Top 10 Feminist Podcasts

1. The Guilty Feminist

We’re starting the list with the big one – everyone and their mother have been raving about The Guilty Feminist podcast. And there’s a good reason for it – it’s just really that brilliant. The podcast touches up on literally everything and there are no taboo topics. It focuses on 21st century feminism and explores the issues, the drama, the empowerment and all things feminists. It’s hosted by the comedian Deborah Frances-White, who is not only pleasant to listen to, but is also also an excellent host and chooses her guests perfectly. If you haven’t heard about it yet, do yourself a favor and subscribe to it NOW. You are welcome!

2. Woman’s Hour

This one has been around for a while. It started in the UK in the late 40’s, giving women voices from the early days. It’s broadcasted by BBC Radio 4, but it’s also available to listen on Spotify, Apple and all the other traditional podcast platforms. Woman’s Hour airs daily and tends to be on the more serious side of things – which can also be a good thing. It’s not a humorous program, but then oppression and patriarchy are not exactly hilarious. It’s definitely for those, who are curious about feminism, issues surrounding it, and eager to learn a thing or two.

3. Feminist Book Club: The Podcast

For all the bookies out there – a podcast and a book club in one. Sounds heavenly? It really is. The podcast not only promotes feminist literature, which let’s be honest, is both cool and very much needed, but also presents feminist authors and writers. Renee M. Powers, who is the host of this magical space, carries conversations with an incredible feminist writing and reading circle. Together, they explore diversity, female visibility in literature and plan your ‘to-read list’ for you. Doesn’t get much better than that.

4. Girl Tales: Feminist Fairytales for a New Generation

This one might seem all light and fun, but in reality it’s one of the most important projects in the feminist world. Whether you have children, cousins, nieces, nephews, younger sibling or you just want to have more faith in humanity, this podcast is an essential. Reimagined fairytales, written by an incredibly diverse team, show our youth that gender roles are dead. Fairytales included. They present fierce characters, who show young boys and girls, that they can really become anything they want to and not fall into the expectations of the society. The hosts are doing a truly remarkable job.
