Representation is important for so.many.reasons. We all deserve to see (and hear) people in media that look, sound, and think like us. That’s why we LOVE podcasts. We’re sure you’ve noticed, but there are about a million podcasts out there. 3 million to be exact. People everywhere are grabbing the mic, interviewing guests, and telling their stories.
In today’s post, we’re highlighting seven feminist podcasts we love. Some discuss gender equality and the steps we can take to improve… and some talk pop culture and personal life… so there’s a little something for everyone. The common denominator? They’re all hosted by kick-ass women we know you’ll love listening to.
7 Feminist Podcasts You Need To Listen To
Open Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or whichever app you use to listen to podcasts, and get ready to download some new episodes!
Girls Gotta Eat is a comedy podcast hosted by Rayna Greenberg & Ashley Hesseltine. In their words, their show is about “dating, relationships, self-care, female friendships, and never settling for bad sex.” Now that’s a podcast we can get behind! In addition to being hilarious, relatable, and fun to listen to, the girls also bring on therapists, authors, and comedians to tackle various topics.
Archetypes, hosted by Meghan Markle, explores the impact that archetypes and labels have on women (and how they often hold women back). Here at Revelle, we’re always talking about the negative impacts that labels (specifically body labels) have on mental health… So we love any podcast that’s working to break them down! Meghan talks to special guests including Mindy Kaling, Serena Williams, Jenny Slate, and Constance Wu about their stories and the labels they’ve experienced in their own lives.
Hosted by finance influencer, Tori Dunlap, the Financial Feminist podcast breaks down one finance topic in every new episode. Her goal is to use the podcast to explain financial topics from a female perspective and help women become financially independent (we love!). She discusses topics like emotional spending, how to invest, negotiating workplace benefits, and managing a side hustle.
The Well-Read Black Girl podcast is hosted by Glory Edim, a writer and entrepreneur. Her book-club style podcast celebrates the literary work of black women and other women of color (many of whom she talks to on the podcast!). She interviews Gabrielle Union, Viola Davis, and Elizabeth Acevedo, among others. If you’re an avid reader, definitely give it a listen!
In We Are Supported By… Monica Padman and Kristen Bell speak to influential women like Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, and Gloria Steinem about how they got to where they are (and how their legacies have impacted other women). Although this podcast uses an interview format, it feels like you’re listening to old friends catch up and reminisce. We can’t recommend it enough! P.S. This podcast is under the ‘Armchair Expert’ umbrella, so search for it in the Armchair Expert podcast feed.
If you love the Bachelor, Grey’s Anatomy, or fun girl talk, this People’s Choice Award winning pod is for you! Becca Tilley (former Bachelor contestant and social media influencer) and Tanya Rad (author and co-host of Ryan Seacrest’s morning radio show) are real-life best friends that catch up on the pod twice a week. They talk about their everyday life, give Grey’s Anatomy deep dives, and offer advice on how to be an independent, modern woman. This podcast bubbles with positivity and we’re here for it!
The Guilty Feminist is an award-winning, weekly podcast hosted by comedian Deborah Frances-White. Deborah covers all kinds of women’s issues and topics (from cancel culture to polyamory) and isn’t afraid to share confessions, insecurities, and allll the ways she’s worried she won’t live up to her ideals. She started her show after attending a women’s march, where she went into a store to use the bathroom and then got distracted by skincare (and ended up missing the whole march!). She knows feminism, and being a woman in general, is complicated and she doesn’t shy away from it!
