March Podcast Roundup: Women's History Month
Women’s History Month is a wonderful time to celebrate the accomplishments of strong women throughout history. Likewise, it’s also a great opportunity to spotlight the incredible women of today who are breaking boundaries and inspiring the next generation of female leaders. And at SXM Media, we know many powerful podcasters who are doing just that—and making a positive impact with their audience. It’s no wonder we reach more female podcast listeners than anyone else, according to Edison Research!
SHE with Jordan Lee Dooley
SHE with Jordan Lee Dooley is a faith-based, workshop-style podcast that’s uniquely designed to help ambitious women reach their potential. In every episode, national bestselling author Jordan Lee Dooley dishes out truths, tips, and actionable takeaways around issues, such as cultivating a home, managing finances, women’s health, and goal setting. The format is intimate and personal, evoking a sense that listeners are sitting down with a good friend who’s coaching them through life.
This podcast explores what happens when women break the rules (i.e., those unwritten expectations of how we should live our lives). Each conversation starts with a question that hosts Cristen Conger and Caroline Ervin (former hosts of Stuff Mom Never Told You) tackle through obsessive research, guest testimonials, and a solid dose of delightful feminist rage. They reach an audience of highly-educated female listeners who are sure to walk away from every episode feeling empowered and unstoppable.
Lovers and Friends
There is so much great and life-changing information about sex and intimacy, but for many women it can feel taboo and inaccessible. Thankfully, in her More Sauce podcast, Lovers and Friends, intimacy expert and sexologist Shan Boodram is unpacking everything about sex, relationships, and the science of attachment. Each week, she speaks with expert guests and friends who tell all. The show provides a safe space for women to learn more about their own pleasure and sexual health. It’s everything you should have gotten from sex education, but didn’t.
