5 Women-Run Podcasts to Get You Motivated for 2022

5 Women-Run Podcasts to Get You Motivated for 2022

New Years 2022 has come and gone, and my resolutions for self-betterment have hit the back burner. Between homework and extracurriculars, writing in your newly-purchased manifestation journal or picking up that book you’ve been meaning to start can seem like impossible tasks. However, one thing I have found that has been  easy to keep up with even while juggling a packed schedule is listening to podcasts.  

There's nothing better than listening to a podcast on my walk to class or at the gym that’s both motivating and educational. So, I have included a list of five podcasts  written by women, for women that will help you conquer your goals and resolutions this year.   

1.     Redefining Ambition – The Women's Network 

Every week, Redefining Ambition features different women that have done  remarkable things in their respective lives and fields. They range from doctors, to CEO!s, to college students, all of whom are members of The Women's Network. This podcast tackles issues that women face in college and in the workforce, and each guest comes to the podcast equipped with their tips on how to succeed as well  as their own personal stories of overcoming hardship. 

2.     Anything Goes – Emma Chamberlain 

If you’re a woman in college, you know Emma Chamberlain. Chamberlain is an online  influencer and content creator whose claim to fame is her authenticity and relatable style of content. These traits are seen loud  and clear on her podcast, Anything Goes. Chamberlain discusses  relationships, both romantic and friendly, how difficult being a woman in your 20!s can be, and how to not lose sight of who you are while trying to find your way in the world. Chamberlain’s podcasts that are lighthearted and guaranteed make you laugh! On the Anything Goes podcast, truly anything goes and listening will  make you feel like you’re chatting with a friend.

3.     The Daily – The New York Times 

As a college student, I know how hard it is to stay up to date on what's going on in the world. However, The Daily, hosted by Michael Barbaro, makes it fun and easy to learn about the most newsworthy event of the day. Each  podcast is 20 - 30 minutes long and is told like a story. I guarantee it’ll hook you in and keep you listening! 

4.     We Can Do Hard Things – Glennon Doyle 

Glennon Doyle is the author of the New York Times bestseller, Untamed, and with her podcast We Can Do Hard Things, all of the golden advice contained in that book and more is transported to a podcast. Doyle's main message of the podcast is to be authentic and have difficult conversations. She breaks down tough issues like mental illness as well as finding your passion and purpose.  

5.     The Broad Experience – Ashley Milne-Tyte 

As women who will soon be entering the workforce (or already are), this podcast is so important to listen to. Milne-Tyte talks about all the issues women face in the workforce. But not only does she explain the problems women face, she provides listeners with the tools they need to help stand up against these issues, as well as how you can be an ally to others.
