BYOP (Bring-Your-Own-Podcast)

This month, Alex chose Girl Tales as her BYOP!

Girl Tales is a podcast featuring reimagined fairytales. Damsels in distress? Princesses in need of protection? You won’t find those here. The girls in our stories take control of their own destinies, turning your favorite fairytales into exciting new adventures. Written by women, non-binary, and trans male playwrights, Girl Tales offers a feminist twist on classic fairytales, fables, and myths. With energetic voice actors and professional sound design, these radio plays burst to life at the touch of a button.

There are various formats for the episodes, ranging from more traditional storytelling to fun “Nova’s Lab Segments” to their LGDBT (Little Girls Doing Big Things) interviews. If you’re seeking a fun, inclusive, empowering show for little ones, look no further!

Although the show is taking a hiatus, there’s plenty of great backlist to get you and your younger listener through the summer. Try out Anansi and the Sky Goddess Asase Yaa” by Bleu Beckford-Burrell for straightforward storytelling, or “Nova’s Lab! Becoming Queen Lili’uokalani’s Ukelele” for a fun and informative science-meets-history episode.

Find more about the show on their website, Twitter, and Instagram.

Interview with The Point Noir Podcast host Jerry the 3rd

This month, we had an insightful chat with Jerry the 3rd—he shared a wealth of info about his podcast journey and how he’s focused on creating community for men of color who travel.

The Point Noir Podcast features travel and adventure stories for men of color, told by men of color, seeking to shift their paradigms through travel. Host Jerry the 3rd cultivates perspectives of those who have taken the leap to explore life beyond their homes and comfort zones.

Towards the end of the interview, Jerry shared his tips for anyone looking to start their own podcast projects:

  1. Go with something that you’re passionate about and interested in. Get caught doing something you wanted to do anyway.
  2. Get started before you think you’re ready.

Catch up with the show (and Jerry) on his website, Instagram, and Twitter!
