Over the last few years, the surge in popularity of podcasts has been impressive. Even more so in the crypto community. Perhaps because crypto enthusiasts love sharing their knowledge with others or maybe because it's hard to find quality information on crypto through traditional news outlets. There are a variety of great crypto podcasts each with a slightly different focus. If you want to learn about crypto, there's no better and more efficient way than to begin listening to podcasts. In this post we'll walk you through the best cryptocurrency podcasts and explain what you can expect from each of them.

For those who are completely new to crypto we recommend reading our post on how Bitcoin works.

The Best Crypto Podcasts


text Unchained is a podcast by US-journalist Laura Shin. It's one of the most well-known podcasts in the industry and covers everything from recent developments to interviews with important thought leaders. The podcast is relatively non-technical, making it a great one for beginners wanting to learn more about the different applications of crypto. Moreover, Laura asks the right questions and always slows down her guests to make sure newcomers can follow.

The Pomp Podcast

text The Pomp Podcast (previously 'Off The Chain') is another very well-known show in the crypto community. One could almost call it 'mainstream' (for crypto standards). Anthony is a co-founder of the investment firm Morgan Creek Digital Assets backed by the multi-billion dollar asset manager Creek Capital Management. He is also famous for his passionate Bitcoin tweets on Twitter where he has more than 300K followers.

We invite the founders behind those products and discuss how they started their company, how they market their products and all sort of other relevant questions for crypto interested folks. We just started it and would love you to tune in!

text Bankless is a relatively new podcast by crypto blogger Ryan Adams and co-host David Hoffman.

It's a great introduction into the amazing world of Ethereum.
