We love listening to podcasts. They are portable, convenient, and easy to consume. Did you know that podcasts help us to become better listeners? It seems the current situation is very conducive to producing new Luxembourgish podcasts – quite a few of them have appeared online in recent months. In case you are on the lookout for the next local Tim Ferriss or Joe Rogan, here’s a list of promising sounds from Luxembourg:
Pick One: WMN Talk (coming soon)
Ok we are a bit biased! This podcast is powered by LUX WMN magazine-our sister publication- and Luxembourg’s newest women’s magazine. This podcast will launch in the coming weeks and will be dedicated to all the badass WMN out there. Lifting women up through the stories of others. Season one features interviews with top female entrepreneurs in Luxembourg and delves into the latest news affecting women. This podcast is a continuation of LUX WMN’s effort to build a community to empower and inspire women in Luxembourg and beyond!
Pick Two: LuxUnplugged
This is a Luxembourg Business Podcast.

Pick Three: Luxventures
Luxventures introduces an inspirational podcast about life in Luxembourg through the eyes of people who came here and stayed. New beginnings are sometimes difficult, especially in a new country. Expats have to first overcome so many difficulties to finally feel at home. But thankfully, we can learn from each other’s tips and tricks.

Hanna never forgets to list all the sources, so you can dig deeper into the topics and do your own research.
Pick Five: Shaping Finance
