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 eight essential social media podcasts for women who love business.
