Here are my favorites, categorized based on the majority of the topics they cover.
The Rabbit Hole
These are podcasts that are ideal for understanding the overall reasons why the crypto revolution is happening and will continue to grow in the coming years.
- What is Money – Robert Breedlove
Excellent to get you started down the many rabbit holes that Bitcoin can lead you down. Will turn you into a rebel if you aren’t one already.
- The Bitcoin Standard Podcast – Saifedean Ammous
A good way to learn about Austrian economics, sound money and a number of controversial topics addressed in a no-nonsense way.
- On the Brink – Matt Walsh and Nic Carter

- Wake Up – Aleks Svetski
The world as seen from the eyes of a Bitcoin maximalist. Good if you want to have some of your conventional ideas challenged.
Bitcoin is the precursor to everything else that has happened in the crypto space, and in my opinion, it is essential to understand the philosophy and principles of Bitcoin before moving to anything else. These podcasts will help you on your journey.

- The Keyvan Davani Connection – Keyvani Davani
Bitcoin technical topics coupled with economical and political underpinnings of the Bitcoin movement.
A selection of podcasts that deal with various topics in crypto. I use these to keep abreast of all the new facets of this technology.
- Unchained – Laura Shin
Covers big topics in crypto in a no-nonsense way. One of the most high-quality consistent podcasts over the past years.
The best podcast about Ethereum and DeFi. I’m also a paying subscriber to the Bankless newsletter and community.
- The Breakdown – Nathaniel Whittemore
Probably the best podcast to keep up with crypto news.

NFTs are one of my major passions and thus I also have a selection of podcasts focused on this topic. However, I get most of my info from Discord channels or other avenues rather than podcasts.
- Proof – Kevin Rose

Zeneca is a legend in the space. Great show to keep updated about BAYC and other big projects, but can also contain a lot of extra talk.

Mostly news-related. I listen to it only when there is a major item that catches my attention and seems important to understand.
- The First Mint
Mostly focussed on NBA Top Shot (which I’m not personally interested in) but some occasional great topics about the wider NFT space.
