Other than books, podcasts are the single most important source I’ve had for learning new ideas over the past 5 years, and it’s mostly down to listening to podcasts that I started this YouTube channel and ended up being pretty ‘successful’.

If you’d like to talk, I’d love to hear from you. Tweeting @AliAbdaal directly will be the quickest way to get a response, but if your question is very long, feel free to email me at hi@aliabdaal.com. I try my best to reply to things but there sadly aren’t enough hours in the day to respond to everyone 😭


  1. starting early is the best way of getting ahead tl built wealth, Investment remains the priority, the stoclk market has plenty opportunities to earn a decent payout, with the right skills and proper understanding of how the market works.

  2. Hi Ali. I stumbled on your YouTube channel four days ago and I'm hooked. Thanks for all the lessons. I've signed up for Curiosity Stream. Hopefully I'll get access to Deep Dive on Nebula. Keep up the great work.

  3. I am stunned Ali doesn't know about Lex Fridman Podcast. If I am given only one podcast to listen this would be my choice. Raw truth honest deep conversation with legends of the world. Most of the podcast these day are buisness startup philosophy shit not worth the time.

  4. Ascolta. Se sei tu il ragazzino coi calzoncini bianchi e pistola ad acqua di cui ti mando video, fatti la tua Vita vai in una direzione e vedrai che sara' Dio a prendere contatto con te. Lo fa con ciascuno dei suoi figli uno per uno a cuascuno il suo. Me lasciami continuare la mia guerra personale grazie.

  5. How did find time to listen to those many .Could you also make a video on how to narrow down the podcast for any particular person as lot of common people appear in various podcasts,so what should be our approach.
    Thank you
