This list for women hosted podcasts was highly motivated by my baby sister.
A little over a month ago my baby sister challenged me. “How comes you are always obsessed with men?” “Which female entrepreneurs are obsessed with?” She asked. Honestly speaking, I couldn’t think of anyone. I get she was fed up with I constantly raving about Gary Vaynerchuk and Neil Patel podcasts.
Take into consideration that Gary Vaynerchuk every once in a while has a guest to his podcast. And for the life of me, I cannot remember him ever having a female guest to the podcast (nothing wrong with that)
I took it upon myself to search, find and listen to at least 50 women hosted podcasts within one month’s time.
My first point of search was by asking a highly dense female Facebook group for women hosted podcasts they know of.
Definitely, the founder of the group stood up first in line.
My biggest challenge in this search, I do not own an iPhone. And most of these podcasters have their shows on iTunes. Android fans, please share below what podcasting platforms do you use? Apart from stitcher that is.
Also, thank you to the podcasters who have their shows on their personal sites as well (or dedicated sites)
Whenever possible, I will embed some of my best episodes from these women podcasters.
Women Hosted Podcasts for Entrepreneurs
1. The Persuasion Show by Bushra Azhar
Bushra Azhar is the lady helping tiny businesses make big bucks using psychology of persuasion. I have followed Bushra’s online journey since 2015 or so I think.
Expect to learn actionable persuasion tactics that will take your site to the next level. This is through task oriented shows (yes! there are assignments on her shows), book reviews and quick 2 minute jam packed shows.
2. Marketing Made Easy by Amy Porterfield
On the marketing made easy podcast, Amy shares behind the scenes results to some of her most epic online launches. This is also backed with interviews with industry experts such as Jill Stanton (yes, we will talk about her discontinued show in just a few) and Russell Brunson. Just to name a few.
This is another actionable podcast you should add to your listening list. BONUS: Look out for exclusive discounts meant just for her audience.
Expect to learn more about online marketing. This includes but not limits to:
- List building tactics
- Social media news (expect more of Facebook than any other social media platform)
- Course creation and launching of your courses
3. Screw the Nine to Five Podcast by Jill and Josh Stanton
I tend to think the “discontinued” Screw the Nine to Five podcast has simply being repackaged over the years.
This is a podcast that has been hosted by a couple. So it is a co-ed show.
The show started on YouTube, then became a podcast on their website and later went back to YouTube and Facebook. If you like their Facebook page, you can get Facebook notification when they go live.
Like in this episode where Jill goes live with Amanda Bond the Facebook ad strategist (hmmm… Does Amanda Bond have her own podcast? Keep reading!)
Just as Marketing made easy, the screw nine to five podcast is a show about online marketing. What I simply love about it… jill encourages you to embrace the ugly. A concept that I keep repeating over and over again. And many successful online entrepreneurs reiterate on the same.
5. Business Addicts the Podcast
#BusinessAddicts the Podcast is a show by Loren Bartley and Fiona Redding. What I loved about this podcast is not only do they talk about business challenges, but they have episodes where they focus on the work/life balance, self-awareness, self-improvement and wellness topics.
These are topics that are hardly talked about in the podcast community (especially business podcasts). Apart from that, they have great episode interviews with industry greats and influencers such as Darren Rowse of Problogger, Glen Carlson, Mark Penny, Shae Baxter only to name a few.
You can subscribe to their podcast on iTunes here.
9. Oh so Pinteresting by Cynthia Sanchez
Pinterest is all the buzz right now. And rightfully so. Pinterest is the image search engine. Yes, I do not think it is a social media platform.
On Oh so Pinteresting, Cynthia has a tunnel vision and focus on online marketing but only when associated with Pinterest. Cynthia was among the first in educating users and businesses on how to use Pinterest for their business. No matter what niche or industry your business is in.You will get to know how you can leverage Pinterest, include Pinterest in your marketing plan and most importantly how to snowball your blog’s traffic using Pinterest.
Oh so Pinteresting was acquired by Tailwind. You can still listen to over 100 episodes on Tailwind. More than enough to start your Pinterest marketing plan.
12. Women In Tech by Espree Devora
There was one thing I didn’t like about this podcast. Once you visit the site, you are required to sign up. I don’t mind signing up, but I would love at least a snippet of what the show is about before it required me to sign up. At least listen to one episode and decide for myself. Once I did, it redirected me to the iTunes playlist.
That said, Women in Tech has a new episode thrice a week at the moment. Espree features “Women in Tech” from founders to the software engineers. All these women share how they got to where they are and how they overcame some of the most common stumbling blocks. And most importantly lessons they have picked up on their journey.
To be honest, it was worth it signing up.
If you find the show interesting, go ahead and sign up.
Once you get on iTunes or Soundcloud, they start recommending similar shows to what you are currently listening to. At this point, I am getting over three new shows to listen to each day. Looks like I will actually get to the fifty point mark. Who knows?
Maybe even more.
14. This Girl Means Business by Carrie Green
This girl means business by Carrie Green of Female Entrepreneur Association

Also, Stitcher is no longer my favorite podcasting platform (as a listener for Android users). My current favorite is Castbox.

What I simply loved about this podcast, you can find it in almost every platform. Apart from that, Nicole lists all the platforms you can find the podcast on. So you can subscribe to it on the platform you prefer the most.
After that, the reviews from listeners of the show do not exemplify how amazing and tonne of knowledge you can learn from listening to one episode every week.

And with over 250 and episodes, you have something to listen to on your daily commute for two thirds of the year.
54. Tutorial Tuesday by Joanna Wiebe
This is not really a podcast. But I would have found this list to be incomplete without mentioning it. Joanna delivers a weekly live broadcast (so this is more of a webinar than a podcast) on Tuesdays at her office. (Watch out for the cat)
The episodes are not only impactful but they come with learning materials. In Tutorial Tuesdays expect to learn more about writing and coming up with copy for your marketing materials.
UPDATE: Due to time constraints I could not watch a show live. So I discovered a little hack. Click on the invite webinar link. Yes, after the webinar is over. You will get a replay email sent to you. I hope with time Copyhackers will showcase all episodes of the show on one page.

This has been fun. I started with a goal of 50. Gave up at around 5 but I still made it to more than 50 women hosted podcasts. And yes, I now know of women podcasters than men (possibly). The list is in no particular order.
Just as you start consuming, remember to implement more than you consume. Also, for any of the podcasts you take a liking to; do not forget to leave a candid feedback/review. A simple line or two goes a long way.
Over the past month, I have picked up on some good podcasts I haven’t even shared here. All because of that wonderful challenge my sister kinda gave to me. So which of the women hosted podcasts do you listen to? And which ones would you recommend that are not on the list already?
Let me know in the comment section below.
