Alex Cooper of 'Call Her Daddy' on top after Barstool split

Call her filthy rich.

Nearly two years after breaking up with Barstool Sports and her business partner, Alex Cooper’s insanely popular sex-talk podcast, “Call Her Daddy,” now has 2.3 million followers and a $60 million deal with Spotify.

The 27-year-old Pennsylvania native is now the second most popular female podcast host in the world — second only to former First Lady Michelle Obama.

“I didn’t exactly know what I was doing in the beginning,” Cooper told London’s Sunday Times. “I had just got out of college, there were a lot of themes in my life that made me feel like, why do, one, my friends always gravitate toward me?”

“Probably because I’m saying what they’re all thinking,” she said. “And then, two, why, in the media, is there no space for women to discuss these topics that are totally fine for me to discuss, but the minute a woman tries to navigate the conversation, it’s considered taboo and we get slut-shamed, et cetera.”

The raunchy podcast, which Cooper calls “a woman’s locker-room conversation,” was launched in 2018 with Cooper’s ex-roommate, Sofia Franklyn — and logged 2 million downloads after just two months of broadcasts.

The success was so sudden that it surprised even Cooper, she told the Times.

“I remember when someone first brought up the podcast idea and I was like, ‘that sounds like something my dad does,'” she said. “He listens to podcasts.”

“Wait,” she recalled thinking. “Why am I so not interested in podcasts?”

The unfiltered broadcasts remained a sensation until hitting choppy waters last year when the two women got into a nasty contract spat with Barstool founder Dave Portnoy.

Cooper and Franklyn also got into a bitter fight themselves, ending their business partnership and even their friendship — they still don’t talk to each other.

Franklyn then went solo, launching a new “Sofia With an F” podcast in October last year.

Cooper, meanwhile, relaunched “Call Her Daddy” on her own — and hit paydirt in July, inking a three-year deal with Spotify for a reported $60 million.

“The number of women that tell me, ‘Thank you for making sex sexy again,'” she told the Times. “There are so many serious topics that can be discussed, but this is a company podcast.”

“I’m trying to make people feel good about themselves, confident about themselves, excited about sex,” Cooper added
