Inspiring podcasts from female entrepreneurs
Podcasts are like the modern book on tape, having been reinvented over the last couple of years into a bit of a marketing empire onto themselves. So while most people were celebrating World Book Day, we were sat here wondering when Podcast Day is. It’s 30 September in case you were wondering – everything really does have a holiday. It also seems everyone has a podcast these days, but which ones are the best of the best?
In celebration of International Women’s Day, Women’s History Month, Luku’s first birthday and women in general, we share the female entrepreneur podcasters that inspire us. We hope they’ll inspire you too.
