Uplifting, relatable and empowering to girls and women alike, this podcast amplifies the voice of creative and passionate girls who have a love for music and aren't afraid to speak their minds. Girls Make Beats Podcast features hosts of various ages and backgrounds who lead discussions in a talk show format. Episodes touch on a range of topics that are relevant to tweens and teens (gender gap, mental health, climate change, racial inequality) and to future "girl bosses" (entrepreneurship, self-empowerment, music production) of the world.

Although the podcast is geared toward tween and teenage girls, adults and listeners of all identities gain exposure to the lives and opinions of girls from diverse backgrounds who have differing opinions. Ultimately, the female hosts bond through their shared interest in music production and their involvement with the Girls Make Beats non-profit organization. Hosts create a safe and supportive space for other girls to feel heard and understood. The audio can sometimes sound a bit muffled since each girl is recording from different places, but what lacks in audio quality is made up for in content and authenticity.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
