Podcasts for women come in all varieties.
Some are interview style, like our Girlfriendology podcasts. Some are women chatting, like our girlfriends at the Diva Cast. And, others combine the two like Vicky & Jen. The common element: we all share information that is interesting, informative and/or entertaining – kinda like a great conversation with women can be!
Whatever format, there seems to be an audience of women who share views, enjoy the discussion and who relate to the guests and host. We enjoy learning from each other, like in Words To Mouth (author interview podcast by girlfriend Carrie), laughing with each other (back to the Diva Cast) and being inspired (okay, another plug for Girlfriendology podcasts!). So, we thought a TOP TEN list of great podcasts for women might introduce you to some new podcasting girlfriends and some amazing, inspiring, informative guests.
