I remember when the pandemic began and I found myself searching and wanting more to either watch, read or listen. Netflix, Youtube, reading articles and books, radio, whatever it was I was always ready for it. But something was missing and I instantly found myself listening to podcasts. It influenced me in such a positive, new light that I felt so inspired to launch my own. I had a story to tell and so much advice to give. Podcasts are so amazing and I feel that black people – black women especially have gone unheard and underrepresented in traditional media.
Although, we are now able to take control and create our own lane for our voices to be heard through media, podcasts have definitely been a means to do so. A take on politics, beauty, trends, wellness, relationships, spirituality, sex, whatever it is. Mine in particular is centered around self-improvement and having intimate conversations based off the everyday life and finding positive ways to deal with them. I could go on and on about my podcast but I wanted to shift the focus on black hosted podcasts who I’ve been listening to who have inspired me in so many ways. These are all black, empowering and powerful women.
