podcasts for young women

Admit it. Ever since you last heard Sarah Koenig chatting with Adnan on Serial, you've been hungry for more great podcasts (and if you didn't listen to Serial, welcome to your new addiction.) This is why our team gathered together to tell you what we love subscribing to on iTunes and why we love it.  

Raise Your Hand. Say Yes.

We loved Tiffany Han’s podcast so much we asked her to be a guest on our podcast! This creative funny lady has great conversations about life and business with guests you’ll find yourself following after you listen. Raise your hand, say yes, and check out this podcast.

The Tim Ferriss Show

Tim Ferriss is the ultimate life hacker. Each episode you will listen to him “deconstruct world-class performers from eclectic areas to extract the tactics and tricks you can use.” His guests include heavy hitters such as Tony Robbins and Arnold Schwarzenegger with great tips you won’t hear anywhere else.

The Lively Show

Jess Lively has been a team favorite for quite some time as she is “helping people transform their approach to life to experience joy, peace, presence, and fulfillment through Values-based intentions.” She has a wide variety of guest covering topics we love hearing more about, so tune in and start living life with a little more intention.

His + Hers Podcast

It's the perfect combination of sports talk, relationship talk and culture talk that a girl who just got into sports can get with.

Here’s The Thing With Alec Baldwin

If there was ever anyone who had a voice for podcasting, it would be Alec Baldwin. His voice is not only a soothing way to spend a long car ride, but he skips the mundane questions with his high-profile guests and get to the interesting anecdotes quickly, which makes you feel like you're eavesdropping at an Oscar party. Fun, right?

Another Round

Hosted by BuzzFeed's Tracy Clayton and Heben Nigatu, listening to it will make you feel like you're sitting at brunch with your homegirls talking all things feminism, corny jokes, race and how "cats are the Rihanna of the animal kingdom."

You Made It Weird

Comedian Pete Holmes interviews other comedians not just about how they got into the business but also about their personal journey and their spirituality. It's always great for a laugh and some thought provoking insights about breaking into a difficult career.

The Read

Should you ever need a laugh, mixed in with a healthy does of shade and love for Beyonce, The Read is the podcast for you.

Elise Gets Crafty

If you want some great information on small businesses and thoughts on goal-setting, motivation and creativity Elise Blaha Cripe is your girl. As self proclaimed list maker and goal setter,  she will appeal to the Type A in you. Oh, and she make the Get To Work Book. It’s rad.

Mavenly + Co. Podcast

What would a staff picks list be without a shameless plug? Nothing. That’s what. We love chatting with real women about building a life by your own design and finding work you love. Give it a listen.
