“Learning never exhausts the mind.”Leonardo da Vinci
Podcasts have become one of the biggest and most important platforms creators can utilise in the 21st century. In the ₿itcoin space, this is no different. Books, Twitter and podcasts are all prominent ways Bitcoiners learn and get their information about this incredible technology. Arguably, podcasts are the biggest of all three.
Podcasts deliver something unique – information at your own pace. No longer do you need to go to the effort of carrying a tonne of books around (ugh, so much effort), finding someplace quiet to read, and then storing them when you’re done. Even buying the book in the first place, which, let’s face it, can get expensive, is technically a net-negative, compared with a podcast. You can literally turn on your phone, pick a podcast episode to listen to and start learning…
Podcasts have changed the game in the media and information industry. The amount of knowledge about Bitcoin sitting in podcasts is mind-blowing… 🤯. All the best Bitcoin minds are willing to take you on a journey to show you just how deep the rabbit hole goes. Anytime, anywhere. Whenever you’re ready. No one has yet found the bottom.
Sometimes people may argue that Bitcoin podcasts can get a bit repetitive – same guests, same questions, different hosts. These people are not digging hard enough. Each host offers something special and unique, and, besides, you don’t always have to listen to the new podcasts! Go back in time and find something you like, because the depth and breadth of information and understanding now out there, about Bitcoin, these days is incredible.
On the other hand, there is also a lot of misinformation swirling about Bitcoin, which is often created by people who haven’t yet taken the time to learn about this incredible technology.
All of the best podcasts are made by Bitcoiners for Bitcoiners. There are so many good podcasts nowadays, it’s difficult to fit them all on one list, but we’re gonna try…
Here – in no particular order – are ten Bitcoin podcasts we recommend you listen to to really grok why you should be stacking sats and and saving in Bitcoin with Amber.

Even though Bitcoin isn’t the main focus of every episode, Pysh always finds a way to creatively tie it in. Definitely listen to some of the earlier episodes of Bitcoin Fundamentals, if you’re a beginner. Although, anything you choose will deliver A+ content.

If you’re looking for something less mainstream – this is it. Simply Bitcoin truly represents those who make Bitcoin… The plebs. Sometimes it is important to realise that the “celebrities” of the space don’t make up the majority of the space. The less known plebs are those who care about Bitcoin – just as much, if not even more. Read the Blocksize Wars to see how important these people are for Bitcoin. Simply Bitcoin, is also a super fun listen if you want to catch up on any of the news in the Bitcoin space, even the spicy stuff.
