7 podcasts for single women who need to laugh about dating
Podcasts are all the rage right now, and we’re totally on board with this trend. Whether the hosts are comedians, minor (or major) celebs, or just a couple of BFFs, women’s podcasts can be so damn relatable. Through juicy interviews, personal anecdotes, and heartfelt conversations, the hosts can grow to feel like your best friends as they talk to you via headphones every week. Luckily, for you single ladies out there, there is a plethora of podcasts hosted by women who are badass, lovable, and relatable and understand the struggles that go along with dating and relationships.
Whether you’re content with your single status or not, it’s no secret that it can sometimes feel lonely when you’re flying solo. However, there are tons of women podcast hosts who are single and experiencing the same things as you. In these relatable podcasts, women tell honest stories about being single, spill the tea on their sex lives, and above all, build communities of women. Some podcasts are hilarious, others are informative (ahem, sex tips), but all of them are just damn entertaining. Below are seven podcasts that celebrate your single status that you should start listening during your next commute.
The best 7 podcasts for single women
1Scrubbing In with Becca Tilley and Tanya Rad
Becca Tilley and Tanya Rad are best friends who started Scrubbing In to talk about their favorite show, Grey’s Anatomy (hence the scrubs). However, the now two-time People’s Choice Award-winning podcast quickly blossomed into something more. Now, Tilley and Rad chat about everything in their personal lives from getting Brazilian waxes to peeing in water bottles on road trips to their latest adventures in dating. They also interview celebrity guests and hone in on the deep stuff, aka relationships with partners and ourselves.
The duo also hosts “Manels,” where they invite a panel of men in all different stages of relationships—single, dating, and married—and ask them the questions that every single girl wants to know. Above all, Scrubbing In encourages you to be the modern woman you are—you’ll end each episode feeling empowered to take on the world, wanting to call your bestie to catch up.
2Guys We F****d
This podcast is seriously hilarious. Hosted by NYC-based comedians Corrine Fisher and Krystyna Hutchinson, Guys We Fucked began as a podcast about exactly what it sounds like—the hosts interviewed men they’ve slept with and talked about the experience. Now, Guys We Fucked has turned into a place for overall candid conversations, whether it’s about sex or taboo topics. Self-declared as the “anti-slut shaming podcast,” Guys We Fucked is perfect to listen to when you’re in the mood to embrace your single status and laugh your ass off.
3This Is Why You’re Single
If you’re in need of some tough love, This Is Why You’re Single is the podcast for you. Hosted by comedians Laura Lane and Angela Spera, This Is Why You’re Single is a book, podcast, and sketch show that dives into common (and hilarious) dating misadventures. Lane and Spera recount dating-fails and don’t sugar-coat things, telling you exactly why you aren’t finding that person. They’re like the sarcastic older sisters you need to offer advice on things you have yet to experience—or already did wrong.
4Girls Gotta Eat
Another killer duo, Rayna Greenberg and Ashley Hesseltine are comedic gold alone and together. The friends discuss everything to do with sex, dating, and relationships, addressing questions, like Why do guys just want to sleep with you once they stalked your Instagram? Should you ditch the apps and meet people in the wild? How do you get over a breakup when you feel like you’re gonna die? Girls Gotta Eat is a modern take on dating from two kick-ass ladies who you’ll wish were your best friends.
5Single, Swipe, Repeat
Single, Swipe, Repeat is a podcast created by Tinder and Cosmopolitan to share dating stories from all over the country. If you just moved to a new city and are totally lost in the dating pool, Single, Swipe, Repeat is here to help you learn how to swim. Every week, Cosmo‘s sex and relationships director, Faye Brennan, teams up with a celeb to break down the dating scene, city by city. If you’re curious what dating in Las Vegas or small town America is actually like, look no further.
6Why Won’t You Date Me?
Hosted by comedian and host of Nailed It! on Netflix, Nicole Byer has been single for decades, and she wants to know why. Every week, Byer and a different guest try to nail down why she’s single, which turns into funny and wise conversations about relationships in general. You might walk away with a new understanding of why you’re single, or maybe a renewed sense of contentment that you are.
7We Met At Acme
Lindsey Metselaar is a food blogger and millennial dating in New York City. Her podcast dives into not only the NYC dating scene, but also her generation’s dating tendencies in general. Some episode titles include, “Men Sleep With You On The First Date Because They’re Insecure,” “Living With A Partner For the First Time,” and “PTSD From Exes.” Metselaar keeps it real, and serves genuinely useful advice.
