Whether it is a long car ride, folding laundry, or going for a run, podcasts will always have a place in our lives. They provide an escape and distraction from the real world, without having to fully pay attention. Showcasing amazing personalities, podcasts hosted by women all have that relatable and real feeling that will leave you wanting to hear more. If you are looking to get into the podcast world but do not know where to start, here are five female-run podcasts I recommend being your next listen.
