Starting a business may look cool but in reality, being an entrepreneur is a grueling challenge that many attempt but few truly succeed.

As Linkedin founder turned VC Reid Hoffman says — “Starting a company is like jumping off a cliff and assembling the airplane on the way down.”

For those who are crazy enough to jump off the cliff, we’ve hand-built this list of 60+ podcasts that will help you make you a better entrepreneur and increase your chances of success.

1. 500 Startups

Typical episodes run between 15 and 40 minutes and features people who have bet on themselves on won. New shows are generally released on a bi or tri-monthly schedule.
