I didn’t realize how entertaining and helpful podcasts can be until I actually gave them a chance. I thought all of them were just long episodes of people rambling that I would eventually get bored from and zone out of, but obviously not all podcasts are like that. Podcasts are basically like youtube videos without the footage, like an interesting conversation that you’re sort of eavesdropping on from the sidelines. Earlier this year I started listening to podcasts during my free time and replacing my music with it during my commutes on the bus or in the car and I love it.
Podcasts hosted by Black women are hands down the best ones you can listen to because who else is funnier and smarter than us? No one! These podcasts may make you laugh, they might even make you cry, but know that either way it’ll be time well-spent!
Because none of us really know what we’re doing as we grow up, we’re all sort of just winging adulthood and Keia and Jade right here beside us every confused step of the way to help us through it. With discussions and advice on adulting, self-care for Black women, and the occasional pop culture gossip, Gettin’ Grown is the shining beacon of light for us confused adults.
