girl listening to podcast

Here at Dear Media, we are allllllll about podcasts. They’re our favorite form of media for so many reasons. Listening to a podcast is like having your bestie with you wherever you go during your most boring chores, on the drive to work, hitting the gym, you name it! Your podcast besties can go with you and make whatever you’re doing a damn good time. 

Plus, they’re totally versatile. No matter what mood you’re in, there’s a podcast for it. There are so many genres and topics to choose from, whether you’re on a self-improvement kick, you’re working on your startup, or you just want something fun to pass the time.

As we enter our thirties, we become more relaxed, confident, and self-aware versions of ourselves. And, just like we change as we age, our tastes in podcasts change, too. So today, we want to share our roundup of the best podcasts ever for women in their 30s!

There’s just something that’s so much more settled about being in your 30s than being in your 20s, and your podcast rotation should reflect that.
