8 Essential Social Media Podcasts for Women Who Love Business


While researching podcasts that would help women improve their social media skills, I came across dozens of lists celebrating and describing popular shows.  “Great,” I said to myself.  “This ought to be a straightforward article to produce and share.”  There was one glaring problem, however, that other writers hadn’t notice or cared about enough to address.  One hundred percent of the shows mentioned were hosted by men.  All of them.  Stunning, I know.  Well, to be fair, two of them were hosted by women, but both had retired.  It’s enough to make a lady rub her temples and stare at her computer in disbelief.  I know I did.

I couldn’t accept there weren’t any shows produced by females worth promoting.  I was already aware of three programs that fit the bill because I listen to them regularly.  It was a compelling challenge to dig deeper and uncover additional gems.  Isn’t it time we had our own list of social media shows anyway?  Let’s support these hard-working women and learn a few strategies and tips along the way.  Give a listen to these 8 essential social media podcasts for women who love business.

  9. I never listen to podcasts, but with a female-led list like this, I think I should start.

    I used to be an HR Director and was always dismayed at the national conferences because the field is dominated by women, but the top leaders were men. What the heck?

    • Hi, RoseMary. “What the heck?” I couldn’t agree more. That’s why I am a big fan of promoting women business owners. They have to work harder to get the same recognition and pay as men. Thanks for your comment.

    • Hi, Doreen. There are so many people who just don’t prefer podcasts to written or live, visual content. I actually like most forms of content because I’m fickle. Thanks for sharing.

    • Hi, Sushmita. I certainly understand that! There are only so many hours in a day. I love the idea of starting a podcast someday too. Baby steps.
