Listening to other entrepreneurs who've found success in their industry is a fantastic way to learn and grow as a startup founder. You may not have time to sit and chat with most of them, but you can listen to them. Here are nine great podcasts for aspiring entrepreneurs - suggested by members of YEC.
1. "The Fizzle Show"
The guys on The Fizzle Show always have great guests. Corbett Barr, Chase Reeves and Caleb Wojcik consistently deliver the perfect mix of entertainment and education. This trio covers everything from entrepreneur psychology to product, pricing and content strategies. The founder stories are interesting, but the advice is what will leave you coming back for more.

2. "I Love Marketing"
The I Love Marketing Podcast with Joe Polish and Dean Jackson is pure gold. They share marketing gems that, if applied properly, can skyrocket your business. I've personally applied many of their tactics in our businesses and client businesses and have seen enormous results! Tweet This Podcast - Patrick Conley, Automation Heroes
Mixergy with Andrew Warner features interviews with entrepreneurs. You learn all kinds of interesting things not just about business, but about the people who are motivated to build and create and how they've been able to make it happen. Tweet This Podcast - Ty Morse, Songwhale
4. "From Scratch"
From Scratch with Jessica Harris is a great podcast that covers all of the basics of being an entrepreneur with a direct, informational delivery and a wit that helps break up an otherwise dreary discussion. Tweet This Podcast - Rob Fulton, Matikis
The eCommerceFuel podcast with Andrew Youderian has a ton of great guests and covers all aspects of running/buying/selling ecommerce businesses. The host runs a small ecommerce site himself, so he is in the same shoes as his listeners which makes the podcast very relatable. Tweet This Podcast - Josh Weiss, Bluegala
6. Fat Burning Man
In Fat Burning Man, Abel James doesn't just focus on the benefits of taking care of your body. Every week he also discusses productivity and mental health with his guests. I find the "Fat Burning Man" podcast to be the perfect type of content for a brief vacation from "all things business" that still features content that can be applied to many things in life.

7. "The Nerdist"
There are tons of great startup focused podcasts. If you're looking for something slightly off beat, consider The Nerdist with Chris Hardwick. The show often features accomplished actors, comedians and other individuals who have succeeded by taking the road less traveled, who share pretty candid insights into their journeys and mindsets. Tweet This Podcast - Andrew Thomas, SkyBell Technologies, Inc.
8. "This Is Your Life"
This Is Your Life by Michael Hyatt is a great podcast. It offers tips on improving your general entrepreneurial skills such as leadership, focus, motivation and identifying your passions. Tweet This Podcast - Andrew Schrage, Money Crashers Personal Finance
9. "This Week in Startups"
This Week in Startups with Jason Calacanis is a slightly older podcast. Every week there's an interview with an entrepreneur or investor and a news round table with timely information. The former has a ton of value. Calacanis (@Jason on Twitter) doesn't let his subjects get away with vague answers. He dives deep into the decision-making process and emotions that go into startups.
