Three Essential Podcasts For Black Folks, By Black Folks

By Bethany Whittaker

During this virtual school year and especially this election, we’ve all been searching for ways to self-care and nourish our minds. The right podcasts can provide a good cry or a laugh when you need it, so if you haven’t hopped on the podcast bandwagon yet, here’s your chance.

Take a mental health day to sit back, relax, and enjoy these hand-picked podcasts created for and by Black folks.

Black Girl Blueprint 

This podcast epitomizes the millennial Black Girl experience. Black Girl Blueprint’s hosts, Lauren Ritchie and Makeen Zachery, hit topics ranging from Black wellness to the ups and downs of your 20-somethings (whew, I needed that episode). Their podcast centers the voices and celebrates the accomplishments of young Black women who have made their own impact on everyday culture.

Favorite episodes include: “God Bless These 20-Somethings: The Pressure To Have Life Figured Out” and “Being The Blueprint: Blackfishing, Blaccents, & More!”

Speaking Our Language

What are you trying to navigate in your life? You may feel lost but you are not alone, and this podcast displays just that. Hosts Ashley Lauren and Elston Bell Jr. speak through their experiences navigating self-sabotage, self-awareness, and Blackness. These conversations are hard to have, but always worth it. With diverse perspectives from both hosts, this podcast displays Black excellence to the fullest.

Favorite episodes include: “Navigating Self-Sabotage” and “Navigating Expectations”

Blackbelt Voices

Blackbelt Voices amplifies the voices of Black Southern culture and its expansive richness. It’s main attraction is the first-person narratives and the in-depth conversations around each topic they discuss. Hosts Adena J. White, Kara Wilkens, and Katrina Dupins touch on Black American history and race relations in the United States. Definitely a must-listen.

Favorite episodes include: “Rioting in American History” and “A Movement We Should Sustain”
