul Meissner and David Boyar’s From the Trenches show. Mostly because they don’t sugar-coat their thoughts on the profession, they highlight the news you should know about and the banter between each of them is fantastic.

5) Journal of Accountancy Podcast

If you’re looking for a US-focused accounting podcast that discusses key issues facing the profession, then the Journal of Accountancy Podcast should be on your list.

6) What’s Your And? with John Garrett

Here’s a neat one that I happened to be on as well. John Garrett’s What’s Your And? Podcast talks to CPA’s and accountants about the things they do and their passions outside of work. It’s a nice bridge between the corporate world and something a bit lighter. Very easy listening.

7) CPA Review & More

The CPA Review & More podcast hosted by Phil Yaeger interviews thought-leaders in the accounting space and is geared towards CPA’s to be and current CPA’s on topics such as marketing, cryptocurrency, technology and more.

How can you have an article about accounting podcasts and not list the Cloud Accounting Podcast here? A true heavy-weight in the space, co-hosts Blake Oliver & David Leary dissect the latest accounting news to dole out to their listeners on a weekly basis. An absolute must-listen. I was even fortunate enough to have them on my podcast to give tips to accountants about how they can start one of their own!

10) Growing Your Firm Podcast

Hosted by Jetpack Workflow‘s CEO, David Cristello, the maker of one the top-rated accounting practice management systems interviews accountants on the Growing Your Firm Podcast to understand how you can implement strategies to grow your accounting firm in innovative ways. I was lucky enough to be on the show and he also had an excellent episode with Ron Baker discussing value-pricing 2.0.

11) Where Accountants Go

Hosted by Mark Goldman CPA, the Where Accountants Go podcast was one that I really enjoyed being a guest on. Mark interviews different accountants to take listeners through their career choices and how they ended up where they currently are. It’s an easy listen.
