7 Podcasts That Might Become Your New Favorites

1. Ologies

Ologies is a cool science-scentric podcast. Host Alie Ward talks to a range of scientists about what they’re studying—from squid to sports, laughter, birds, sex, the cosmos, volcanoes and more. It’s fun and light and will give you some serious science knowledge. (alieward.com/ologies)

2. Unladylike

Co-founders Cristen Conger and Caroline Ervin explore what happens when women break the rules. Episodes cover topics like responding to catcallers, how to be a boss witch and the joys of having solid galpals. Also included, advice from resident grandma Rosalyn Koo and “a solid dose of delightful feminist rage.” (unladylike.co)

3. She-Explores

4. Pantsuit Politics

Conversations about news and politics, but with no shouting or insults. Hosts Sarah Stewart Holland (a progressive) and Beth Silvers (a conservative), tackle current events and what’s happening in Washington—from the gun debate and DACA to the latest political news. (pantsuitpoliticsshow.com)

5. Two Dope Queens

Seriously engaging, energetic and hilarious, Phoebe Robinson and Jessica Williams host this live show out of Brooklyn. It’s realtalk about the real stuff women talk about—uncensored, flush with f-words and funny the whole way. (wnycstudios.org/shows/dopequeens)

6. Spiritualish

Hosted by Meadow DeVor and Laura McKowen, Spiritualish is like so many of the conversations we have with our girlfriends, where we talk about asking for help (and how we kind of stink at it), how we handle it when the crap hits the fan and other such topics. It’s “sometimes spiritual, sometimes not.” (spiritualishpodcast.com)

7. My Favorite Murder

A true crime comedy podcast hosted by Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark, My Favorite Murder shares stories of murder, which sounds dark, but it’s a pretty darn funny show, if that makes sense. It’s an excellent blend of dark tales and lots of laughter. (myfavoritemurder.com)
