Recently, I have been dipping my toes into the world of podcasts, and that’s something I never thought I would say. I never really thought I had the attention span for podcasts, and I could never find the right ones that I could relate to, or that kept me interested in each episode. But I’ve done some digging and listened to many female-hosted podcasts that I feel truly understand the complexities of being a woman and give some amazing advice while also making me laugh out loud. So here are five female podcasts to listen to while relaxing, working out, or driving around!
The Broski Report with Brittany Broski
If you don’t know who Brittany Broski is, you might be living under a rock. This is probably my favorite podcast I have ever listened to, and Brittany is just absolutely hilarious. But she is also so genuine and intelligent and says all the things that I have going on in my own head to make me feel seen and heard. I have never connected with an “influencer,” though I don’t know if that term is right for her, so much before, and I really hope you guys check her out. She’ll make you laugh, cry, scream, and smile all in one episode and is very much worth your time.
The Comment Section with Drew Aufalo
Drew Aufalo is also a favorite TikToker of mine and is known for calling out misogynistic men online in an amusing and satisfying way. On her podcast, she likes to bring on various guests, who dive into their comment sections and discuss many topics that relate to issues women face all the time, like toxic masculinity, body positivity, femininity, and much more. Drew also has me crying laughing every episode and makes women feel so empowered in themselves, especially in the face of “terrible men.” Definitely check her out if you like more comedy-style podcasts.
Not Your Typical Katelyn Nolan
Moving from comedy-style podcasts, Katelyn Nolan has a great podcast that talks about health and fitness from a different perspective. The fitness community online can be an extremely toxic place, full of misinformation, and can lead to a lot of self-hate, but Katelyn strives to be not your typical fitness influencer and focuses on self-love/growth and becoming the best version of yourself. She gives really good advice that I use constantly in my own life to have a positive mindset and outlook on life and how to get there if you are struggling.
Hot Girl Energy Podcast with Kaylie Stewart
This is another great self-help podcast for women specifically and is full of girl talk and advice to create healthy habits in your own life. Kaylie truly feels like a big sister to me and helps me navigate my 20s, especially when everything seems to be changing. She talks about relationships, loving yourself, and how to be a “hot girl” all year long. Creating healthy habits can be difficult, and knowing how to invest time in yourself has become so much easier after I started listening to her.
Trying Not to Care with Ashley Corbo
Last but not least, Ashley Corbo’s podcast feels like you’re just chatting with one of your friends and is so refreshing to listen to. She helps and give advice on how to be yourself and be confident in your femininity unapologetically. So often, women are told to be so many different things and fit into so many categories that are impossible and really harmful to our mental well-being, and Ashley dives into why it’s OK to be yourself in every aspect and stop caring what other people think you should be.
And there you have it; those are just a few female podcasts to listen to. Have you heard of any of these women before? Let us know!
