If you love listening to podcasts, I’ve compiled a list of 13 of the best podcasts for women over 50, some funny podcasts for middle-aged women, and some inspirational podcasts for women.

The great thing about listening to a weekly podcast is that you can listen while you’re doing anything! Driving, eating, walking, wherever. How awesome is that?

If podcasts aren’t really your thing, though you should try them anyway, and you prefer to read blogs, here’s a great directory for sites that might interest you!

Podcasts Are a Great Tool For Self-Improvement


While there are tons of podcasts for women over 50, I’ve carefully chosen these for a few different reasons. I hope you like them.

I strongly believe that if you want a happier life, there are certain things and changes you must make to your life in order to achieve that:

  • working on improving your mental health
  • switching up daily routines
  • replacing bad habits with good habits
  • listen to more uplifting shows/videos/podcasts

You get the idea. Dump all the toxic stuff in your life and find ways to bring in more good stuff! A positive change, if you will! I also have a podcast but I’m so inconsistent when it comes to uploading episodes it’s borderline pathetic. However, you can check it out anyway. It really is good and the past episodes are pretty powerful. Women Blazing Trails.

In no order of importance, here are the best podcasts for women over 50…

13 Best Podcasts For Women Over 50


While these are 13 podcasts for women over 50, I do have to mention that these are good podcasts for women over 60 or 70, or 80!!

1 Live Awake with Sarah Blondin

The very first podcast I ever listened to was an uplifting podcast for women by Sarah Blondin-Live Awake. I found her on Insight Timer. She has the most amazing soothing voice I’ve ever heard.

I was going through a really hard time personally at the time I found her, and every time I listened, I sobbed like a baby. If you’re struggling with self-love or self-esteem or self anything for that matter, go listen to her.

You won’t be sorry, and make sure you have lots of tissues on hand. In my opinion, this is the best self-help podcast I’ve ever listened to.
