I crave good storytelling, like medicine or food. 

Lately, I listen to a lot of podcasts at work. My mainstays are BBC Global News, and Stuff You Missed In History Class. The Truth is a fave, but updates infrequently. 

I want story; metaphor elevates me out of "point and click, lather rinse repeat." I want plot, I want action. I want it in the moment. 

The Bechdel-Wallace (as Ms. B has said she thinks it should be called) Test is more important than I've realized. When I was a kid, I wanted to be Han Solo, so I could save Luke and kiss Leia.  Try to find any story where a woman does that. I'll read it or watch or listen to it, and praise you for leading me to it. 

I want to create those stories, but I flounder on the rocks. I'm still trying.

I don't want to exclude men. I want to include men and women. The field is wide, but thin as it stands. 

In the meantime, I watch Jessica Jones at night and keep hitting the search button during the day. ​

Response from a friend on Twitter:

Michelle West's House Wars, Seanan McGuire's Toby Daye #series Anything by Kameron Hurley. Cat Valente of course.
Quite the challenge. If I catch any, I'll let you know.

The one tidbit I have for now is RISK podcast. It's another 'story podcast' which is people getting on stage and telling stories that they never thought that they would tell.

It's not my favorite, and if I'm honest, the host is like fingernails on a chalk board to me, but the stories are far more inclusive (and relationship focused) than many of the other shows.

Due to the fact that it's real people telling stories about things that they experienced, it might not be inspirational for quite the breadth you're looking for, but it's something.
Saw this one, thought of you: Legends, Myths and Whiskey. :)
Yup. Already a subscriber. There's also Lore (which I highly recommend) and a few others that I'm sure I will think about after I post this comment.
I have tweeted your request, hopefully I will get some responses.

If not, I will start tagging people in the faceyspace.

Also, I wrote a couple of stories like this, one that was a pirate story and one that was a musketeers story. The heroines were hetero, but they kicked ass and didn't need a man to kick ass for them.
