Inspiring Podcasts to Boost Your Morning Commute


Whether it’s your daily morning commute or getting ready for the day, we love a good podcast—especially ones that teach us something new, offer an interesting perspective, or inspire us. So we’ve rounded up 5 of our favourite female run podcasts right now that are definitely worth downloading:

The Ikonn Experience:


You might be familiar with one of their four businesses or products: Luxy Hair, The 5 Minute Journal, the Productivity Planner, and Love Hair. This powerhouse Toronto couple, Alex and Mimi Ikonn, have just launched a podcast sharing detailed recounts of their life and knowledge in starting multiple successful businesses. We love how honest and detailed The Ikonns get with their story of how they truly got where they are today. Try listening to “How We Built, Scaled, and Sold Our Multi-Million Dollar Luxy Hair Business” (fascinating) and the “Answering Your Questions” episode. We guarantee you’ll take something new and helpful away from these two.

Second Life:

An original series hosted by Hillary Kerr , produced by My Domaine, “that spotlights successful women who've made major career changes—and fearlessly mastered the pivot.” A few of our favourite episodes include: Marianna Hewitt, Lauren Conrad, and Eva Chen. If you’re thinking of switching up your career path or wanting to transition to a full-time pursuit of your passion, this ones for you. 

The Glossy Podcast:


Learn from the best marketers, creative directors, and CEO’s of high performing beauty and fashion brands like Glossier, Saks, and Shiseido. We love how in-depth and informative the interviews get with guests, sharing valuable insight into commerce, branding, customer retention, and scaling a retail business. 

Call Your Girlfriend:

When you just need a good chat with your bestie, this podcast feels like a good conversation with that one friend who always gives the best advice. Why? Because the hosts, Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman, are actually long-distance besties who call each other every week to discuss everything we care about. From politics to female viagra, it’s like eavesdropping on a witty, warm, and fiercely opinionated gabfest that makes for a quick engaging listen on your morning commute. To get a taste, we recommend listening to the “Instagram Anxiety” episode for some relevant ranting as well as actual constructive ways to deal with IG stress/fomo without deleting the app (because who has the will power to do that?).

Skimm’d from The Couch:

The Skimm’s morning newsletter is already a part of our daily morning routines, so we were delighted when we discovered the two founders, Carly Zakin and Danielle Weinberg, also have a weekly podcast. Instead of news though, the two sit down with powerful female leaders discussing everything from nailing your pitch to investors to behind-the-scenes of helping politicians perfect their image.
