10 Great Podcasts with Mom in Mind

Looking for some new recipes? or for a laugh at the end of the day?  There are so many Podcasts now available for Moms that can really help you relax and unwind.  There is something for everyone!

Why Do Moms Love Podcasts?

As a Mom we are constantly looking for new ways of doing things with our kids or tips to get through an important milestone in their life.  I used to go to books to find out everything that I needed to know, but isn’t it great that we can just turn up the volume and go about our day while getting that information over our computers or phones and most of them are Free.  It is a little more personalized too.  You can find a Podcast on almost any topic that you are looking for in the world of Parenting and even when you need a good laugh or two there are Podcasts just for that too!

Informational Podcasts for Mom

Tsh from the blog, Simple Mom, teaches and shows other moms and parents how to stay organized and live simply through her Simple Mom Podcast.  She talks with other Moms and discusses the best ways to get organized, plan parties and so much more that being a mom entails.


The Mom Podcast, started in 2010, hosted by Nancy an award winning author, Shelley a Southern Mom of twins and Stacy a Mom of Nine.  They each definitely have a unique perspective on parenting and they discuss a whole range of parenting topics bringing in experts at times.


Hosted by Cheryl, a mother of eight, The Mighty Mommy Podcast is a little different in that the podcast is done in only five minutes, but if you are a mom sometimes that is all you have time for!  However, that five minutes is chock full of information on many different parenting topics, that you will learn so much even in that small amount of time.

The Power of Moms Podcast really empowers you as a Mom, giving you relateable advice and giving you the confidence you need to get through even the more challenging parenting moments.  April hosts this podcast with a variety of different guest hosts.


Entertaining and Humorous

Heather and Kate can make any parenting topic entertainment worthy.  Naptime Radio will help you kick back and relax and as a Mom you are going to definitely relate to their informational but entertaining broadcasts.  You feel like your sitting around with your friends drinking coffee and talking about important topics that all of you are going through everyday.

Hosted by Cristen and Caroline and part of the How Stuff Works Network, The Stuff Mom Never Told You Podcast explores topics that we have all wondered about but never thought to ask about with a humorous twist.  Have you ever wondered who started Pinterest? or about hormones and the “friendzone”.  This podcast explores so many interesting topics that moms will definitely enjoy learning about.

Manic Mommies began in 2005 and is hosted by Kristin and Erin, two working Moms.  They have celebrity guest interviews and expert guests, as well, including a pediatrician and a parenting expert.  Even though the podcast focuses on two working Moms it can definitely be appreciated by all Moms, because that discuss topics that most moms will relate to.

Cooking and Crafts

Janice and Liz are Dietitians, Moms, and cookbook authors.  They get how it is to make sure everyone is happy at the dinner table and how there is just not enough time in the day.  Cooking with the Moms shares recipes and simple cooking tips that are sure to get your inner cook to come out and serve up some healthful, wonderful family meals.

Have fun cooking with your kids!  In the Two Kids Cooking Podcast, Sophia, Alex and their Mom share their cooking experiences with you.  This podcast is a little different in that most come with a video too.  Cooking is a great way to spend time with your children and this podcast shares great and healthful recipes that are fun to make with your kids.

Melista is teacher that has a background in Early Childhood Play.  Raising Playful Tots focuses on using play to educate our kids.  In her podcast, Melitsa and her guest hosts, share creative ideas and activities to do with your children and you also get a great background and insight into educating kids.

Parenting Information in the Digital Age

Can you believe how amazing it is that you can just listen to a Podcast and learn everything there is to know about any topic imaginable.  It is unbelievable how much technology has impacted even the parenting realm.  I love that I can listen at any time that I want, even if I am in the thick of changing a diaper and cleaning the kitchen.  Remember you do not need an Apple device to listen to Podcasts.  Most have a website that you can visit to find out a different way to listen.   They are just like a radio show that you can listen to whenever you get the chance!

  1. Great post!! It’s nice to know who some of the top mom blogger podcasters are and what their podcasts are about.

  2. I’ll have to check these out. Maybe I’ll head over to Simple Mom first since I follow her on FB. Thanks for sharing some great finds! :)

  3. I love the Meal Makeover Moms podcast – they sound like such fun and make healthy eating seem achievable, even with a “real” family. I can’t wait to try a few of these other podcasts – especially the Mighty Mommy podcast since it’s only about 5 minutes!

  4. Thank you for including me. I’m honored and found a few new ones too. Always good thing :)

  5. Oh wow! I didn’t realize there were so many mom topic podcasts out there. I think I’ll try the Two Kids Cooking one first. I love to cook and my little guy always wants to help so this should be fun!

  6. I listen to a few of these already and think they’re great choices, but one more favorite wasn’t listed: Happiness Matters @ http://greatergood.berkeley.edu/gg_live/happiness_matters_podcast
    It’s not just for moms, really anyone who cares for kids, but all of their tips, based on scientific research, really resonate with my parenting philosophy. And it’s another nice quick one, about 12 min per weekly episode.
