Podcasts for Gals on the Go!

It's the truth, our parents have given podcasts a bad rep. But podcasts aren’t all serious and no fun and games. In fact, plenty of your favorite social media influencers have probably already started their own about their young adult life. In college, you often have to adopt the “gal on the go” mentality. You grab lunch, coffee, and return to the daily grind. No time for chit chat or doubting yourself, these podcasts are here to inspire you to get into that zone.

 

  1. “Gals On The Go”

If you’ve heard of the popularized “lifestyle” channels on YouTube, then you probably know that Danielle Marie Carolan has been all the buzz after recently hitting half a million subscribers. Danielle and her fellow YouTuber bestie, Brooke Miccio, are your very own motivational speakers, and they’re in the same boat as they tackle college life at UGA. They’ve grown up on YouTube together and started up their joint Podcast channel this summer on Spotify and Apple Music. Each podcast they share their “highs and lows” of the week and then dive into their “girl boss” related topic of the day. Each week they share their messages on self-care, body image, dating and more.

2. “Thick & Thin”

Katy Bellotte spills all the beans on the truth behind a millennial girl lifestyle in New York City.

Listen to Katy’s podcasts or follow her blog if you want to hear about how to deal with the trials and tribulations of our “swiping culture” society while living in the Big Apple.

3. “Small Doses”

Amanda Seales never fails to spit the truth during her “Small Doses” podcast episodes. She makes you realize there’s more to college than “just getting that piece of paper for your degree” but also recognizing the social issues and societal norms that affect your everyday life. You only change throughout your adolescence and early adulthood as much as you allow yourself to change; if not, you enter and leave college the same exact person, the ultimate fear. She helps you come to terms with the bitter truth of young adult struggles and the intersectional factors involved. Seales reveals the “side effects of” almost any topic while reassuring your sanity throughout those hectic days in college. She reminds you life is messy, but you got this.
