Female-Led Podcasts I Can’t Stop Listening To
I am way behind on the podcasts trend. For awhile, I didn’t understand why we were reverting back to radio-style listening without video or pictures. For me, I am a visual person so watching videos is more entertaining and I learn better that way. So I kept saying “no” when podcasts were calling my name. But they kept calling! And hubby kept encouraging me to listen to one so we could learn how to retire early and be financially independent.
So I gave in.
The first podcast I ever listened to was so insightful! It was a BiggerPockets podcast which is a group that lives by the concept of becoming financially independent: get out of debt, make passive income, invest, retire early, and have more financial freedom! I absolutely loved it!
After listening to that podcast, I felt so excited! Why haven’t I listened to podcasts until now? I guess I thought it was old school. When in fact, it is pretty convenient. Why not hit play on an educational podcast instead of hitting play on music every once in awhile? Though I am a huge music lover, I am equally all about that self growth life. Listening to a podcast that will change my life is way more beneficial than turning on the local radio during my drive to work (bye bye ads).
So I fell in love with podcasts.
I have since added more and more podcasts to my playlist. Though I don’t have a ton of time to listen to them, it’s nice to listen to them occasionally. I like to listen to them during my commute, while flying/traveling, while working out, or even on my lunch breaks.
Whether you’re a podcast lover already or not, I have searched around and found some of the top podcasts led by females that I want to share with you! They cover topics like self growth, health & fitness, relationships, happiness, business, & more! Let’s spend more time on ourselves ladies. We deserve to be happy, healthy, and fearless females.
The Ten Female-led Podcasts I Can’t Stop Listening To
#1 Girl Boss by Sophia Amoruso, the creator of Nasty Gal.
Ever since watching the TV series Girl Boss starring one of my favorite new actresses Britt Robertson, I fell in love with the strength and spontaneity of her character. So why not listen to the Girlboss herself in real life! This podcast focuses on what it’s like to be a female in the workplace. Feel empowered and shine girl!
I loved her July 18, 2018 episode with Brooklyn Decker. They discussed her new app “Finery” which I find fascinating because it’s like a real-life Clueless closet! Both Brooklyn and Sophia are all about females showing their power in a male-dominant business. We all have ideas- bring them to life.

#2 She’s Building Her Empire with Stacy Tuschl
This podcast covers all things about female entrepreneurship. Stacy is a best-selling author and business owner who loves talking about branding, mindset, productivity, and business-building strategies.
I loved Episode #267 called How to Kill it on Instagram with Britt Seva. They talk about adding value to other people's’ lives. Ask your followers what they want to see and read about and use that to guide what you post.

#3 Off the Vine with Kaitlyn Bristowe
One of my favorite Bachelorette alums who is not only smart and beautiful but also really freaking hilarious! She lives in Nashville now so she often brings on Nashville country artists to the podcast while enjoying her grape therapy (aka wine)!
I loved the April 5th 2018 episode called So Many Happy Endings with RaeLynn. Kaitlyn is hilarious and you can just tell they’re having a blast. It’s light hearted, funny, and entertaining! Sometimes I want to listen to something less serious that’s more like girl talk and this is exactly that. Plus, I love RaeLynn’s music ever since I watched her on the Voice.

#4 Side Hustle Pro with Nicaila Matthews Okome
As a queen of side hustles (aka multiple side jobs) I love listening to Nicaila share more about women entrepreneurship, especially for “bold black women” as she says.
I loved the May 3 2018 episode called “Find Your Niche, Create a Sales Funnel, and Monetize” with Maya Elious. They talked about how it’s not about the number of products you offer, but the quality of the products you offer. Sometimes you’ve got to scale back.

#5 The Goal Digger with Jenna Kutcher
A podcast about having big dreams and goals. Jenna is a photographer, artist, and dreamer who loves to share ideas on how to achieve your dreams. These dreams could include building a successful business from branding to marketing and more!
I loved episode #168 about How to Gain Big Influence in 5 Easy Steps with Emily Sexton. They talk about the importance of just being real with your followers.

#6 The Influencer with Julie Solomon
Julie talks branding and marketing strategies for online influencers. Online marketing is ever changing so she keeps listeners up-to-date on the trends.
I loved episode 058 called How to Turn Your Side Hustle to a Full Time Gig with Amanda Boleyn. They say just take a leap. We can’t make people do anything but we can create an environment that influences them positively. When they’re ready, they’ll ask for help.

A popular health & fitness entrepreneur, Lori is taking over the industry. In her podcasts she shares a wide variety of topics all about self love: from happiness, confidence, fitness, life coaching, & more!

#8 Food Psych with Christy Harrison
Christy talks about being at peace with food and eating intuitively. She is all about health at every size. She covers topics like nutrition, body image, weight stigma, fat acceptance, eating behaviors, and more!
I loved episode #152 called How to Make Peace with Photos of Yourself with Lindley Ashline. Lindley is a photographer so they discuss things like just being real. We all have cellulite, fat rolls, and pimples we’d prefer be photoshopped out. But instead, if you remind yourself everyone has them you can embrace your imperfections and be raw.
