2. Lady don’t take no.
For those who want their political commentary with a dash of beauty advice, Alicia Garza launched the podcast Lady Don’t Take No. She is paying homage to the distinctive way of doing things in the Bay Area. Garza will share her heated opinions on a variety of topics, including how to manage microaggressions at the airport and why Fenty Beauty saves lives. Lady Don’t Take No will deliver all the genuine and none of the false every Friday. Why? Lady, don’t take no for an answer.
REVIEW ER, London, UK 12/03/2021 Authentic, smart and empowering A you-must-listen podcast. I came across this podcast while searching about Alicia Garza’s excellent book, which was yet to be published. I have listened all the earlier podcasts, and now wait for Friday evening in anticipation to another excellent interview. It is the openness, authenticity and intelligent approach to relevant political and societal topics that makes this podcast so relevant to our times. Simply excellent. Thank you for making this one of the best podcasts available. ER
3. Terrible, thanks for asking.
Sincere responses to the “How are you?” question
The program relentlessly and unabashedly ploughs into topics that most people find too unpleasant to discuss.
The long-running podcast by Nora McInerny on suffering, bereavement, and being able to say you’re not okay is obviously non-gender specific in its viewpoint. However, the show’s vibrant, encouraging audience and the guests who choose to share painful emotions and life facts lean slightly to female.
REVIEW Kailey Dedic 04/28/2022 Terrible, Thanks for asking The content may not be for everyone in the high school age group, but after the loss of many family members this podcast has made me feel that I am not alone. The stories all revolve around grief, but all the stories are very different. Thank you for sharing them so others can feel heard. From this podcast I have learned that everyone is grieving something they just need to figure out what it is. I just started reading It’s okay to Laugh: (Crying is Cool Too) and have learned the same things from that so far.

REVIEW Nada Karame 05/11/2022 General thoughts about all of Oprah’s podcasts In all honesty, Oprah’s podcasts are so heartfelt and I’ve had so many of what she calls “Ah ha” moments!!!! Its touched my soul on every level. I’ve laughed along, I’ve cried, I’ve experienced other people pain, along with my own. Its helped me along my own journey so very much🙏🏻 Thank you for creating such an amazing platform that is so beneficial to anyone who is searching!!!!
5. Second life.
“Hillary Kerr, the creator of Who What Wear, conducts interviews with prominent women who revolved their professional paths midway in their careers in Second Life. The enlightening and open discussions reveal the extraordinary backstories of some of today’s most influential founders and executives, including Jen Atkin, a celebrity hairstylist and founder of the haircare brand Ouai, Carla Hall, a TV personality and cookbook author, and Sarah Gibson Tuttle, the founder and CEO of Olive & June.
REVIEW Adellacasa 11/27/2021 Educational, escapism, expertise… everything! When I have time, this podcast is such a special part of my day. The guests are so inspirational and yet somehow relatable and vulnerable, thanks in large part to Hillary’s interview skills. The stories shared are really special.
6. Our body politic.

7. Still buffering.
“With episode topics spanning from angsty poetry to the internet to college life, listen as sisters Sydnee McElroy, Teylor Smirl, and Rileigh Smirl (of the McElroy family universe of podcasts) tackle the question of what it’s like to be a teen. Although it would undoubtedly be educational for today’s youth, a strong dose of reminiscence makes it entertaining listening for ladies of all ages.”
REVIEW hcmama207/25/2021 You’re the sibs I didn’t have. Love Sydnee from Sawbones so I can’t believe it took me ages to discover there was this whole other podcast over here! I have been catching up on your whole library of pst episodes and it’s a treasure trove of content. I really love all your different perspectives because of your different experiences in life. It’s amazing to hear what you have to say about everything from Sailormoon to Taylor Swift to Strongbad to Schitts Creek! I’m blown away. I’m an instant fan. Love you all!
When we were young and taking history lectures, we only had one query: Where are the ladies? I present Womanica. Learn about many remarkable women from history in just 5 minutes per day.

13. Maintenance phase.
The brilliant author Aubrey Gordon, who created the podcast You’re Wrong About, and Michael Hobbes work together like a hero team to expose the myths and dubious science that underlie popular diets and weight-loss fads. It’s funnier and more educational than anything a diet-obsessed person ever told you. Let it alienate you, or at the very least let it encourage you to indulge in packed ice cream.
REVIEW. leahkernrd 07/01/2022 THANK YOU!!! Aubrey and Mike- as an anti-diet dietitian, I am so grateful for the research and labor you put into this incredible free resource. I send episodes to many of my clients. Thank you for all that you do

Im so happy I did. Listening to Alex's podcast has been a life saver. I have laughed, cried, felt inspired, you name it. Listening to this podcast makes me feel seen and heard with SO many relatable stories. Its a true testament of sisterhood and community for those of us who don't have much of a social life.
