Our 25 most recommended podcasts about all things midlife, menopause and beyond!
Looking for some new podcasts about menopause and midlife to listen to? Then you’re in the right place!
Women in their 40s and 50s can often feel very overwhelmed with the amount of responsibilities they have to juggle when it comes to family life, work and managing personal relationships. Throw into the mix our fluctuating hormones, and it’s no wonder so many of us often find ourselves feeling worn out and ‘below par,’ to say the least. So when you do manage to find some time for a breather, it’s important to try and make the most of it!
Self care and relaxation means different things to different people, be it a dog walk, a hot bath, a yoga session, or perhaps just sitting on the couch listening to music, reading a book or watching TV.
Podcasts are another fantastic way of relaxing whilst also providing education and/or entertainment too. When you find a good podcast that you can relate to, with great interviewers and inspiring guests, who perhaps are going through or have gone through similar situations to you, it can make you feel like you are far from alone.
That’s why we asked you for your recommendations for some of your favourite podcasts so that we could share them with all of our community in one place.

Katie is the CEO and founder of The Latte Lounge which she created after suffering with undiagnosed perimenopausal symptoms for many years, which she struggled to find any relevant support for, both on and offline.
Every day Katie and the team hear from, and help, hundreds of women who come to The Latte Lounge for support, information and signposting for all their (and their families) health and wellbeing issues.
Her passion and commitment to supporting and challenging women's health inequalities stems from a desire to carry the baton of her fathers work in the field of breast cancer, and in memory of his mother (her grandmother) who tragically lost her life at a very young age to this cruel disease.
Previously Katie worked in PR, marketing, fundraising and event organising for a variety of charities, helping children and adults with learning disabilities, seriously ill children and teenagers in hospital, as well as supporting adults with mental health problems.
