The Masters of Scale podcast is hosted by Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn, investor, and member of the Paypal Mafia.

You’ll hear about the ups and downs of the founders, their learnings, and the bold bets that propelled them to the top of their industries.

Masters of Scale is an immersive auditory experience. The interviews incorporate sound effects, original music, cameos, and narration from Reid himself. Think of them as audio documentaries rather than mere interviews.

“Most humans learn best through human stories. The more visual and sensory we make the ideas, the more they’ll stick.”

One caveat is the audio quality. Certain episodes can be difficult to listen to, especially in noisy environments.

  • Approx. episode length: 30 minutes

Forbes, the Huffington Post, and Entrepreneur magazine all have recognized Rocketship FM as one of the best business podcasts out there. It has been around since 2016 and boasts over 500 episodes.

Though recorded with tech entrepreneurs in mind, it is a great resource for product managers as well.

The podcast is educational and actionable. The hosts have a remarkable chemistry with their guests, which always makes for fun conversations.

On the downside, the episodes tend to be heavy on advertisements which can hinder the listening experience. We wish they’d offer a paid, ad-free version of the podcast.
