Top 9 Female Podcasts That Will Inspire You On International Women's Day
Looking for a quick boost of confidence or want the feeling of having your life together? Check out my nine favorite female podcasts, and hopefully, they will inspire you to get up and get going!
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 morning. This is one of my favorite podcasts!
Switching from YouTube to Apple Podcast, the eccentric Grace Helbig uses her trademarked humor to interact with her weekly guest. With her co-host, Jack Ferry, the duo creates a light-hearted atmosphere. If you want a laidback podcast or a quick laugh, put Not Too Deep on.
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.
Featuring youtubers, Remi and Alisha, Pretty Basic is a fun, fast-paced podcast. From talking about boys, the behind-the-scenes of YouTube, or even weight loss—PB reminds me of catching up with an old bestie. If you’re in need of some girl time, treat yo’ self to an episode.
Kelsey and Madeline are two millennials who are kicking ass and taking names! Not only have I learned how scary adulthood is going to be, I know I can get through it with a little ranting and a good friend. Embrace the GRL PWR and tune in to the Bitch Kitty Podcast. *Bonus Points: BK podcast is a Columbus original*
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.
I have learned so much from the Balanced Blonde podcast! As someone that’s not particularly religious, this podcast has helped me get in contact with my spiritual side. I’ve learned so much about astrology, crystals, and self-care. The balanced blonde, Jordan, reminds me to be kind to myself and others. If you’re looking for a quick pick-me-up and good vibes, this is the podcast for you!
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 rest of thesemester. This is one of the best female podcasts!
It feels weird to write this but I grew up watching Marissa on YouTube. From her mukbangs to car rants, Marissa has always inspired me to be my best self. With her #YearofYou initiative, I spent 2018 really working on myself and pushing towards my goal. I’m so happy Marissa has her own podcast now! For anyone that needs a quick pep talk, listen to the choosing YOU episode. I found it helpful and very much needed, especially in this time of retrograde.
