Not feeling good vibes whilst doing your makeup or cleaning your house? Well, podcasts are the best way to relax and clear your mind. Whilst you indulge yourself in your many life commitments you may be shying yourself away from possible dilemmas in your life but finding reassurance from a fellow woman will help you a lot. Even if it’s just a voice from your phone. In this article, you’ll be given a number of women podcasts to listen to when you need that little voice.
#1 Resisting Gilead
Resisting Gilead is a podcast about The Hulu Series, The Handmaid’s Tale. As a fan of the show and someone who is horrified by its fictitious society, Gilead (formerly the United States), the host, Gina Giachetti, interviews a variety of people to discuss not only the show’s characters, stunning production, and amazing performances, but its core themes.
From women’s rights to religion, fertility to family separation, and abuses against women to finding love, and the will to survive, in a hopeless place, the podcast’s episodes will draw attention to the events in Gilead and how they echo what’s happening in the U.S. today. In addition to SoundCloud, Resisting Gilead can be found on iTunes, GooglePlay, and Podcast Addict.
#2 The Wishbeads Podcast
The Wishbeads Podcast consists of funny, honest, amazing conversations with customers, friends, and fans. We talk about their Wishstories – true stories, discoveries, and inspiration to keep going and wishing BIG.
And another fun thing? This podcast is filmed inside my reissue 1961 Shasta Airflyte Trailer and we put the video version of the podcast on Youtube if you’re more of a visual learner! What I hope you get from The Wishbeads Podcast (and how it’s different from other self-help podcasts)
I hope that you see yourself and your wishes in the stories we share. Of course, you’ll hear self-help tips, advice for manifesting your wishes and using the law of attraction. But more than that, I want you to see evidence of what’s possible.
Seeing and hearing other people’s moments of inspiration, can provide the support to keep going. I want you to see the signs, stay positive, and believe that anything is possible.
#3 Yourartsygirl Podcast
This podcast features women, women of color, people of color & underrepresented groups in this art & literary podcast.

This podcast is female hosted, female empowering and it’s breaking down the walls of the patriarchy. Highly recommend it for anyone raised in a cult, or for those who seek spirituality over oppressive and marginalizing religious dogma. Or for anyone who enjoys a good belly laugh.

#8 Doctors+ Alternative Food Network
Alternative Food Network produces informative and credible podcasts about food and health. We have many one-off podcasts covering an array of topics including sports nutrition, cannabis edibles, the plant-based diet, to name a few. Most recently, AFN launched a new series called Doctors+ that interviews conventional medicine practitioners who are also trained in complementary or alternative therapies such as Naturopathy, Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine.
Each episode includes a thought-provoking discussion about food as medicine, sometimes challenging the western medicine status quo but always drawing upon evidence-based knowledge to inform the health consumer.

#21 Curious Love
This 8-episode serial is like getting to be a fly on the wall for every awkward and intimately tender conversation you’ve never had about partnership, love, sex drive, and sexuality. The story is part voyeuristic mystery, part relationship masterclass as it follows a millennial woman through her real-time process of figuring out who and how she loves before her 35th birthday.
She has conversations with everyone from experts to a past unrequited love to her parents, and you’ll find yourself at points laughing, cringing, crying, and most definitely recognizing yourself and your own secret curiosities.

#23 Investing From The Beach
Two guys who achieved time freedom (one retired at 30, the other at 40)talk about what it takes to achieve that goal. They achieved freedom via trading/investing in the stock market.What I love (and inspires me) is that it is a level playing field; nobody knows what race you are; your gender; your age; your education; none of that matters.
#24 Julie Solomon’S Influencer Podcast
She takes the rare perspective of someone who is a business thought leader, social media influencer and a mom, making her podcast unique, interesting and more applicable to many women than the majority of male-run podcast thought leaders today.

#26 Promote Yourself To Ceo | Small Business Strategy For Women Entrepreneurs
Racheal Cooks Uncomplicate your Business is fantastic because there’s no big bold promise of the prefect way to do business. She acknowledges that there’s no one way that fits all. It’s about you and your way to do business. She shows you the real side of business, like is your business lifeproof? It’s about the bigger picture, with very actionable steps, not just revenue. I would recommend her podcast to any solo entrepreneur who’s looking to promote themselves.
#27 Mama Said
If you want a podcast by women, for women, check out Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Jenna Paris’ Mama Said.

From balancing being a mom while traveling and working to being a stay-at-home mom, they’ve got you covered with tips for every situation. This podcast will give you more self-confidence about your performance as a mom, and it will make you feel less alone in your struggles. It covers everything from infertility to disciplining kids, so mothers should definitely check this podcast out.
Ladies – is your biological clock ticking? Is that even a thing? Follow along as actress, comedienne, and writer Molly Hawkey grapples with these issues and more on her quest to find a sperm donor. Molly started the podcast when she was 39, single, and struggling to pay the bills.
While most women wouldn’t start a podcast to find potential sperm donors, Molly is definitely not most women. Her hilarious, informative, and almost too honest approach to the podcast will keep you counting the days until her next episode drops. Highlights from her previous seasons include Episode 2 of Season 2 when Molly somehow winds up topless with three witches.
Yes – topless witches (good thing podcasts are an audio medium). And Episode 4 of Season 1 when Molly and her (also hilarious) parents sing her theme song. Spoiler – her 88 year old father just does the bass riff. Seriously though, you’ll laugh and cry your way through this podcast, and if you don’t believe us – just check out her perfect 5 Star rating on iTunes with over 275 reviews.
