Astrology, gossip, fashion and all girl boss antics are making headlines in the media with these women led podcasts.

Though podcasting is a highly dominated male field, there are women who host successful podcasts and on top of this, the majority of podcast listeners are women. Women in the podcast industry are reshaping the landscape of power and importance in female voices.

“Call Her Daddy,” “Two Hot Takes,” “The Run Through With Vogue,” “A Better You” and “Blame it on the Stars” are five podcasts made for women, by women that are worth the listen.

Call Her Daddy

“Call Her Daddy,” a podcast hosted by Alexandra Cooper who asks the questions everyone wants to know. Cooper is charismatic and the blueprint for successful women in the podcasting industry, as Spotify’s second most popular podcast since 2021. (Graphic created in Canva by Jada Portillo)

Alexandra Cooper spearheaded the culture of girl talk podcasts when she started “Call Her Daddy” in 2018.

As the ultimate girl boss Cooper has created an empire with her podcast on Spotify, which features a common theme of making women feel empowered in their wins and losses with every episode she releases.

She releases new episodes two times a week and asks her guests hard-hitting and straight to the point questions. Cooper has notably brought on guests such as Jane Fonda, RuPaul, Wiz Khalifa, Paris Hilton and Lucy Hale.

Breaking barriers, Cooper built a network in late 2023, for the new generation of creators like Alix Earle and Madeline Argy called Unwell Network, a platform to uplift people in media that make lifestyle and pop culture content. The network serves as a mentorship for the newest age of influencers.
