Tired of listening to the radio or the same old Spotify playlist? Worry not, I’ve got some other alternatives for you. Podcasts are the new in-thing right now, so, if you haven’t tried already, I suggest you do it right now! Looking for a quick boost of confidence or want the feeling of having your life together? Check out my five favorite female podcasts, and hopefully, they will inspire you to get up and get going!
The Goal Digger Podcast with Jenna Kutcher
Jenna Kutcher is a self-made millionaire who created her dream job from posting on social media (can I say #goals?). I have been listening to Jenna’s podcast for weeks now and I honestly can’t get enough. Jenna is able to condense one semester-long class on social media in a powerful, light-hearted session. Posting every Monday and Wednesday, the half hour podcasts are perfect for your daily walks through the Oval. This is one of the best female podcasts!
Not Too Deep with Grace Helbig
Switching from YouTube to Apple Podcast, the eccentric Grace Helbig uses her trademarked humor to interact with her weekly guest. If I want a laidback podcast or a quick laugh, I love to put Not Too Deep on.
The Struggle Bus
Co-hosts, Katharine Heller and Sally Tamarkin, spend their weekly hour focusing on mental health and self-care. During this hour, you’ll laugh, cry and feel as if you’ve known this dynamic duo for years. I always feel relaxed and ready to tackle a hectic day after tuning in. This is one of the best female podcasts!
Stuff Mom Never Told You
If you want to #staywoke, this is podcast for you! Coming from the popular site, HowStuffWorks, every episode dives into everyday challenges for women. All the ideas and feelings I have about current events are neatly vocalized by co-hosts, Bridget Todd and Anney Reese. This is the modern day version of the nightly news, but with a feminist twist. This is one of the best female podcasts!
Therapy for Black Girls
Join Dr. Joy Harden every Tuesday to explore trends in mental health and personal development. As a licensed Psychologist, Dr. Joy creates a safe space to discuss a variety of topics from sexuality to colorism in the today’s society. I highly recommend Session 37, “10 Ways to Optimize Your Mental Health,” to mentally prepare for the upcoming semester. This is one of the best female podcasts!
