Podcasts for Women...

And *Anyone & Everyone* Who Cares About Celebrating & Learning From Women's Stories and Perspectives

I love a good podcast. Especially one that shares women's voices and other underrepresented perspectives. But I did a little digging, and it turns out only 22% of podcasts are hosted by women!

So I did some research (and a lot of listening) and put together a list of 16 podcasts by women thought leaders from all walks of life, covering everything from personal stories to professional advice. Whether you want to keep up on the latest in pop culture or get inspired to start your own business, this list has something for you!


Without further ado, here is PowerToFly's List of Podcasts for Women - And Anyone Who Cares About Celebrating & Learning From Women's Stories and Perspectives... (Cough, cough this should be everyone).
