When podcasts first entered the entertainment space, I wasn’t on board originally. Listening to someone go on and on about politics or the news wasn’t my idea of a rela commute to work. But it wasn’t until I discovered that I could listen to podcasts about topics of interest, like budgeting and building adult friendships, that I finally got on board. And the best part: these podcasts were hosted by women just like me. Learning how other women got their big breaks in their industries was not only inspiring, but helpful in my own career journey.

So, whether you’re looking for a podcast to listen to before going to bed or on your way to work, these podcasts for women, by women address topics that are most relevant to your daily life — from maintaining a work-life balance and keeping the spark in your marriage to starting your own company and handling your finances as a breadmaker and a caretaker.
