5 Feminist Podcasts We Think You Should Know About


Anežka Turek

What better way to feed your brain than a feminist podcast? Whether you listen on your daily commute, in the bath or at work, podcasts can illuminate stories and perspectives that aren’t always picked up by mainstream media.

An accessible way to open your mind and learn new things, podcasts have a unique way of presenting information in an engaging and conversational style, often including interviews and discussions that highlight diverse peer perspectives and real-world experiences.

Once a platform for amateur audio-makers, podcasting is now pretty serious business, with 21.2 million streaming in 2022 alone. Today, we’re hoping to add to that number by recommending our top 5 Intersectional Feminist podcasts. Starting in no particular order:

The Polyester Podcast

Founded by Polyester, a self-published, intersectional feminist arts and culture magazine, the Polyester Podcast dissects pop culture discourse in a weekly podcast. The podcast aims to ‘bridge the gap of URL cyberfeminism with the IRL world’, and we’re here for it!

Episode recommendation: How Misogynists Are Using Infographics & Pseudoscience To Fuel Anti-Feminism (27th of March 2023)

Black Feminist Rants

Black feminist rants is an independent podcast that focuses on new voices in Reproductive Justice and Black Feminist movements, especially those of Black women, femmes, and queer people.

What makes us stronger

Perhaps more pertinent now than ever, What Makes Us Stronger is a series by Women for Women International, an organisation which supports women who are often forgotten and overlooked — the survivors of war and conflict.

What Makes Us Stronger features the voices of courageous women who’ve lived through unbelievably difficult times in countries including Afghanistan, Syria, and South Sudan. The podcast explores how each of them took on new roles and found the strength to keep going.
