10 Best Menopause Podcasts in 2023

In this blog I’m going to break down what, in my humble opinion, are the 10 Best Menopause Podcasts in 2023.

I am obsessed with podcasts! I love them! Really, I just can’t get enough. I consume them in a frenzy on my dog walks, as I run errands, when I’m cleaning the house, while I’m in the bath. Sometimes I even make an excuse to drive out of town, just so I can set aside a few hours alone with my podcasts.

What I love about podcasts is that I can consume a huge amount of information and multi-task at the same time. It’s a great way for me to get smarter and expand my mind. I love the intimate conversations and life advice. Plus, listening to candid conversations with people who’ve lived incredible lives, done incredible things and are living their lives to the fullest… That’s just  really inspiring.

Right now, my current obsession are podcasts about menopause, mindset, and women’s health. And I’ve also started consuming AI podcasts because I’m fascinated and freaked out about how AI is changing our lives.

So, today I’m going to share with you what I consider to be the 10 Best Menopause Podcasts in 2023.

1. The Dr Louise Newson Podcast

One of the best podcasts for women looking for science-based, medical insights into menopause.

Sometimes controversial. Always educational. The Dr Louise Newson podcast helps women understand their menopause transition with an unbiased, evidence-based, holistic approach.

As a world leading menopause specialist, Dr Newson understands that every woman‘s journey of menopause is different. I absolutely love this interview style podcast. Listening as Dr Newson and her expert guests take these incredible deep dives into menopause is fascinating. Plus they explain and explore symptoms and solutions in a technical, yet super easy-to-understand way.

If you listen to this podcasts, I think you’ll find that Dr Newson is inspiring us all to be the heroes of our own health journeys.

2. The Happy Menopause

One of the best podcasts for women looking to figure out this thing called menopause.

In this podcast, award-winning nutritionist and author Jackie Lynch explores how diet and lifestyle can help us take control of our menopause symptoms. She covers everything menopause, from managing anxiety, hot flashes and weight gain, to finding your passion, challenging stereotypes and preparing for your doctor’s appointments.

What I love about this podcast is that Jackie manages to do a deep dive into hot topics on women’s health in nice short episodes. They’re only 20-40 minutes long. Which is the perfect length to consume on my morning walk.

One of the best podcasts for women who are looking for smart, practical advice to use in their everyday life.

3. High Performance Health

Listen on apple podcasts to one of the best podcasts for women going through menopause.

Although not explicitly a menopause podcast, The High-Performance Health Podcast focuses on helping women to optimize their body, mind and lifestyle. Host, Angela Foster, is herself a middle aged woman. Sso I find that her topics and perspective are always relatable and I can easily incorporate the advice to improve my menopausal life.

In her super smart way, Angela covers a huge array of topics from metabolic flexibility to mindset, skincare, breathwork and burnout.

I really love the way she approaches her interviews. Conversations with guests always feel so natural and familiar. And I always walk away with really actionable advice that works in my life.

4. Better!

One of the best podcasts on apple podcasts for women looking to explore questions about menopause and women's health.

This is a podcast I turn to when I want to do a really deep dive. And when I have lots of brain power and focus available. Because Dr Stephanie Estima loves to get really, really technical. She aims to get to the root of the science.

Better! is a “show is for high performing women who want to have BETTER bodies, BETTER minds, BETTER relationships, BETTER sex, and BETTER families.”  In her interviews with world-class scientists, medical doctors, coaches and experts, Dr Stephanie takes complex science about women’s health and simplifies it so it’s easy to understand. Plus she helps us find easy to integrate solutions into our daily life.

So if you want really love going deep and technical and want to understand the science behind your symptoms and solutions, tune into Dr Stephanie and her geeky magic.

5. Hello, Hot Flash

one of the best podcasts for black women entrepreneurs looking to understand menopause

Hello, Hot Flash is all about helping mid-life women change the way they think about themselves, talk to themselves, and honor themselves. In this podcast, Stephanie Shaw explores topics ranging from mental health, to self care, women’s issues, self love, setting boundaries and even social justice for women.

