Black podcasts and black podcasters are not a trend. They are here to stay and I am loving it!
Earlier last year, l fell in love with podcasts. Prior to that I was an audio book junkie and was subscribed to Audible. I’ve since canceled my Audible account for the time being. In it’s place, I discovered a ton of podcasts for free! I’ve been hooked every since.
Whether you are a blogger, business owner, network marketing, or just starting out in their entrepreneurial journey, what you put between your ears matters.
Black podcasts have given me a space that feels safe to indulge in all things black without judgement or having to explain myself. They have acted as virtual invitations to connect with other black mothers. Lastly, they have been an extension of my business coaching.
Business is always changing. Techniques are always improving. So it is important to always be learning and staying up to date with the trends in your business. This can be done by taking an online course in your industry, joining a mastermind group, reading books or listening to podcasts.
On a personal front, the right podcast can motivate, inspire, and encourage you to take action towards your dreams and goals. Podcasts can also help you in your relationships with your partner, friends, and even with God. And some podcasts are simply just fun to listen to like chatting with your best friend.
Here are a few of my favorite black podcasts that are totally binge worthy now and always.
