Podcasts are our new favorite thing! Not only are they easily accessible, but they also make the hour-long morning commute to work that much more tolerable. For the average #BossBabe, listening to music while you’re working, sitting in traffic, or running on the treadmill is temporary entertainment, but you’ll most likely hit a point where no song can take your mind off of what you’re actually doing (once you feel that burn in your thighs, your scheduled 30-minute workout session may turn into ‘I can only last one more song’). Cue: podcasts!
Podcasts are a great way to educate yourself without having to go too far out of your way to do so! What’s even better is that there are podcasts on basically any topic you can think of — Humor, dating advice, political issues, unsolved crimes, and even embarrassing childhood stories for those of you who have yet to get over that time you made a fool of yourself in front of your entire 3rd grade class. Podcasts are the perfect element to add a little variety into your daily routine, and if there is one thing that every Boss Babe should know, it’s that there will never come a time when you’ve learned everything you need to know about business. So, we have put together a list of 10 of our favorite podcasts that will satisfy the mind of any busy woman!
1) The School of Greatness
“The School of Greatness is designed to open and wake you up. Open you up to the most inspiring ideas and minds in the world, and wake you up to your own greatness! Learn more at lewishowes.com or on Itunes.” — Lewis Howes, Host of The School of Greatness
2) American Fashion Podcast
“Everyone keeps saying we’re the podcast for fashion nerds. I didn’t set out to create that, I wanted to make something that would promote Made In USA to consumers. What we’ve ended up with instead is a bit more like a community radio station for the fashion industry. For people who can’t afford the hundreds of dollars you have to spend on a WWD subscription, we’re the only real news they’re getting about the industry they’re in.” — Charles Beckwith, Producer & Co-Host of American Fashion Podcast
3) Biz Women Rock!
“The Biz Women Rock podcast is a unique platform that dives in deep into the entrepreneurial journeys of savvy business women from all around the globe in all sorts of different industries. The authentic stories not only give insight into the reality of what building a business is really like, but offer practical nuggets of wisdom that listeners can implement into their own businesses!” — Katie Krimitsos, Founder of Biz Women Rock!

4) Entrepreneur on Fire
“EOFire is a 7 day a week podcast that interviews today’s most successful and inspiring entrepreneurs. Tune in daily to hear our guest’s worst entrepreneurial moment, their ah-ha lightbulb moment, their top recommend resources, and walk away from every episode with actionable advice to help you on your own entrepreneurial journey. Can’t wait to see you over on EOFire.com, and Prepare to IGNITE!” — John Lee Dumas, Founder & Host of EOFire
5) The Lively Show
“The Lively Show is designed to uplift, inspire and add a little extra intention to your everyday.” — Jess Lively, Founder & Host of The Lively Show
6) Lady Lovin’
“What makes our podcast unique is that we truly are three best friends having a totally organic and open conversation about our lives as independent women in our 20s. Each week listeners can expect to hear the most candid discussions with different guests spanning from entrepreneurs to comedians to pro athletes. No topic is left untouched.” — Lo Bosworth, Jilly Hendrix, and Greta Titelman, Hosts of Lady Lovin’
“StartUp is a podcast series about something that happens everyday in America, but we rarely get to see firsthand: starting a business. Season 2 tells the story of Dating Ring, a company that tries to combine old-fashioned matchmaking with technology. The founders are women in their 20s, outsiders in the male-dominated world of Silicon Valley. Over 10 episodes, StartUp takes you inside and documents some of the challenges these founders face: hellish fundraising, cofounder fights, and sexism.” — Lisa Chow, Co-Host of StartUp
8) The Tim Ferriss Show
“I’ve been very fortunate. My podcast (The Tim Ferriss Show) is consistently the #1 business podcast on iTunes. It is more popular than the BBC, Slate, Bill Maher, etc. Each episode, I deconstruct world-class performers from eclectic areas (investing, sports, business, art, etc.) to extract tactics, tools, and routines you can use. Past guests include Sophia Amoruso, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Amanda Palmer, Jon Favreau, Maria Popova, Whitney Cummings, and more. I have a blast doing it. It’s my favorite part of writing books without the writing 😊” — Tim Ferriss, Host of The Tim Ferriss Show
9) She Did It Her Way
Founded by three female solopreneurs, SDIHW began as an outlet for curiosity and turned into a fascinating medium to learn from women who hustle hard, inspire through their personal stories, and are beautifully authentic in every aspect of their life and business. — She Did It Her Way team
“The Reboot podcast showcases the heart and soul, the wins and losses, the ups and downs of startup leadership. On the show, Entrepreneurs, CEO’s, and Startup Leaders discuss with Jerry Colonna the emotional and psychological challenges they face daily as leaders.” — Dan Putt, Co-Founder of Reboot
