If you're a hiker, angler, climber, or hunter looking for a good listen on the go, here's where to find the best podcasts for outdoor enthusiasts.
With every novice picking up a mic and claiming to be an expert, it's tough to sift through all the wannabe podcasts and find one that's truly informative, interesting, and worth your time. But these five picks are some of the best outdoor podcasts out there for women who love the wild.
Hosted by Gale Straub, this podcast features the stories of women who've spent time in the natural world and showcases how these outdoor experiences relate to everything from conservation to mental health to chronic illness to entrepreneurship to activism. New episodes are available twice a month.
The Tough Girl Podcast
This thought-provoking podcast chronicles the stories of women overcoming incredible challenges in the outdoors, from hiking the Appalachian Trail to blowing sailing records out of the water. If you want to be inspired to step out of your comfort zone and see what you can accomplish, The Tough Girl Podcast is for you. New podcast episodes are available several times a month.
While dedicated women's outdoor adventure podcasts are great, content doesn't need to be exclusively tailored to ladies for it to be beneficial. The Outside Podcast from Outside Magazine is a favorite of men and women alike, tackling topics such as the science behind worrisome wildlife, wellness in the wild, and personal stories of those who consider the backcountry home.
The Dirtbag Diaries
Another great outdoor podcast not limited to content for women in The Dirtbag Diaries. They've been churning out entertaining adventure stories since 2007 and have garnered quite a following among the backpacking, mountain biking, and skiing crowds.
Hosted by fly angler, hunter, and all-around outdoorswoman April Vokey, Anchored has a loyal following of both men and women - and for good reason. Vokey chats with some of the most influential and interesting individuals in the outdoor industry to get the behind-the-scenes details of some of their most incredible adventures.
