As a college-bound student, it’s important to arm yourself with skills that really matter — social awareness, critical thinking skills, problem-solving abilities, monetary self-control and the drive to challenge conventional thinking.
You probably already have a ton of things on your plate. So, instead of giving you another lengthy article or book to read about self-improvement, we’ve listed five podcasts that are perfect for anyone looking to boost their confidence, increase their self-awareness or simply have more topics to talk about with new acquaintances.
1. ‘Examining Ethics’
Examining Ethics doesn’t provide answers to ethical dilemmas, but instead leaves listeners with tools and ideas from some of the biggest names in moral philosophy and ethics. Academic philosophy and ethics can be difficult to understand, but this podcast seeks to bridge the gap between scholars and everyone else.

Radical Personal Finance seeks to give you both the information and the actionable inspiration you need to financially improve your life and lifestyle in a significant way.