Why I listen to this podcast is Stephanie’s smart, honest approach to women’s health. Also, she interviews incredible guests with expert advice that always inspires me to live my best menopausal life.

Stephanie also brings a black women’s perspective to the topic of menopause. This is exciting and important because black women tend to experience menopause at an earlier age and with intense symptoms like hot flashes, sleep disturbances.

6. The Simplicity Sessions

Jenn Pike explores women, our health and hormones from a holistic perspective.

This was the first menopause podcast I ever listened to. It was recommended to me by a friend and in just one episode, I was hooked.

Can self care really be the way forward through menopause? With new episodes weekly, Jenn Pike takes an holistic approach to supporting women in perimenopause and beyond.

With her simple advice, hacks and delicious recipes, she’s helps me understand how to optimize my hormones. And I now have so many easy-to-implement tools in my toolbox, that I really feel like I’m living with more simplicity and ease.

7. Hello Menopause!

One of the best podcasts with all the answers your looking for to help you navigate menopause.

This is a relatively new podcast. Why I started listening was that I loved Christine Maginnis and Robin Gelfenbien’ description of their podcast. “They explore the wide spectrum of perimenopause symptoms, the benefits of aging, and the misconceptions about the most mysterious non-mystery on Earth – menopause.”

Ha! The most mysterious non-mystery on Earth. How true is that?

And the magic of this podcast is that each episode features real menopause stories from real people. Whether they’re talking about working women struggling through menopause, or talking with celebrity guests and authors about their menopause books, each episode will educate, entertain and leave you feeling inspired.

8. Essentially You

One of the really great podcasts that gives listeners a naturopathic approach to menopause.

In her podcast, Essentially You, Dr. Mariza Snyder takes a holistic approach to hormones and health. Sometimes she’s a little woo-woo for me. Like letting her new car off-gas for weeks before driving it? Now that’s just crazy!

But woo-woo aside, each episode offers an interesting perspective on navigating the hormone journey. She covers topics like getting enough sleep, wearing a CGM to track blood sugar and combatting stress. And while I definitely don’t implement all of her advice (I love me some new car smell!), I do find a little gem and inspiration in every episode.

9. WTF – Wot The Fog

It's like talking to your best friend about all things midlife.

Wot The Fog – “Two friends. One menopause. A thousand challenges. A million laughs.” LouLou and Michelle describe their show the best. It’s a podcast full of “honest, open and often ridiculous conversations about all things midlife.” Take a listen if you’re looking for something light and lively, honest and pure.

While Michelle and LouLou may not be thought leaders, they’re super funny and extremely listenable. It’s like being a fly on the wall as two best friends talk about families and surviving mid-life.

I love spending a little time with these Brits. They’re my daily dose of honest conversations, personal life stories and lots of laughter.

10. Maneuvering Obstacles Through Menopause

One of the great podcasts available for women looking to support their menopause through exercise and diet.

In this podcast, bad ass Shelly Burns, takes a no-nonsense, honest approach to answer the tough questions that women in perimenopause need answers to.

Shelly is a chiropractor and CrossFit gym owner. So subjects like low libido, mood swings, weight gain, and sleep issues are approached with a practical, science-based perspective.

Her personal magic is her direct and forthright approach. What’s more, I find her discussions interesting, informative and eye opening.

She hasn’t posted any new episodes this year, but it’s worth going back through her archive. But fingers crossed she has some new shows coming soon.

An exciting announcement

There’s soon to be a new podcast in town. This Is Perimenopause is launching our very own women’s podcast really soon. And just like our blogs, it’s soon to be your number one favourite podcast for everything women, menopause and midlife.

Until then… Happy listening.

Coming soon. A new podcast for women listeners. Soon, you can listen to these co founders and their life changing conversation with special guests.
