Get your headphones ready and settle in.

In no particular order, here are the 39 best accounting podcasts on the market right now:

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 public accounting profession, Ron Baker and Ed Kless, The Soul of Enterprise podcast is certainly one of the best 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 CPA and you’re looking for verifiable CPD/CPE credits to go along with some pretty cool content, be 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.
