During the pandemic and working from home, I slacked on my daily self-care routine of listening to podcasts. Catching up with listening to women and a few men in my ear as I move about New York City during my return to work and travels allows my mind to think and laugh about something other than the norm. I feel like I missed an entire season of content and have to either catch up or just tune in with the latest episode and keep it moving.
While celebrating Women’s HERstory Month, here is a list of podcasts and their latest episode (as of the date of this post) that either features or solely has women as the main voice in my ear providing guidance, self-care advise, business highlight and sometimes plain foolery.
The Friend Zone –
Co-Hosts Dustin Ross, HeyFranHey & Assante explore where pop culture and Zen living meet. To summarize Fran I’d say, to hear her voice is like listening to the waves of the ocean with loud noises in the far distance. She’s calming. Her wellness segment of the show if a highlight of mine. I enjoy hearing about the business of the week especially if it falls under a health and wellness category.
The Read –
Co-Hosts Kid Fury and Crissle throw shade and spill tea with a flippant and humorous attitude, covering hip-hop and pop culture’s most trying stars.
