Listening to podcasts can offer a number of benefits. First, podcasts allow you to learn about a wide range of topics from experts in their fields, such as science, history, and current events. This can help you stay informed and broaden your knowledge base. Second, podcasts can be a great source of entertainment, providing an enjoyable and immersive listening experience. They can also be a convenient way to pass the time, whether you're driving to the next thrift store, thrifting, or cleaning out your reseller "death pile". Also, podcasts can be a useful tool for improving the way you learn tips and tricks from other resellers and the products or brands on the VeRo list.
After conducting surveys with multiple reseller groups and analyzing their responses, I was able to gather some useful insights. It's important to note that this blog post is not sponsored by any of the reselling podcast(s) mentioned - it is purely based on the feedback I received from resellers who responded to my surveys. After crunching the numbers, here is the list of podcast shows that are popular in the reselling world:
You can find this comedic reseller podcast on Apple. Episodes range typically about an hour to an hour and a half and offer in-depth insights interview style.
Lacey Urquhart and Lindsey Tessada interview resellers from all over the country to learn the ins and outs of the industry. You'll get honesty, insight, and laughter from each new guest. Informative and entertaining, this podcast is a great choice if you have some time on your hands!
Pure Hustle Podcast
You can find their podcasts on Apple, Spotify, and Youtube. Their show is about an hour long, and they have "Monday mini-episodes," which are 5-20 minutes long that are exclusive on their Youtube channel. There are about 327 episodes, and it is aired every Wednesday.
Mike and Orlando, the hosts of Pure Hustle Podcast, are eBay and Amazon resellers based in California. They started the podcast show back in 2018 as a platform to talk openly about the reselling lifestyle and struggles. The two entrepreneurs have been reselling for a decade on eBay and wanted to share their knowledge with the public. When it comes down to knowledge on reselling, Mike and Orlando are determined to show why they are the leading experts on the topics:
The highs and lows as a full time and part time reseller
Reselling news: primarily eBay-related content
Sharing BOLOs (be on the lookout) and
Listeners have the opportunity to share their Hustle of The Week.
As a listener of PHP for a while now, it's been great watching Mike and Orlando develop their reselling knowledge and expertise over time. Both have different approaches to reselling but they remain totally transparent, offering honest advice. It's not always easy when resellers push reselling platforms like Whatnot as the go-to place to find good deals, but that's why Mike and Orlando are so helpful in providing balanced, no-nonsense perspectives. For instance, they know the risks associated with Whatnot too - while it can look great on paper to buy high-margin items from Whatnot at an unbeatable price, if that product is too difficult to resell elsewhere then you're left with nowhere else for them to go other than being “inventory dumped”. It's these kinds of honest conversations which make me keep coming back to the PHP podcast!
Pure Hustle Podcast is the perfect resource if you're a reseller just starting out and looking for a no-nonsense podcast to help you dive into reselling. Their straightforward info, casual language, and reliable content each week make their show accessible to everyone. Plus, their tips and hints are useful when reselling, so you'll be sure to learn something from the podcast. And if that wasn't enough, they also have an active Discord community full of other resellers and true fans of the show who are always happy to lend a helping hand - so if you're ever stuck on reselling questions, you'll definitely find someone in that Discord willing to answer your queries! So if reselling is something you're interested in learning more about, The Pure Hustle Podcast should be at the top of your list.

The Resellers Podcast
The Resellers Podcast is a paid private podcast hosted by Chris Lin (also known as Daily Refinement) and TechnSports. This podcast is also known as the Reseller Nirvana Podcast. You can only find the latest podcast content on their Patreon page by selecting one of their 3 tiered memberships or simply watching Chris' Youtube videos can help you gain valuable information about reselling and sourcing.
Chris and TechnSport started a reseller mastermind group called, Reseller Nirvana Podcast, at the beginning of 2020. The mastermind group includes a private Facebook group, weekly or bi-weekly Zoom calls with different coaches, and coaching to support resellers in mastering their skills. Each coach specializes in different niches in reselling like:
Media (CDs, books, video games)
Clothing (vintage or modern)
During my membership with the group, the podcast openly talks about:
mindset of being a full time reseller
technical tips and tricks
in-depth reselling strategies
scaling your reselling business with hiring
I can't recommend The Resellers Podcast enough for resellers who are looking for information and a sense of accountability. If you've been following Chris, also known as Daily Refinement's Youtube channel then you are well aware of the remarkable wisdom his videos offer. I'm proof that their reselling advice works — I've taken it all to heart and made significant progress on my reselling journey as a result. The community of resellers in addition to the step-by-step guide that is included with membership is definitely worth considering if you want to take your reselling skills to the next level. You'll never regret becoming a member!
The Nurse Flipper
Okay, this one is a bit different because the Reselling Live Chat Hangout is not necessarily a podcast (ie. you can listen to it on Apple, Spotify etc.) but this is more of a Youtube LIVE reseller chat and you can watch (or listen) to the reruns.
In 2020, Kat from Youtube's Nurse Flipper channel decided to add an exciting new twist on reselling by starting a live-streaming show called the Reselling Live Chat Hangout. Every Tuesday night Kat and her co-host would invite two resellers onto the show for an interview, giving viewers a unique peek into their reselling journeys and advice. During the live stream, viewers could chat with each other and the resellers, making this interactive event both enjoyable and informative. With a blend of practical reselling tips and insights provided by each guest, plus a lively chat full of shared success stories, this hangout has become one of the ultimate hotspots for everyone interested in learning or sharing reselling knowledge!
Watching a few reruns of the Reselling Live Chat Hangout gave me a better understanding of how captivating the show can be - especially when you catch it live. One of the major draws of this "podcast" type show is having the opportunity to watch it live and pose questions directly to featured guests. I find listening to their responses and hearing stories from different resellers incredibly informative and entertaining, as they often provide insights that I would have otherwise never known. Of course, tuning in also allows me to connect with other resellers which is an added bonus.
eBay The Right Way
You can find this podcast show on Apple, Spotify and Youtube. The show is about an hour long, with 92 episodes and is aired randomly (no schedule). Only available on Suzanne's Youtube channel, she highlights sellers' successes and monthly "What Sold" episodes.
Suzanne Wells is a reselling mogul and an eBay influencer who has been making waves in the e-commerce world. She started reselling on eBay back in 2003 and since then, has grown her reselling business tremendously, earning her recognition amongst both Money Magazine and Martha Stewart. Now she's leveraging her knowledge to help other resellers find success by creating a Youtube channel & podcast where she interviews resellers from all corners of the nation!
Before I recently tuned into eBay The Right Way podcast, I had never heard of it, but I am glad I came across this show. Despite its catchy name, it is not all about eBay reselling – host Suzanne takes a different approach and interviews resellers from various platforms. Through their stories, the podcast captures resellers’ experiences and knowledge of reselling, making for interesting (and entertaining!) listening. This shows that reselling can be an enriching journey that involves exploration and learning – If you're searching for a captivating and diverse collection of stories, then this podcast is a perfect choice!
