The Best All Around Homemaking Podcasts

I am a self confessed podcast junkie. You should know that. So when I say I have searched high and low for the best podcasts, it’s the truth.

If I’m in the kitchen (and that’s where I spend a bulk of my time), then I have a podcast playing. Everything from homemaking and homesteading to history and entrepreneurial.

I have tried to narrow down my favorites into categories, but like I said above, most of these podcasts reach many categories. You are sure to get a well rounded, informative, and sometimes humorous collection of podcasts to check out. I hope you love them!

My All Time Favorite Podcasts

  1. The Homemaker’s Club Podcast – This podcast, hosted by Ashley Cravens, feels like a warm cup of coffee at the kitchen table with your mom friends. Ashley is the owner and creator of The Homemaker’s Club website and the wildly popular Instagram page, wearethehomemakers.
  2. Simple Farmhouse LifeLisa Bass hosts this podcast full of amazing interviews with other moms and wives who are entrepreneurs, homemakers, homesteaders, homeschoolers, experts in decor, experts in time management, and so much more.

  3. M is for Mama Podcast – The M is for Mama podcast is based on the book by the same name, written by Abbie Halberstadt. (You can find the book and my review of it here.) Abbie provides practical tips, humor, and encouragement in a way that is grounded and relatable. Her zest for life and fire for the Lord shine through in everything she does.

One of the best decisions we ever made was to read aloud as a family. You do not have to be a homeschooler to benefit from this podcast.

  • Fig & Farm at Home – I love Danielle Watson’s heart for inspiring real women with real homes. We’ve all been there. Scrolling through Pinterest, compiling our albums of decor and some day renovations. Pouring over the pages of Country Living or American Farmhouse Style full of admiration (sometimes envy) over the gorgeous spaces contained in those magazines. (They’re two of my favorites!)

Encouragement and practical advice are provided in a real way, from real moms. This is the type of podcast that feels like a conversation. Not from experts but from someone who will say, “I’ve been there.” Perfect for new moms and seasoned moms alike.
  • Minimalist Moms Podcast – I will be honest, I am not a minimalist. I see so much merit in it. And I do like minimalism in some aspects of my life such as processes and organization. But I typically joke that I am a maximalist. However this podcast, hosted by Diane Boden, covers so much ground on simplifying and intentionality. I learn something every time I listen. Do I love simple living? Yes. Do I love stuff? Also, yes. But the Minimalist Mom’s Podcast provides so many practical tips on keeping perspective that I find I can marry the two in a way that works for me. Definitely worth a listen even if you aren’t a minimalist.
  • Homemaker Chic – Homemaker Chic is the brainchild of Angela J. Reed (of the blog Parisienne Farmgirl) and Shaye Elliott (of the blog The Elliott Homestead.) Filled with wit and wisdom about all things homemaking, gardening, style and so much more, it feels a lot like a gathering of girlfriends over some charcuterie boards and fancy drinks.  If you’re looking for relatable conversation and a good laugh, then you’re in the right place.
