Women-Led Podcasts to Listen to
In celebration of International Podcast Day on September 30th, we want to show our appreciation for the podcasts that make us laugh, entertain us, and teach us a thing or two. There are thousands of podcasts to choose from, but the next time you're in need of some audio recreation try listening to these podcasts hosted by powerful women.
The Unladylike podcast has a mission to help women’s voices be heard. Hosts Cristen Conger and Caroline Ervin do this by sharing stories about women who “break the rules,” or in other words, go against society’s expectations. Through witty banter and storytelling, they address gender roles, expectations, feminism, and more.
Hosts Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman are best friends that created this show because they were inspired by long distance friendships. They discuss everything from life to pop culture, and aren’t afraid to get into the nitty gritty. This past summer they featured a “Summer of Friendship” series, where they covered topics that explore the joys and difficulties of friendship.
Lift your spirits and expand your knowledge with the Good For You podcast, hosted by comedian Whitney Cummings. She interviews friends, celebrities, comedians, and experts to hilariously pick their brain. Her recent guests include neuroscientist Andrew Huberman and actress Hilary Duff.
If you’re a true crime fan, this podcast is for you. Best friends and hosts Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark take turns recounting real-world murder stories, with a touch of personal humor. The result is a hilarious and feminist take on murder tales that will have you binge listening.
Sophia Amoruso, the CEO and founder of Girlboss, along with Neha Gandhi, editor-in-chief and COO of Girlboss, share wisdom and life lessons learned from being trailblazing women in the professional world. They talk with other inspiring women, like Jameela Jamil, to share knowledge and vulnerabilities with a dash of humanizing humor.
Enjoy listening to these excellent podcasts! Your ears will thank us later.
