We’re excited to share our top picks for podcasts by women that you should be listening to. We love that podcasts have become such a powerful source for diverse and strong female voices all over the world, and here are just a few of our favorites.
1. 2 Dope Queens
We wouldn’t be doing our jobs right if we didn’t include 2 Dope Queens on a list of top women-hosted podcasts. Phoebe Robins and Jessica Williams are the BFF hosts who bring on their favorite fellow comedians to join them to chat about various topics like sex, romance, and race. They don’t hold back and they don’t beat around the bush. Long story short, they’re hilarious! Don’t miss out.

2. Call Your Girlfriend
Hosted by two fantastic women, Ann Friedman and Aminatou Sow, Call Your Girlfriend originated from a weekly long-distance call between two besties. They started recording their calls, inviting guests to join in, and the rest is history.
These two women noticed a trend in male-dominated podcasts, and wanted to change that. They also highlight awesome women doing awesome things: actresses, journalists, writers, producers, etc. Listen to a recent clip here:
Radio Cherry Bombe features host Kerry Diamond as she interviews the coolest, most interesting women in the world of food. All the women who are making it happen as restaurant owners, chefs, bakers, food stylists, food writers, or women who just love talking about food, this is the podcast for you.
4. Stuff Mom Never Told You
Podcast hosts Cristen Conger and Caroline Ervin talk about well-researched topics that affect women today and throughout history. Learn about interesting stories in women’s history, activism, and women in the workplace. We love that they relate these topics to modern women and also tie them back to their historical origins.
5. Being Boss
Need a little confidence boost as a boss lady? Hosts Kathleen Shannon and Emily Thompson talk about the universal problems that face women in the workplace, and they bring on expert guests to give advice on how to build a business, manage a team, deal with burnout, and so much more.
This is a great podcast for creative entrepreneurs and business owners who want to know that they’re not alone!
6. Selfie with Kristen Howerton and Sarah James
Self-care is so important in today’s day and age. We love listening to BFFs Kirsten Howerton and Sarah James tackle conversations about food, sleep, health, and friends. They take a lighthearted and vulnerable look at all the questions we ask ourselves, or maybe at the questions that we should be asking ourselves.
