New podcasts are popping up in our social media feed daily! As the web becomes more visual (graphics! video! filters!) it’s refreshing to see growth in a medium that doesn’t require you to have your face beat to share your content. There are so many podcasts worth bookmarking and sharing that we can’t keep up. Here are just a few that are on our radar these days…
1. Super Mamas
Every Tuesday, the Lopez sisters provide a judgment-free space where new, expecting, and experienced mothers can come together to learn from one another; be inspired by each other, and bond over their similar upbringings and cultural background. They’re also super fun and super smart!
2. Myleik – #MyTaughtYou
The Founder of Curlbox shares gems she’s learned along the way and interviews rising entrepreneurs. Judging by all of the tweets in our feed, her audience LOVES the knowledge she drops and wait for her episodes like folks line up for the new iPhone.
Need we say more? Over 10 million followers listen to Pat Flynn share his entrepreneurship and money making tips. As content creators and influencers with our own platforms, it only makes sense to use our skills to our advantage. We should each have at least one passive revenue stream (if not several!) Tune into Pat’s podcast to hit the ground running.
4. Being Boss
Emily and Kathleen share daily insights they’ve learned along the way about being a boss, putting in work and breaking the rules without sacrificing their true selves. We love that they’ve gone from entrepreneurs to having their own successful branding agency, to teaching us how we can ball too.
5. Another Round with Heben and Tracy
Grab your favorite cocktail! Heben and Tracy cover everything from race, gender and pop culture to squirrels, mangoes, and bad jokes, all in one boozy show backed by the Buzzfeed brand. We’re hooked. ‘Nuff said.
The StartUp is a podcast about what it’s really like to get a business off the ground. Expect interviews, honest stories and tricks of the trade in a beautifully produced format. Season 1 might still be one of our favorites – it’s all about starting up a start up. Meta. Yet brilliant.
Blogalicious family member, Akilah S. Richards, and her guests discuss the fears and the fares (costs) of raising free black and brown children in a world that tends to diminish, dehumanize, and disappear them. It’s brutally honest and completely necessary. #RaisingFreePeople
8. Gilmore Guys
Whether you love the Gilmore Girls TV show or not, everybody has an opinion on it. Including the Gilmore Guys! Super fans Kevin T. Porter and Demi Adejuyigbe go deep into Gilmore Girls episode by episode with special guests to analyze, praise, mock, and gab like gals about all things Stars Hollow and beyond. We’re here for it.
Call Your Girlfriend is a podcast for long-distance besties everywhere, hosted by Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman and produced by Gina Delvac. Every other week, eavesdrop as Aminatou and Ann call each other to discuss the intricacies of pop culture and the latest in politics. It’s inspired at least one blog post by Justice Fergie, and we’re betting they’ll inspire you, too.
