The success of comedian Deborah Frances-White’s podcast was no surprise, as ‘guilty feminism’ is a phrase many of us have used at some point or another. It allowed listeners to explore their feminism openly and honestly, and accept that they don’t have all the answers all of the time – and that’s okay. Frances-White has become widely known in the UK for her podcast, which gets a ton of great guests on to chat about everything from politics and history to dating and life advice. Oh, and it’s side-splittingly funny.
In the world of podcasting, the possibilities are endless. And it goes without saying that anyone can listen to and enjoy any podcast they like, whether it’s as broad as general news or something niche like technology and business. But let’s be real, there’s an awful lot of male-presented podcasts out there. That’s not to say women don’t enjoy them too, but if you’re looking for something a little more female-focused, it can be tricky to cut through the noise to find it.
