International Women’s Day Podcast Special

March 8, 2024

This International Women’s Day we’d like to celebrate by sharing four of our favourite female fronted podcasts with you.

There’s something for everyone – from the secrets to Happiness and learning from Failure to a deep dive into Music and pop culture.

How to Fail With Elizabeth Day

A podcast that celebrates the things in life that haven’t gone right and what we might learn from them along the way. Every week, Elizabeth’s guest explores three failures, and what these failures have taught them about how to grow and succeed, better.

Top Tip: One of our favourites is when Elizabeth met the extraordinary artist Marina Abromovic – known for expressing through her work, the thoughts, feelings and emotional impulses that lie beyond words.

Black Girl Songbook

Join author and former Vibe editor-in-chief Danyel Smith as she celebrates and uplifts the talents of Black women in the music industry. Tune in for in-depth discussions with your favourite songwriters, producers, and artists, as well as anecdotes from Danyel. Plus, you’ll hear the songs of Black women who changed the landscape of American music forever.

Top tip: One of our favourites is from 2022 to celebrate the wonderful singer that is Aretha Franklin from Aretha’s girlhood and deep, deep relationship with her mother, Barbara, through Aretha’s womanhood and adult life.

Happy Place

Fearne Cotton talks to incredible people about life, love, loss, and everything in-between as she reveals what happiness means to them.

Top Tip: So many to choose from! But this interview with Vicky Pattison is a beautifully open and honest conversation. 

Straight Up

Join bestie journalists Kathleen and Ellie for a pop culture podcast lifting the lid on all things fame.

Top Tip: We love listening to Ellie and Kathleen, a perfect pod for interesting views on all sorts of topics – we particularly enjoyed this one when they chatted to author Emma Gannon about chronic burnout and our obsession with achievement.
