7 Feel-Good, Female Boss Podcasts You'll Love To Listen To
Binge-watching a TV show is great, but sometimes you want to avert your eyes away from a screen. Cue podcasts: the perfect way to entertain yourself while doing pretty much anything, be it going for a stroll, doing your hair or makeup, folding laundry, getting crafty, or making dinner. In an effort to lighten the mood a bit, we recommend turning on one of these seven female-run, feel-good podcasts.
This is the go-to podcast for makeup and skincare junkies. It’s hosted by two women who’ve been in the biz for years: Jessica Matlin, current beauty director at Harper’s Bazaar, and Jenn Goldstein, former beauty director at Marie Claire (she recently decided to pursue the successful podcast full-time). Every week, the duo recaps big beauty headlines, talks trends, and interviews a notable industry guest
Wine & Crime
How can a crime podcast possibly be uplifting, you ask? The trio at Wine & Crime will show you how. Every week, these three childhood friends “chug wine, chat true crime, and unleash their worst Minnesota accents!” Each episode starts off with an appropo wine pairing according to the week’s theme, and then each takes a turn deep-diving into a crime story.
Cake for Breakfast
This brand-new podcast is hosted by Nicole Stillings, who you may know better as DJ Rosé, and Jessica Devine, a Wall Street commentator. Cake for Breakfast delivers a “mixed batter” of news stories to your phone, but in a way that’s the opposite of stuffy. Think 20-minute newsy pick-me-up versus stress-inducing headlines.
Forever 35 started off as a beauty podcast, but over the years it’s morphed into something that goes far beyond product-talk. Hosts Doree Shafrir and Kate Spencer, self-proclaimed “wellness addicts,” focus primarily on how to practice self-care in each episode.
Promote Yourself to CEO
Business-minded babes interested in elevating their career will gain loads of wisdom from host Racheal Cook. This award-winning business strategist and six-figure entrepreneur tackles topics like how to create a 12-month profit plan, pivoting your business in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, and keeping focus.
The Well/Behaved podcast mantra is “deliver wellness remixed.” It takes the all-too-familiar word “balance” – which hosts Stephanie Biegel and Lauren Abney Eisenstein say is an “overrated” term – and turns it on its head. The goal is to help listeners access wellness in a way that makes sense to them, and they do so through inspiring educational guests and real talk.
Host Jackie Johnson – a comedian and self-proclaimed “beauty passionista” – is a breath of fresh air. You can feel her energy the second the intro music (sung by her!) starts playing. Natch Beaut focuses on beauty and wellness but, as the name implies, takes a natural/organic approach to the topic. Each episode features an interview with a notable name ranging from makeup artists to indie brand founders to celebrities.
