Alex Cooper is the creator, host and executive producer of the hugely successful podcast and brand Call Her Daddy (CHD), which has evolved into a global movement — imparting her own stamp, and cultural imprint on modern feminism. Call Her Daddy has amassed millions of listeners per episode and is the number one podcast for women on Spotify globally, as well as ranked consecutively as one of the most popular podcasts on Spotify Wrapped in 2021 and 2022.

Hailed by Time Magazine as “arguably the most successful woman in podcasting,” Alex began to blaze a path through the podcasting medium in 2018 that had never existed before: a space where women were encouraged, empowered, and emboldened to share their unapologetic stories and truths. From reclaiming one’s power after experiencing trauma, sexual fluidity, self-love and debunking mental health stigmas to tackling uncomfortable topics on her podcast in a more documentary format entitled “An Abortion Story,” – where Cooper examines the reality women are facing in the fight to preserve autonomy over their bodies. Adds The Hollywood Reporter, “Cooper doesn’t go so far as to tell listeners what to do, aside from a call-to-action for her fans to vote and understand the urgency behind exercising their right to do so. But it’s the beginning of a new era for the Call Her Daddy host who, while still embracing conversations about relationships and sex, feels the weight of her massive platform.”

Now the most listened-to female podcaster in the world, Alex continues to break all boundaries by shattering stigmas and stomping on misogyny, all while keeping mental health and personal empowerment at the forefront. Her thought-provoking conversations are meticulously designed to explore wide-ranging topics such as life experiences, culture, health, relationships, and more, all through her lens of comedy and extreme candor. To the millions of devoted Gen-Z and millennial listeners (“The Daddy Gang”) the Call Her Daddy brand represents a new set of values and standards, with many quotes and phrases permeating pop-culture vernacular. In addition, the Philly-bred entrepreneur has a successful merchandise line, as well as several exciting business endeavors in the pipeline. Recent Call Her Daddy guests have included: Jane Fonda, Post Malone, Gwyneth Paltrow, Zayn, Coi Leray, Kim Petra, Shay Mitchell, Christina Aguilera, John Mayer, Brazilian pop superstar Anitta, Madison Beer, Lil Dicky, John Legend, Rebel Wilson, Adam Devine, and Chelsea Handler, among others.
