Their line up of guests is top notch, filled with awe-inspiring founders and developers of apps and services you’ve definitely used.

3. The Lean Startup Podcast
Mark Graban is obsessed with spreading the message of lean to all organizations.  What is lean?“ It’s a set of management practices based on the Toyota Production System (TPS) but it was coined by a group of MIT researchers who wrote the book The Machine That Changed the World. Listening to his podcast is a crash course in ultra efficiency and perfect for anyone who wants to directly improve morale, output, cost, quality and more.

4. Product People Podcast
Even if you aren’t a product designer, everyone appreciates experiencing a frictionless product or service. If you’re “everyone” — you can definitely appreciate the unique perspective of Justin Jackson, a product person, and his interviews with the likes of Jason Fried, Hiten Shah, and Rob Wallingget — they get down to brass tacks on how to build a seamless product or user experience.

6. Entrepreneur On Fire
In 2013, it was voted as one of the top podcasts according to Apple iTunes, and with good reason. John Leed Dumas cuts to the chase, asking his guests to start by sharing their greatest failure. It’s a humbling, inspiring and motivating look through the lens of some of the greatest game changers.
