Ever felt like you should be better at feminism? Join comedian Deborah Frances-White and her guests for this comedy podcast, recorded in front of a live audience. Each week they discuss topics "all 21 first century feminists agree on" while confessing their insecurities, hypocrisies and fears that underlie their lofty principles. Deborah Frances-White is the 2016 Writers' Guild Award Winner for Best Radio Comedy for her hit BBC Radio 4 series Deborah Frances-White Rolls the Dice. She is an Edinburgh Fringe regular, a screenwriter and is in huge demand for her corporate seminars.
Find out what happens when women break the rules - those unwritten but all too real bullsh*t expectations of how we should live our lives. Cristen Conger and Caroline Ervin (formerly Stuff Mom Never Told You) tackle questions through their trademark obsessive research, stories from rule-breakin’ ladies and a solid dose of delightful feminist rage.
Welcome to Witch, Please, a fortnightly podcast in which two lady scholars reread the entire Harry Potter series, rewatch all the movies, and discuss them for their own amusement. You can listen too.

Yes this Harry Potter podcast belongs on this list - this is a very entertaining crash course in intersectional feminism. Along with spells, pedagogy and unreliable narrators, of course.

Explore some favorite shows or movies through a female and feminist perspective. Learn about new books or ideas that succeed in realistically portraying women. Find out what was right and what was so wrong about Friends. Hear about some of our favorite ladies, important historical moments, and lady anthems. We take the subject very seriously and ourselves not at all. Hosted by two college faculty members, Misty Wilson-Mehrtens and Allegra Davis Hanna.

Bitch Media is a feminist response to pop culture, home to whip-smart writers, artists, and activists who analyze popular media with an eye on gender, race, class, and sexuality. A new Bitch podcast comes out every Thursday: Popaganda is a 45-minute in-depth exploration of themes ranging from stand-up comedy to sex work and Backtalk is our quick, fun conversation about the week in pop culture.
Burst Your Bubble is a podcast that looks at racism, sexism, homophobia, and all of the other -isms and -phobias within our society through pop culture. From music and movies to comic books and games, hatred, bigotry, and ignorance seep into our everyday lives. What is important is to dissect it and discuss it, and not just accept it as something we cannot process or change. New episodes will be released the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month.

A live comedy podcast by comedians Sofie Hagen and Jodie Mitchell, in which they explore identity in order to try and find out who they are - through the medium of dinosaurs. Hilarious, highly addictive and heavily dinosaur-based. SOFIE HAGEN is a stand-up comedian, author and host of 'Made of Human Podcast' and former co-host and co-creator of 'The Guilty Feminist' and a fat activist. JODIE MITCHELL is a stand-up comedian, improviser and a drag king in the drag king troupe Pecs. She is part of the radical and queer stand-up comedy collective The Lol Word.

The Tales of Sage and Savant is a monthly audio-drama podcast where Dr Petronella Sage strives to understand the power of Transmigration–the ability to transport her conscious mind through time and space into the bodies of dead people. With her friend, Professor Erasmus Savant, Sage explores past, present, and future, in a wild journey to prove Death is no barrier to Science.

Had to include one fiction podcast on this list. Sage and Savant is the story of a brilliant scientist who discovers time travel. It cleverly challenges listener expectations through both the protagonist and the storyline and explores what happens when the mad scientist is a woman.
