It’s International Podcast Day! And while these international whatever days might be made up, our love for podcasts is oh so real. Especially when those podcasts are fronted and created by brilliant and funny women.
So what better occasion to round up a list of a few of our favorite lady-driven podcasts! Some of them we’ve featured before, some we can’t wait to feature in the future. All of them are pure comedy gold.
Lady To Lady
Lady to Lady is one of the first – and definitely still one of the greatest – comedian hosted podcasts out there. Each episode comics Brandie Posey, Barbara Gray and Tess Barker chat with another lady about lady problems, pop-culture, the news, and anything else that might affect a lady. Their chemistry is fire, and the show regularly makes us fall out of our chairs laughing.
2 Dope Queens
With hosts like Phoebe Robinson and Jessica Williams, 2 Dope Queens was bound to be a success. The hilarious comedians and writers talk dating and politics, feature other hilarious comics they love, and just generally let us in on their perfect friendship. It’s an absolute blast.
Speaking of amazing friendships, we seriously wanna hang out with The Fixxx hosts Jenni Ruiza and Jesenia. The hysterical twosome talk about sex, give the inside scoop on the life of a comedian, and give only the hottest of takes on pop-culture. We love their dating advice and their verrry dirty jokes.
My Favorite Murder
Ok so at first glance murder and true-crime might not seem like the most hilarious topics for a podcast. But hosts Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark are so effortlessly funny together, and their senses of humor are so incredibly weird, that they make murder seem like a fun lil romp. My Favorite Murder is our favorite hour of the week.
Host Julia Meltzer interviews real life couples (and ex-couples, uh-oh) about their fights, makeups, and how it feels to be in love. Heavy stuff, but Julia and the guests are all comedians so it’s frequently pee-your-pants hilarious. Plus, we’re pretty sure Honey has made us all better girlfriends.
This podcast from comedians Casey Wilson and Danielle Schneider breaks down episodes of The Real Housewives of Blankety Blank in the most hilarious possible way. Bitch Sesh is shallow D-list celebrity appreciation at it’s finest, and we love every second of it.
Call Your Girlfriend
If you don’t know about Call Your Girlfriend by now, you musta been living under a dang boulder. ‘Long distance besties’ Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman call each other every other week to talk current events, movies, feminism, and sometimes to 3rd party call another brilliant buddy. It’s like eavesdropping on convos between the coolest women you know.
Ever hungered for a comedy show about conspiracy theories? This quirky podcast from host Katelyn Hempstead is gonna hit the spot. Each week Hempsted and a guest discuss a new theory and along the way they talk celebrities, history, philosophy, vag jokes, and everything in between.
Black Girls Talking
This open format podcast covers everything from beauty products to Beyonce to writing for tv to being black in America. Hosts Alesia, Fatima, Ramou and Aurelia keep Black Girls Talking entirely real, while still making us snort-laugh at least five times per episode.
Can I Pet Your Dog?
CIPYD somehow created the kindest and most joyful corner of the internet. Hosts Renee Colvert and Allegra Ringo are dog-obsessed comedians who’ve found a community of like-minded sweethearts through their hysterical podcast. Segments like Mutt Minute and Hero Dogs keep the podcast varied, and the Instagram account is too cute for words.
Anna Faris Is Unqualified
Anna Faris might technically be unqualified to give relationship advice, but she’s wildly qualified to make us giggle. Each week her guests join her to give callers advice on love and sexy sex, and basically it’s like hanging out with Hollywood’s most fun and down-to-earth celebrities.
