Podcasts For Fashion Bloggers

Dubbed “the fashion show for fashion people”, American Fashion Podcast dives deep into the issues surrounding the fashion and garment industry.

American couturier Ralph Rucci, Project Runway’s Tim Gunn and GQ’s Jim Moore have all been interviewed in episodes. The podcast has been going strong since 2014 – and doesn’t appear to go anywhere any time soon.

Oh Boy by Man Repeller

Podcasts For Fashion Bloggers

If you don’t know, now you know: Leandra Medine’s Man Repeller has its very own podcast.

Oh Boy launched in 2015 and is hosted by filmmaker Jay Buim (who interviews Medine for the debut episode). Unfortunately, a new episode hasn’t been uploaded since March 2017 – but that doesn’t mean it’s a write-off. Oh Boy features interviews with prominent women in the arts, tech and fashion industries – like Alexa Chung, Garance Dore and Gloria Steinam, to name a few.

Why Should You Be Listening?

In true Man Repeller-style the interviews are quite humorous (in that Man Repeller kind of way). Buim’s questions are well thought out; his soothing voice draws the podcast’s guests out of their respective shells. And while you might be familiar with their high-flying careers, Buim gives these women a platform to openly discuss their backgrounds. He also does an exceptional job of getting his interviewees to reveal quirky anecdotes about their childhoods. Oh Boy is definitely more interesting than inspirational, but if you’re into autobiographies of famous people, you’ll love this podcast.

Listen to It While…

…You’re in the tub, by the beach or just relaxing. It’s an easy listen and you’ll learn interesting facts about your industry idols.

Average Time of an Episode: 45 minutes.

Becoming Fearless

Podcasts For Fashion Bloggers

Becoming Fearless is all about inspiring and empowering women.

It’s host, Annie Spano (also the founder of Style Collective), aims to share the spirits of leadership, authenticity, self-development and hard work with her listeners in each episode. And while Becoming Fearless is largely geared towards female entrepreneurs in creative fields, there are some excellent takeaway messages that anyone can benefit from – fashion blogger or not.

Why should you be listening?

Spano is extremely passionate about inspiring other women; it’s more than a little evident on Becoming Fearless. She is also an excellent speaker and comes across as eloquent, yet approachable, in her episodes. Tune in for your daily dose of entrepreneurial motivation, but also take a few notes while you’re at it. Consider she’s only been podcasting for a few months now, you’d think Spano is an old pro.

Listen to it when…

After a hard week, long day or if you’re feeling discouraged. Spano knows how to keep her listener’s encouraged in pursuing their career and blogging-related goals. #girlboss
