5 Great Podcasts for Social Entrepreneurs

Have you ever been on the brink of a big project and change and just felt the oil in your lamp running out? Motivation and inspiration are two essential resources that can feel like work to upkeep. One way I’ve been nourishing my creative imagination is by listening to Podcasts. I wasn’t really a podcast person until this year. So pardon me for being late to the party.

Here are five great podcasts for encouraging and inspiring your social imagination.

Social Entrepreneur

Tony Loyd wrote the book Crazy Good Advice: 10 Lessons Learned from 150 Leading Social Entrepreneurs. I haven’t read it yet but since hearing about it, I gave his podcast a listen. The Social Entrepreneur podcast gives advice to aspiring and early-stage social entrepreneurs telling positive stories from underrepresented voices, and focusing on solutions.

The Redemptive Edge

Praxis Partner, Andy Crouch, talks with founders about the way their backgrounds have uniquely prepared them to work on the problems and opportunities they’ve chosen. The Redemptive Edge is based on Praxis’ understanding about redemptive entrepreneurship, businesses seeking to embody the gospel in creating and building a venture that leaves a meaningful impact on the world. You can read more about redemptive entrepreneurship here.

Wonder Podcast

You know that saying about how famous people put their underwear on one leg at a time like the rest of us? Well, Wonder, a podcast by Entrepreneurs’ Organization, places women entrepreneurs in conversation with thought leaders, giving insight into the ordinary challenges of extraordinary people.


Traction is a podcast from 2017. It spans 47 episodes where you can hear stories about the different ways entrepreneurs scrap their way to early results. If you’re feeling like there isn’t a clean cut road ahead of you, then you’ll definitely find some encouragement here.

NPR Up First

NPR produces Up First, a podcast with weekday episodes that brief you on big news items whether politics or pop culture. It goes without saying that doing social good stems from an understanding of what is happening in the world and who is affected. Your next venture could come to you by hearing about a need in the news.
