Rewind ten years ago, and podcasting was little more than a hobby. Now, it’s become a full-fledged career for many, offering a creative outlet for them to explore topics that fascinate like relationships, true crime, pop culture, and more. However, with more than 850,000 popular podcasts on the market, and 30 million podcast episodes to wade through, it can be tough jumping into one without knowing if it’s truly worth your time.

Removing the guesswork from the equation, we introduce you to the podcasts unanimously endorsed by the editors at Savoir Flair. Not only are they lighthearted and hosted by women, but they will keep you chuckling the entire time.


Forever 35

No topic is off-limits for Doree Shafrir and Kate Spencer, the masterminds behind the Forever 35 podcast. From discussing their self-care routines to what they are making for dinner, this laidback podcast is like listening in on a conversation between two humorous women – both of whom you’ll want as BFFs.

With Special Guest Lauren Lapkus

A dilemma of wanting to start a podcast while disliking the idea of hosting led actress Lauren Lapkus to launch this unique comedy podcast on which the host is the guest and vice versa. Not only does each guest on With Special Guest Lauren Lapkus assume the role of host and decide the subject of the episode, but the podcast also highlights the exceptional improv skills possessed by Lapkus.

Girls Gotta Eat

The brainchild of Rayna Greenberg and Ashley HesseltineGirls Gotta Eat has gained tremendous traction in two short years. Modern dating is anything but easy, and these girls address even the weirdest of your dating woes – with a hefty dose of comedy, of course. Everyone from therapists and psychiatrists to writers and pop culture figures make guest appearances, too.

Too Tired to be Crazy

How do you get over someone you never even dated? Why is he ghosting me but watching my stories? What’s the meaning of life? If you’ve ever asked such questions, even to yourself, the Too Tired to be Crazy podcast is made for you. This hilarious podcast by Violet Benson of @daddyissues_ fame talks about the complicated business of modern-day dating, and we can’t get enough.

Fake the Nation

Aptly described as “the comedy about politics without any of the politics about politics”, Fake the Nation is hosted by a stand-up comedian by the name of Negin Farsad, so you know you’re in for a treat. The insights shared by her funny, politically astute friends like Lizz Winstead and Dean Obeidallah are just the proverbial cherry on top.

Anna Faris Is Unqualified

Looking to build a community for everyone out there who doesn’t have a clue as to what they are doing, Anna Faris Is Unqualified is a goofy podcast by the impossibly charismatic Anna Faris. The episodes focus on the actress and her ‘unqualified’ guests from Hollywood giving relationship advice to listeners.

Best Friends with Nicole Byer and Sasheer Zamata

What happens when two comedian best friends come together to start a venture? You get an absolutely hilarious podcast like Best Friends featuring Nicole Byer and Sasheer Zamata. It covers just about anything that two best friends might converse about and, luckily for us, they also give advice on the friendship-based questions submitted by listeners.

Late Night Whenever

Leave it to the brilliant Michelle Buteau to host a gut-busting podcast, complete with a house band, celebrity guests, and topics such as colorism and waxing. While Late Night Whenever wrapped up production in 2018 – Buteau is now hosting the Adulting podcast with Jordan Carlos – we still recommend catching up on all that hilarity.

Why Won't You Date Me?

Nicole Byer is smart and funny – and has been single for years. Through her podcast Why Won’t You Date Me?, she is now on a quest to determine the reason behind her marital status. Join Byer as she invites comedians, friends, and even her exes to figure out what appears to be the biggest mystery of her life.

Pretty Basic

As the name describes, the podcast Pretty Basic is just that – basic but essential conversation between 20-somethings Alisha Marie and Remi Cruz, who happen to be best friends and discuss everything from banana bread and break-ups to tips on how to deal with anxiety. What we love about this fun and upbeat podcast is that it’s surprisingly empowering.
