If you’re already a fan of Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso, then you’re going to love this boss lady’s podcast. #girlboss Radio is an extension of her famous New York Times best-selling book,  #GIRLBOSS, where she chitchats with fellow entrepreneurial women about their roles, life, and how they got to where they are now. All in all, it’s a rad podcast that helps humanize the world of being a girlboss  — with a little humor in-between.

If you love our ‘Boss Babe’ series, then you’re probably familiar with this podcast. Lady Lovin’ is about three girlfriends (Jilly Hendrix, Greta Titelman, and Lo Bosworth) who talk about everything and anything related to women, from relationships to careers to health and wellness. With a little bit of humor and a whole lotta lovin’, they want to inspire other women to love the skin they’re in — and we’re totally on board. Make sure to tune in every Monday to get your weekly dose of female empowerment.

Anna Faris Is Unqualified is the perfect podcast for when you need a little laughter and advice in your life. This actress invites her famous friends over (think Chris Evans, Olivia Munn, and her husband, Chris Pratt, too) to discuss in-depth topics while making jokes in-between. While the first part of her podcast shows a little love towards her guests, the second half pays tribute to her readers by giving her “unqualified” relationship advice to her call-in listeners’ issues. Faris is sweet, makes you feel comfortable and knows how to make you laugh. All in all, this podcast is a 10/10 in our books.
