Call Your Girlfriend

According to cohosts and best friends Ann Friedman and Aminatou Sow, Call Your Girlfriend is "the podcast for long-distance besties everywhere."

Citizen Radio 

This listener-supported daily podcast brings you all the news, without the filter.

Queer Inquiries 

Queer Inquiries is exactly what it sounds like, which is exactly what we need sometimes: all queer stuff, all the time. On their site, creators of the podcast write, "Queer Inquiries is a podcast that tells the stories and broadcasts the voices of folks around the United States who identify as queer. During this pivotal moment in our culture when lesbians and gay men are increasingly being portrayed in popular culture, it is important that real queer experiences are a part of the dialogue." Queer Inquiries has something for everyone: sex, zines, and an upcoming femme-centric episode.
