One of the things I love about a podcast is how accessible they are. They make every subject, however broad or daunting, wild or wonderful, available in a fun, easy-to-consume way. Commuting to work and want to catch up on current events? Listen to podcasts on Itunes. Going on a run and interested about the latest in African culture? Listen some more podcasts. Need to pretend you know something about finance before your work holiday party? Listen to a podcast.
So which ones should you absolutely, without a doubt, 100 percent have in your arsenal? We rounded up 10 of the best podcasts for women, so you can make sure you’re listening to the best of the best
Podcast No. 1: Rants and Randomness
Rants and Randomness is the brainchild of ‘Side-Eye Sorceress’ Luvvie Ajayi. In this podcast, she covers all things pop culture and what is relevant to women’s lives. She says “There will be judgment, but lovingly. There will be shade, but that’s necessary sometimes. There will be (of course) rants, because why not? There will be randomness, with me spotlighting things I love. And there will be special guests: people you already know and love and people you need to know.”
Podcast No. 2: The SCHICK Podcast
Of course, every smart, stylish and successful woman should be listening to the SCHICK Podcast. The SCHICK Podcast is the new home of unscripted conversations for stylish African women (and men) on the go who want to know what’s now, what’s next and what you can expect from the magazine dubbed as “what’s missing in African fashion”.
Podcast No. 3: Not Your African Cliché
Nigerian women come together to create a podcast? You know it must be lit and hilarious. ‘Not Your African Cliché’ is described as “interesting opinions and a mutual disgust for ignorant comments about our continent.” The ladies are in their 20s and their using this platform to ensure that the world doesn’t have just one view of Africa. They explore work, life in general, friendship and fashion. So good to see women fighting against the African Single Story “rather than letting disney channel and Nat Geo Wild do it”.
