5 Podcasts Created by Women You Need to be Listening to

1.  My Favorite Murder


As a true crime fan, My Favorite Murder is one of, if not my favorite, podcast of all time. The true crime comedy podcast is hosted by the hilarious duo Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark. The two women teamed up in 2016 to create a light-hearted, yet captivating show where they tell stories about their favorite murders. They also invite fans to send in stories about their hometown murders, so there is never a shortage of chilling topics. The witty banter mixed with true crime stories makes for a more entertaining podcast. These women never fail to make you both laugh and shudder from terror in each episode.


2. The Michelle Obama Podcast


Former First Lady Michelle Obama just recently started her hit-podcast where she discusses all things relationships, wellness and life. She had her husband Barack Obama on her very first episode, and the two dove deep into today’s current issues. Michelle offers her unique view on the world as the former president’s wife but also makes the podcast her own. She invites many special people in her life, such as her brother and best friends to talk about anything and everything. Fingers crossed she decides to do another season.


3. Office Ladies


This is another fun, light-hearted podcast for serious fans of The Office. Co-stars Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey, AKA Pam and Angela, teamed up to give fans an in-depth look into each episode of The Office. While Office Ladies is still rather new, it continuously sits on top of the charts each week. The two women give listeners a behind-the-scenes look at the making of specific episodes, and fans are eating it up.


4. Call Your Girlfriend


If you want a mix of pop-culture and politics, then Call Your Girlfriend is a good place to start. Best friends Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman began their podcast in 2014 as a way to discuss topics surrounding women. Aminatou lives in Brooklyn and Friedman lives in Los Angeles, so they record their podcast by calling each other weekly. The two often highlight other women and discuss topics surrounding feminism, women’s wellness, friendship, etc. You name it, they talk about it. They have honest, real conversations about life and are not afraid to speak their minds when it comes to important issues. The women-led podcast is also produced by Gina Delvac.


5. Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations


When I think of super inspiring women, Oprah is one of the first people to pop into my head, and I think a lot of people would agree. In her podcast, Oprah interviews all different types of people from all different walks of life and invites listeners to “awaken, discover and connect to the deeper meaning of the world around you.” It’s basically like a self-help book but in podcast form. So, if you’re in need of a pick-me-up, this is the podcast for you.
