We love a good podcast and are guessing you do, too. Right?!?
Well, you are not alone – 44% of podcast listeners are women. But, where are all the women hosts?
There’s a gender gap when it comes to hosts with only 22% of podcasts being hosted by a woman, and we decided, in honor of International Podcast Day, September 30th, we would shine a light on some of our favorite women podcasters, who are sharing their voice, passion and expertise through the podcasting platform. Plus, you are going to be delighted with all of the wisdom and inspiration they share. Get ready to hit the “subscribe” button, my friends.
And, what about you? Are you itching to get behind the mic?
For many entrepreneurs, podcasting can be a fantastic platform to share your expertise. From being a podcast guest to hosting your own show, there are endless possibilities.

We’ve compiled a list of our favorites for you to enjoy and reference.
