4 Women-Hosted Podcasts

Happy International Women’s Day! Also, this month is #trypod month. That means we’re encouraging you to recommend your favorite podcast to a friend. If they don’t know how to access podcasts, offer to show them.

To celebrate both, we’re recommending some of our favorite podcasts hosted by women.   

The Gateway Tree

In the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, where I grew up, needle-leafed evergreens grew so thick they became invisible, in the way that abundant things do. In my memory, they grow in walls along highways, homogeneous, never-ending. Roads curved or straightened and either way you’d never see ahead or over, because of the pines. You couldn’t catch a view. The ground, wherever I played—at school, at home, in the front yard, in the backyard, by the creek—lay thick with red dry needles. The branches started twenty feet above my head, too high to climb.

You’ve Asked Us To Tell More Stories

One of the greatest compliments our show has received is listener requests for more episodes. So now, instead of coming to you just once a month, we’re going to release episodes every few weeks. At the very end of every episode, we’ll let you know when to expect the next one. Because we’re telling more stories, you’ll be hearing a new voice: our producer Erin Jones is stepping in as fill-in host. (You’ve already met her as the storyteller in episode 9, and she’s hosting our newest episode.)
