5 Black Podcasts to Listen ToMar 03, 2023 10:00AM ● By Kyrah Page
I had little knowledge of podcasts growing up. Who wants to hear someone talk for hours on end? I found them to be dull. My opinion of podcasts, however, shifted as I grew older. I learned to enjoy and respect the craft of podcasts as my college schedule got busier, and I was exposed to more. Podcasts are a way to hear other perspectives, stay caught up on current events, or laugh.
“Small Doses”, a podcast by Amada Seals, was the first I ever listened to. I frequently turned in to her podcast since it was so humorous and realistic. I’m unsure if it was the subjects she covered or how engaging she made what she said sound, but I found myself interested and engaged. I believe that more individuals are starting podcasts today and becoming more pertinent. With that said, I’ve listed a few podcasts below that are run by Black people that I’ve either been recommended or have personally listened to!
