Girlfriendology was a podcast that was hosted by Debba Haupert and was started in 2006. She interviewed over 150 amazing women on her show while it was active. Unfortunately, she ran out of time to invest in the podcast, and took a break for a while. This happens to a lot of podcasters.
Now, in 2016, Debba Haupert is bringing the Girlfirendology podcast back. She is bringing back over 150 episodes that were recorded in 2011 – 2013. The first “Girlfriendology Classics” episode aired January 5, 2016, and features a 2012 interview with Teresa Scanlan (who was crowned Miss America on January 15, 2011).
Part of the reason why Girlfriendology has returned is due to the notion that podcasting is “back” in 2016. It is a new year, and a new opportunity to share what is going on in the world of women’s podcasting. Debba Haupert is asking people to recommend podcasts that are done by women – for women. You can add your suggestion as a comment on her blog. She is putting together a (yet to be completed) top ten list.
As of the time I am writing this, Debba Haupert has added a list of 7 podcasts for women. The list is unfinished and will eventually grow into a “top ten”. A few of the podcasts that have made the list include The Happiness Project (hosted by Gretchen Rubin) and Women of the Hour (hosted by Lena Dunham). What podcasts for women would you recommend? Let Debba Haupert know and your suggestion could help fill out the “top ten” list.
