When I decided to get serious about my finances, podcasts were one of the first places I turned to for information. I love learning from podcasts since I can listen as I’m driving, cleaning, or out walking the dog.
Over the years, I’ve found myself drawn to financial podcasts specifically created for women. It’s no secret that women have very different financial goals and financial needs.
Luckily there’s no shortage today of amazing personal finance podcasts created by and for women. Here are a few of my favorites!
If podcasts aren’t your style, you can check out these lists too:
1. So Money
So Money is one of the OG female money podcasts and was founded by Farnoosh Torabi. Farnoosh got her start as a financial reporter and wrote her first personal finance book in 2008.
Farnoosh talks about issues that are important to women, such as in her book, When She Makes More, where she talks about female breadwinners.
Farnoosh started So Money in 2014 and, since then, has published over 1,000 episodes. Farnoosh does solo episodes where she answers your biggest money questions. She also interviews top authors and business owners about their financial journey and best money advice. She’s interviewed amazing women like Ariana Huffington, Gretchen Rubin, and Jen Sincero.

2. Money Confidential
Money Confidential is a podcast from Real Simple that’s hosted by the well-known personal finance writer Stefanie O’Connell Rodriquez.
Stefanie herself is known for her work discussing the unique issues women face in the workplace and personal finances. This follows the same trend and explores some of the aspects of personal finance that people struggle with the most, including saving, spending, earning, investing, and more.
In each episode, Stefanie starts by sharing an interview with a listener looking for advice on a particular topic. In the second part of the episode, Stefanie speaks with a financial expert who offers advice on that same topic.
Each episode of Money Confidential has tangible advice you can implement right away, while also acknowledging the role that emotions play in money decisions.

3. Money With Katie
Katie Gattie Tassin has long been one of my favorite women talking about money on the internet, so you can imagine how excited I was when she started her podcast.
Katie’s podcast, Money With Katie, is created for – as she refers to her audience – #RichGirls. In her podcast, she addresses topics that are important to women, including spending habits, smart investing, tax strategy, and more.
One of the things I love about Katie’s work is her transition from solely tactical advice to a broader look at the challenges facing certain demographics and some of the societal issues holding us back. Don’t worry, though – she still shares plenty of the tactical tips.

4. Financial Feminist
The Financial Femenist podcast is created by Tori Dunlap, the founder of the Her First $100K community. She went viral in the personal finance community for saving her first $100K in her early twenties and has made it her mission to help women do the same. On her podcast and other social platforms, she educates women on the subject of personal finance to help them smash the patriarchy.
On her podcast, Tori shares tactical advice on saving, investing, negotiating, and more. She also interviews experts about financial issues important to women and some of the societal difficulties women face in the workface (along with how to navigate them).
Tori also has a new book out with the same name as her podcast.

5. Clever Girls Know
The Clever Girls was one of the first finance blogs I really dove into when I decided to get serious about my finances. The Clever Girls founder Bola started the website after successfully saving $100,000 in just a few years and knowing that she had to teach other women how they could save money too.
The Clever Girls Know podcast covers all of the financial education and empowerment that women need to help them pay off debt, save money, start growing real wealth, and meet their big financial goals.

6. The Financial Confessions
Though you might not be familiar with the Financial Confessions podcast, you’re almost certainly familiar with the company that runs it — The Financial Diet.
Founder Chelsea Fagan started The Financial Diet as a personal blog back in 2014. Since then, it has grown into a finance website that publishes great content every day aimed at helping women talk more openly and honestly about money.
So it comes as no surprise that Chelsea’s podcast, The Financial Confessions, is all about getting honest about money. On the show, Chelsea sits down to talk to influencers, celebrities, and financial experts in various industries to talk about all things money. They talk about the financial secrets of different industries, how your background influences the way you approach money, and the financial habits they recommend.

7. Inspired Budget Podcast
I don’t remember when I first discussed Allison at Inspired Budget, but I’ve been following her for several years now. What first got my excited about her Instagram account was the real people’s budgets she shared. She literally shares a real person’s budget, as well as changes she recommends to help that person meet her goals.
In 2021 Allision started her own podcast, The Inspired Budget Podcast, which helps women live their best life and reach their financial goals. Allison shares short but meaningful episodes on a particular financial topic. What I love about her content is that every podcast episode has a takeaway. In other words, every episode allows you to walk away with at least one improvement you can make to your finances right away.

8. The Fairer Cents
Founders Kara and Tanja started The Fairer Cents podcast to talk about all things money as it relates to women. Kara and Tanja are both successful in their own right. Kara is the founder of Bravely, a community that provides financial empowerment for women. Tanja wrote the book Work Optional, where she talks about her and her husband’s journey to early retirement.
On the podcast, Kara and Tanja dive into some of the stickier issues around money. They aim to serve those that have been underserved by financial media in the past, and cover issues like the wage gap and exploring how money affects relationships (and vice versa).

9. Journey to Launch
Journey to Launch is a podcast hosted by Jamila, a Certified Financial Education Instructor who, along with her husband, is on her way to financial independence by the age of 40.
On her blog, Jamila shares the steps that she’s taken to save and invest well over $100K in just a couple of years. On the Journey to Launch podcast, Jamila teaches her audience how to set and create and create an actionable plan to go after their own goals.

10. Afford Anything
Afford Anything founder Paula Pant started getting serious about money in a desperate attempt to avoid spending the rest of her life working 9-5 behind a desk. She built successful side hustles and saved enough money to quit her job and travel.
Since then, Paula has built a successful real estate business and shares her business and financial expertise on her podcast. Paula talks about being intentional in the way you spend your money. After all, you can afford anything, but not everything.

The Money Girl podcast was started by Laura Adams in 2008. Like so many other finance bloggers and podcasters, Laura gained her expertise through her own personal finance journey of learning to pay off debt and get on a budget.
Since then, the show has gotten more than 40 million downloads and provides short and sweet personal finance tips to women. Laura’s podcast episodes are easily digestible, as many of them are just 15 minutes. Laura covers topics such as paying off debt, saving for retirement, and developing positive money habits.

HerMoney was founded by Jean Chatzky, a personal finance reporter. Like so many women, she came to the realization that the traditional money media just wasn’t addressing the unique needs of women, so she started a website and podcast to address those needs herself.
HerMoney is all about improving the relationships that women have with money and leveling the playing field for financial security.

Podcasts have been one of my favorite ways to consume content, especially when I was just getting started with my own personal finance journey.
We know that the money needs of women are so unique. And luckily, there are plenty of podcasts out there specifically designed to help women take control of their money and meet their financial goals.
