Have you listened to any good podcasts lately? We’d love to hear what you’re listening to. Here are a few we’ve found interesting in February.
You Had Me at Black – Hosts Martina Abrahams Ilunga and Britney Abrahams have released their 8th season of this great podcast which shares the life stories of Black Millennials from travel to dating, in their own words. This season’s theme is “unraveling,” and you’ll hear some great stories from Black men and women who have experienced their own version of this theme in their life. One of the great features of this podcast is the length. 15–20-minute episodes are great when you don’t have a lot of time to listen but are looking for some new perspectives. Check it out.
Fit Black Queens – With near weekly releases, Fit Black Queens share the #blackgirl perspective on Health, Wellness, and Fitness. This month they’ve released episodes on financial health, heart health, surfing and COVID-19. The COVID-19 addresses specific questions regarding the vaccines from readers with Dr. Patricia N. Whitley-Williams, President of the National Foundation for Infectious Disease. She shares insight into how the vaccine works, concerns from the Black community and why she believes it’s important to get the vaccine.
We Danglin – Self-described as “two country Black girls” this podcast discusses “life, foolery, science, and social media.” Amanda Wise and Tiara Moore are hilarious as they talk about things they are not willing to pay for (air for tires, ATM fees, shipping) in their February 4th episode amidst a discussion about being expected to do intellectual and physical labor that falls beyond their job description at their current jobs without pay in relation to Black History Month. In their second podcast for February “the scent of Black culture,” they talk about infamous scents in the Black community.
Therapy for Black Girls – A weekly chat about mental health, personal development and all the small decisions required to become the best version of oneself. These conversations with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in ATL and her guests provide a range of practical tips and strategies to improve mental health, answers to your questions about therapy, mental health and basically anything else. Dr. Joy pulls the curtain back on therapy and helps you get a better understanding of what happens in therapy and how you might find it helpful. Check out her On the Couch, On the Porch with Dr. Joy and No Copay Needed episodes each month.
