1. Wellness Mama

(available via iTunes, Android, Stitcher, or RSS)

Are you concerned about manufactured chemicals invading every part of your life these days? Do you want to take your health back into your own hands instead of blindly taking over the counter medicines and casually tossing antibiotic-laden chicken breasts into your shopping cart?

Wellness Mama Katie Wells is a thoughtful leader in health innovation, rooting back to simplicity and natural solutions for everyday life. In her podcasts for women, you’ll find everything from green smoothies and recipes for natural cleaning products to helping kids through tantrums.

Girlboss Radio offers several channels of content for the hip, sophisticated, youthful listener. If you’re feeling meditative, Self Service with Jericho Mandybur is a Girlboss invention and a self-described “inner beauty school.” Get ready to find some meditative practices and get into some weird wellness.

If you need some comic relief and a listening ear for your problems, Jen Gotch is Ok…Sometimes is another Girlboss channel that addresses uncomfortable topics like meds for mental illness and just plain dealing with emotions. Find your “human” answers from a woman bravely sharing her own personal journey.


3. Women, Work and Worth

For the career-oriented woman who’s busting out of her seams and ready to start something new, check out Women, Work and Worth’s focused, highly intelligent and deeply meaningful content.

What’s blocking you from work you long to do? How do you choose things in your life on your own terms instead of feeling beholden to a million “shoulds” that seem to be prevalent? If you have a mission you would like to realize with your work, this is the place to find motivation and discussion about how to bring that to fruition.

Get that real NYC-style perspective in a no holds barred fashion. They’re not afraid to address racial tension (particularly the everyday life kind that slips through the cracks), relationships and more. For the most part, nothing is taboo . . . and they are absolutely hilarious!
