One of the reasons I created OWV is to connect women and hear about various single mother experiences. Nothing makes me happier than listening to an embarrassing story, laughing at a bad date, or crying alongside someone as they share their most profound, scariest memories. I love all of the happy and fantastic stories, too, obviously, which is why podcasts appeal to so many people with varying interests, and listenership continues to rise daily. According to Edison Research, mothers like podcasts because it gives them the ability to multitask. All you have to do is pop in some headphones, pick your favorite podcast, and get down to the dishes and laundry and the million other things on your to-do list you’re going to absolutely crush. Below, I’ve rounded up ten podcasts hosted or co-hosted by celebrity single mothers. Whether you need a laugh, cry, inspiration, or a bit of a mind fantasy, these women provide it all.
Anna Faris brings her hilarious self to listeners every Monday in an attempt to feed her “curiosity and desire to connect.” Each week, Faris invites fellow celebrities to discuss their love lives and offers relationship advice to a listener. Anna is mother to son Jack, whom she co-parents with Chris Pratt. Unqualified is also the name of Anna’s memoir.
Former The Office receptionist Jenna Fischer (AKA Pam) and accountant Angela Kinsey (AKA Angela) teamed up to bring us just what the world needs in 2020, more of The Office. Each week, the former co-workers offer insider insight into an episode of The Office. Angela has daughter Isabel from her first marriage to Warren Lieberstein.
Siblings Kate and Oliver Hudson explore familial relationships with other sibling guests each week. The siblings will make you really love your brother or sister. Kate is mom to Ryder Robinson, who she shares with ex-husband Chris Robinson, and Bingham Hawn Bellamy, who she had with Matt Bellamy. The mother-of-three also has daughter Rani Rose Hudson Fujikawa with partner Danny Fujikawa.
You may remember Catt Sadler from her years as a host on E!. The single mother of two has been honest about why she walked away from her dream job and decided to pursue other efforts. In her podcast, NAKED, Catt speaks to a new woman every Thursday celebrating her guest’s accomplishments and journey to where they are. Sadler co-parents sons Austin and Arion with her ex-husband Kyle Boyd.
Demi Moore brings you the erotic podcast you never knew you needed. Moore plays Diana, a woman who runs a website where women submit their fantasies. “Young people are learning about sex through traditional porn, which, unfortunately, is all about servicing,” Moore shared with Vogue, “There’s nothing that even resembles the reality of what a woman experiences or desires.” Dirty Diana will change that. Moore has daughters Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah, who she famously co-parents with Bruce Willis.
You may remember Jillian Michaels from her time on The Biggest Loser. Today, she dedicates herself not only to the show but to help people transform their lifestyles. Jillian’s podcast is rated #1 in the U.S. Top Health Podcasts and focuses on finding health and happiness in all areas of your life, not just the gym. Single mom to Lukensia and Phoenix, Michaels co-parents with former partner Heidi Rhoades.
The weekly podcast is hosted by the newest member of The Real Housewife of Beverly Hills, Garcelle Beauvais. Each Thursday, Beauvais alternates between celebrities and real people to discuss dating, relationships, and sex. There is no topic off-limits for the mother of three. She has son Oliver from her first marriage to Daniel Saunders and twin sons, Jax and Jaid, with ex-husband Mike Nilon.
Not that we ever expect the former Beverly Hills Housewife to be filtered, but her podcast is everything you’d expect and then some. Brandi Glanville chats with other Hollywood celebrities and discusses all things pop culture. You can also get all your Bravo gossip while getting a hearty laugh. Brandi co-parents sons Jake and Mason with ex-husband Eddie Cibrian.
Next Question with Katie Couric
Katie Couric happens to be one of my favorite commenters on Instagram. She is hilarious and honest, and you get the same thing in her podcast, Next Question. Every Thursday, Katie speaks to someone influential in news, pop culture, or politics. Katie is a single mom to daughters Elinor and Caroline, whom she had with her first husband, Jay Monahan.

The Goop Podcast – Gwyneth Paltrow co-hosts this podcast with her CCO, Elise Loehnren. Get your dose of spirituality and new things to try. The Goop co-workers invite industry disruptors to speak with them about anything and everything in an attempt to shift “old paradigms and start new conversations.” Gwyneth co-parents daughter Apple and son Moses who she shares with ex-husband Chris Martin.
