Inspiration, joy, sex, food and more: 6 female-hosted podcasts

This is the time of year that many women think: “New year. New me.”

If you’ve heard yourself say that as you have driven along through the night, here are some podcasts you could listen to in order to make the new you the best ever. These could help if you are thinking of switching jobs, maybe becoming an owner-operator and just making improvements in your life in general.

Take a listen to:

slumber-partyThe Big Leap Show is the podcast if you need inspiration to make a change in your life; perfect for the new year.  Host Kathlyn Hart highlights successful women who have taken big leaps to pursue their true passion. Hart’s podcast is ideal for those looking for the inspiration to follow through with their dreams.

Happier With Gretchn Rubin lives up to its name as the host provides “practical, manageable advice about happiness and good habits.” Rubin’s cohost and guinea pig is her sister, Elizabeth Craft, who refers to Rubin as her “happiness bully.”

Chewing The Fat is all about food. Sometimes as a driver, you can get into a food rut, giving into temptations simply because you’re bored, or making less than brilliant choices at the fast food place during your break from driving. Louisa Chu and Monica Eng talk food, cooking and dining. They might provide that needed inspiration to start eating better or begin preparing meals in your cab.

Death, Sex, and Money  is the podcast you need when you can’t necessarily call your BFF. Created by WNYC in New York City, this podcast is hosted by Anna Sale and takes on “the big questions and hard choices that are often left out of polite conversation.” It includes interviews with actors and other newsmakers, many of them women tackling demanding issues.

Slumber Party with Alie and Georgia  When was the last time you went to a slumber party? A long time ago, right? Well, this podcast will inspire you to build a fort in your sleeper, load up on snacks and listen as Alie and Georgia tell ghost stories, play games, and interview people you want to know about. This is the kind of lighthearted podcast you might enjoy at the end of a demanding day on the road. While it may not change your life, it will give you a few laughs. And, who doesn’t need that?
