"Girl Power" Podcasts You Don't Want to Miss

I can't tell you how many times I've heard people dismiss podcasts, like any other thing in life-----"I want to, but I don't have time." If that's the case, unfortunately none of us do. The great thing about the nature of podcasts is you don't have to have the 20 minutes, 45 minutes, hour it takes to listen to them blocked off in your schedule. If you have time during the day to take a shower, drive to work, walk to class, exercise, whatever, then you have time to sprinkle some podcasts into your life. Maybe you want to listen to them for self improvement, knowledge, or sheer entertainment----whatever the reason, you can benefit from transforming the mindless information you ingest during the day into something positive. They can enhance any free time you have + educate you ways you may not even know!

Today, women are coming together to do some incredible things from national marches to the #MeToo hashtag to continuing to give life to the human race. Podcasts may be a small thing compared to those, but the impact they're having on women everywhere is huge. Check out these two podcasts for some kick*** women who are taking the world by storm.
