Whether you listen to them while whipping up dinner for one, standing in line at the post office, or while on a power walk to lighten the load of a bad day, podcasts have quickly invaded our homes, conversations, and AirPods in the very best way possible. If you aren’t already submerged in the podcasting movement, perhaps you haven’t found your listening niche just yet. That’s the beauty of podcasts after all; you can literally listen to anything covering any topic at any time. Obsessed with true crime and murder? We don’t judge! And, Crime Junkie has you covered. Dying to learn more about under-the-radar design and architecture? Don’t sleep on 99% Invisible.

“Second Life is hosted by Hillary Kerr, the Co-Founder of Who What Wear, who is so inspirational, warm, and engaging. She chats with women entrepreneurs about the major changes in their lives and careers that brought about their ‘second life.’ I love the real talk as they candidly discuss their struggles, experiences, and advice on building their businesses. It’s very inspiring to see that commitment and following your passion, even if it’s a non-linear path can lead to success.”
The High Low
“Hosts Pandora Skyes and Dolly Alderton chat about pop culture and current events. I love that they find a great balance between fun topics such as celebrity stories and the Fyre Festival, but also tackle more challenging, real topics such as mental health and politics.”
2 Dope Queens
“Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson are such amazing hosts — both smart and hilarious — with really fun, engaging guests. I love that they really empower and provide a platform for so many wonderful women to tell their story. The episode with Michelle Obama is a must listen!”
The Broad Experience
“Host Ashley Milne-Tyte has tough conversations about the woman experience in the workplace. Ashley touches upon topics spanning from the gender pay gap and saying ‘no’ in the workplace to the anxiety of networking. As a woman trying to balance a full-time job, a new business, and an infant baby, I can relate to a lot of the topics she discusses.”
“Absolutely beautiful storytelling by NPR. Its science-backed stories about human behavior suck me in and I spend days afterwards thinking about the topics.”
“There’s a crazy amount of research that goes into each episode and it really shows. Each episode dives deep into the life of super interesting woman. I especially enjoyed the episodes about Marie Curie, Joan of Arc, and Frida Khalo.”
