The year is 2024 and podcasts are all the rage. Well, podcasts and maybe even the *gasp* re-emergence of cable TV (because honestly, how many streaming apps must we download before we put our foot down?!). But I digress - if you're working from home or flowing with the hybrid structure like our Klear Contributors, you may have exhausted all of your binge-worthy shows and are ready for something new. Fear not - we've compiled a list of MUST-LISTEN to podcasts for the ERP industry to keep you inspired, entertained, and up-to-date on the latest and greatest in our industry. Get cozy! ๐ŸŽ™๏ธ๐ŸŽงโ˜•


A question posed on Quora regarding the popularity of podcasts led Forbes to research why podcasts have become so popular over the recent years.

According to Forbes, podcasts have widely gained momentum because of their ability to conveniently fit into our schedules. Whether you have 15 minutes or more than an hour you'll find a podcast in virtually any topic you might be interested in.

Not only are they informative and entertaining, podcasts also allow listeners to delve deeper into new subjects at their own pace. The likelihood of reading a 20k word article is far less than that same article being ingested via audio while commuting to work or even taking a stroll (gotta undo the tech-neck!). Forbes also credits the personal aspect of podcasts, stating that they help create communities by connecting like-minded individuals with common interests.

In fact, one of the first podcasts on our list, The Accounting Podcast, states that roughly 20% of Americans listen to podcasts on a weekly basis and 40 - 50% have listened to a podcast at some point.

The Accounting Podcast
