Podcast Love: Call Your Girlfriend

My roommate and dear friend Anne told me about Call Your Girlfriend – a “podcast for long distance besties everywhere” and I cannot get enough of it.

Call Your Girlfriend

In their own words:

Call Your Girlfriend is a podcast for all the long-distance besties out there, brought to you by Gina DelvacAnn Friedman and Aminatou Sow. Every other week, tune in as we discuss Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the beauty of caftans, menstruation news, Kimye, Pitbull, Hillary Rodham Clinton, casual racism, emoji, straight people, California, rom-coms, Lorde lipstick, and so much more.

First of all, I’m borderline obsessed with Robyn. And their theme track is the best.

Second, I have so many long distance besties. We have a lot of FaceTime, phone calls, group texts, and IRL trips to sustain my lady friendships and thus, I love the concept they’re driving toward.

Third, Ann (who is also from Iowa, what, what) and Amina are brilliant, hilarious, and their cadence and dialogue is very relatable. Awkwardly, I feel like I could see us sitting together over a big (generous pour) of wine, and conversing about all the topics and agenda items they cover. Whether it’s depth-filled topics that are newsworthy, hilarious rants, or just straight “menstruation news” as they call it – I’m always learning something and I usually find I’m laughing out loud.

They keep it real, and that’s really more of what I want in my life. So go ahead, subscribe on iTunes and scope them out.
