CFO Thought Leader

Cohosted by finance professionals Jack Sweeney, Ethan Carlson, and Steve Player, CFO Thought Leader features in-depth interviews with top CFOs in a variety of industries who drive change within their company. They might take a different approach to manage growth in a high-tech company, refocus the CFO role on people instead of metrics, or shift traditional ways of doing things to newer methods that have a more positive impact on the organization. Guests provide insight into leadership and business ideals. Topics include identifying the levers of efficient growth, when your tactic becomes your strategy, and establishing your work ethos.

Motley Fool Money

Hosted by Chris Hill and a panel of Motley Fool Investment analysists, Motley Fool Money covers how the week’s top business news and financial headlines impact investors. Interviews with bestselling authors and industry experts, as well as an inside look at stocks on the analysts’ radar, are included.

Freakonomics Radio

Hosted by economist Steven D. Levitt and journalist Stephen J. Dubner, coauthors of Freakonomics, Freakonomics Radio explores counter-intuitive ideas that challenge one or more preconceived ideas the majority of people have. Being able to challenge these long-held ideas is part of being a great CFO, CEO, or other business leaders. Dubner talks with Nobel laureates, intellectuals, and entrepreneurs about topics like taxes, economic growth, and sports gambling.
