Women over 50 have entered a unique phase in their lives where their challenges, needs, and desires are slightly different. What we used to listen to before no longer applies to our lives now. Podcasts for women can help us navigate this new stage in our lives and thrive moving forward.

I discovered motivational podcasts for women about 10 years ago, and they have altered the way I do things and how I view life. They have inspired me to challenge myself and step out of my comfort zone. They have empowered me to believe in myself and go after what I want in life.

So I did some digging, and below is the list of the most popular podcasts for women over 50, some funny podcasts for middle-aged women, and some inspirational podcasts for women.

Why Listen to Podcasts?

The one thing I love most about listening to podcasts for women is that the woman on the other side gets me. She knows my struggles; she feels my pain; she wants me to succeed.

If you find the right podcast (and I hope the list below of the best podcasts for women is good for you), it can completely alter your life.

And the best 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?

How Do I Choose a Good Podcast to Listen To?

That’s a good question, and in the overwhelming sea of podcasts, it can be hard to find the one that is best for you. The ones I share with you here today are all very popular and super amazing.

You can also go to Apple or Spotify (or whatever platform you listen to podcasts on) and do a quick search to see what comes up. If there are ratings or reviews, read them.

You can also take a few minutes to listen to the beginning of a podcast and see if the speaker sounds like someone you would want to listen to.

What Are the Topics For Women’s Podcasts?

The topics for podcasts for women vary greatly from fitness to Christianity and relationships to solo travel. You will find everything you are looking for with a simple search on Google or any of the platforms I mentioned above.

If you are starting over in life, you’ll find a podcast for that.

If you are looking to get healthy after 50, there’s one for that too.

If you are looking to leave your toxic relationship, you’ll find help with that too.

If you need advice on how to deal with a narcissist in your life, well, you’ll find that too.

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!

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 they are also good for women over 60, 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.
