Black History Month Recommendations!

Hi pod pals!

I’m hopeful that you’re all celebrating and supporting Black creators every month of the year, but I’m excited to shout out some of the show in my rotation if you’re looking for some new listens.

Still Processing

This podcast from The New York Times is hosted by contributors Jenna Wortham and Wesley Morris and covers culture, culture, culture—from music to movies to television and more. It’s an Alex staple!

The Unofficial Expert

You think you know-it-all but you have no idea. Join Sydnee Washington & Marie Faustin as they sit down with comedians and people of the culture to talk about their fields of expertise.

The Point Noir Podcast

Travel and adventure stories for men of color, told by men of color. Host Jerry The 3rd cultivates perspectives of those who have taken the leap to explore life beyond their homes and comfort zones. And, catch our interview with Jerry here!

Scam Goddess

Scam Goddess is a podcast dedicated to fraud and all those who practice it! Each week host Laci Mosley (aka Scam Goddess) keeps listeners up to date on current rackets, digs deep into the latest scams, and breaks down historic hoodwinks alongside some of your favorite comedians! It’s like true crime only without all the death! True fun crime!

The Nod

The Nod tells the stories of Black life that don’t get told anywhere else. Our show ranges from an explanation of purple drink’s association with Black culture to the story of an interracial drag troupe that traveled the nation in the 1940s. We celebrate the genius, the innovation, and the resilience that is so particular to being Black—in America, and around the world.

The Read

Join Kid Fury and Crissle for their weekly podcast covering hip-hop and pop culture’s most trying stars. Throwing shade and spilling tea with a flippant and humorous attitude, no star is safe from Fury and Crissle unless their name is Beyoncé. (Or Blue Ivy.)

The United States of Anxiety

Host Kai Wright bridges the past to the present to the future in this show about American society. Listen for insightful conversations and interviews about race, culture, and history.

Driving the Green Book

Award-winning BBC broadcaster Alvin Hall joins activist and social justice trainer Janée Woods Weber on an audio journey through American cities, discussing the way Black Americans used The Green Book to travel cross-country during the height of segregation. A solid historical podcast that’s truly immersive.

Therapy for Black Girls

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly chat about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.

The Daily Shine

This meditation podcast is perfect for anyone seeking self-care and a moment for themselves. The show is part of The Shine, a larger initiative that values intersectionality and inclusivity in mental health.

Bye for now,

Alex
