The Best Digital Nomad Podcasts in 2024

It’s easy to see why podcasts for digital nomads are popular. While it might appear to have limited niche audience potential, there are several reasons why podcasts about location-independent entrepreneurs are popular. For one, audio is a format that travelers can consume easily. A podcast weighs nothing so listeners don’t have to worry about space in their minimalist backpack.

Shows on the topic of digital nomadism are great for practical advice and inspiration. Many nomads use them as an educational tool. Here’s my list of shows that will help you at any stage of your digital nomad journey. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a budding beginner nomad, the advice in these podcast episodes is pure gold.

Download these shows on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and all good networks to find out.

That Remote Life

This is one of the newest digital nomad podcasts on the list but I’ve put it first because it’s definitely a rising star. If you’re considering running or building a business while travelling, That Remote Life is the show for you. Host Mitko Karshovski has managed to build a professional, twice-a-week show that never fails to inform and entertain. Mitko interviews everyone from newbie location independent entrepreneurs to experienced nomads and successful business owners.

Topics covered in the weekly interviews with digital nomads include remote working, location independent business, visas & business incorporation overseas, gear for nomads, destination guides, and business lifestyle design.

The host is a natural interviewer and is clearly passionate about his digital nomad journey. I expect this show to become one of the biggest in the digital nomad lifestyle niche. Stay tuned!

Location Indie Podcast

The Location Indie show is one of the longest-running and most popular shows for the digital nomad community. Your hosts Travis Sherry and Jason Moore (from Zero To Travel) run through the typical topics of interest to nomads: work-life balance, online business, health on the road, freedom to roam, the best countries in the world to live, and more.

These days, the Location Indie show is focused more on location independent business and tips on how to become location independent, rather than travel stories.

For the wanderluster with business chops.

Become Nomad with Eli David

Best described as an introspective and thoughtful podcast about the modern nomadic lifestyle, the Become Nomad podcast by Eli (a long-term traveller and location independent entrepreneur) is always high on my list of listening priorities.

Eli publishes episodes at random intervals but they’re well thought out, full of insights into the digital nomad lifestyle, and always get me thinking. It’s the sign of a good piece of content when you continue to ponder the questions raised long after you’ve consumed them. The Become Nomad website also hosts a great digital nomad blog that goes into depth on the pros and cons of the digital nomad lifestyle, remote work, relationships on the road, and more.

Digital Nomad Stories

An interview series with freelancers, solopreneurs, travelers, digital nomads, and remote business owners. With this show, host Anne Claessen discovers how people from all over the world make a living online. Guest share what they are doing to be successful while traveling the world. 

A collection of inspirational stories, life lessons and actionable tips from fellow digital nomads. Claessen narrates the tales of her life as a digital nomad, her work as a podcast strategist, and the inspirational people she meets along the way.

Zero To Travel

Zero To Travel is a popular show for those interested in travel and a nomadic lifestyle. The podcast has been delivering great episodes since 2013. Topics covered are broad but always of interest to travelers. The host, Jason Moore, is a nomad, so many of the episodes focus on the topic of location independence and budget travel.

Get tips on traveling with kids, budget travel, touring in camper vans, holistic nomading, finding cheap flights, family travel, long-term travel, finding the cheapest places, and language learning. 

The Tropical MBA

Not strictly a travel podcast but one created by travellers and location indie folks. Dan and Ian, the show hosts, started one of the first “digital nomad” podcasts back in 2009 with a show about building internet businesses while living in a (tropical) overseas location. The Tropical MBA is a weekly show which looks at working and living overseas, online business, digital nomad life, and lifestyle design with a philosophical eye. 

The guys started their show to document building their own lifestyle business which they eventually sold. 

Tropical MBA has a loyal following with an impressive number of downloads. Dan, in particular, has excelled as host of the show and these days, the production quality is pretty slick. The guys have talked to some big names in the online space and travel world. Guests include David Heinemeier Hansson, Seth Godin, and Noah Kagan.

The Maverick Show with Matt Bowles

Host Matt Bowles seems to have many diverse interests and this comes across in his passion for topics like coffee, travel, fitness, remote work, business, music, dance, and languages.
Many digital nomads count real estate as one of their primary sources of “passive income” so this show should also appeal to people interested in getting into property investing.
It’s entertaining and informative and the perfect inspirational podcast for the aspiring and actual digital nomad.

Nomadtopia Radio

Host Amy Scott has built a life around her passions of travel and entrepreneurship. Topics covered are quite broad so there’s something for everyone in the podcast archive.

If you’re a freelancer, living and working overseas, or thinking about starting a business that lets you travel, check out some of the fascinating stories on Nomadtopia. New episodes appear every month or so.

About Abroad

A podcast exploring the world one expat/nomad/traveler at a time. Guests share their stories of working abroad, making money while traveling, integrating globally, and being globally informed. Inspiring stories of what it’s like to live full-time abroad. Host of About Abroad, Chase Warrington delves into the challenges and fun moments of living overseas.

Nomad Capitalist

Andrew Henderson’s Nomad Capitalist show, based on the popular blog with the same name, is packed with information on expat taxes, the best destinations for successful digital nomads, how to invest and money, where to bank, and the countries with the best tax regimes for location independent entrepreneurs.

While many of the topics are suited to six-figure entrepreneurs (Andrew’s core market), there is a lot of value in almost every episode for beginner nomads and established entrepreneurs who want to break free from the constraints of one country’s tax system. Andrew has used his years of experience going “where they treat you best” to build a team of experts on the complicated topics of taxes, residency, and investments.

Learn from an entrepreneur who likes to travel the world on his own terms, legally benefiting from tax incentives and currency arbitrage.

The New Nomad

The freedom to choose where to work and where to play. Cross-border harmony. Global passport, with your foot on the gas pedal. That is exactly what The New Nomad is all about. The New Nomad podcast takes you on a journey through the location-independent lifestyle as seen through the lives of nomads. The podcast is geared towards any remote worker, digital creative, freelancer, or entrepreneur who wants to become location independent.

Every week, show hosts Allen Koski and Andrew Jernigan from Insured Nomads interview leaders in the remote work movement.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve been asked a few questions about this list so I’m adding my answers here just in case you’re also curious.

What about Chris the Freelancer?

While Chris’s podcast and YouTube channel are excellent, he’s currently not producing digital nomad material (unlike the others in this list) so I haven’t included him. Hopefully he gets back to producing podcasts soon.

No Tim Ferriss?

Tim Ferriss once managed his business while travelling full time. His shows sometimes touch on digital nomad topics but he’s pretty far removed from the lifestyle these days.

Where’s the Nomad Together podcast?

There hasn’t been an episode in 4 years so it’s not going on the list. Other bloggers still include this show in their “best of” lists but they aren’t adding value by recommending a defunct show.
