Here I go! Here I go! HERE I GO AGAIN! Girls whats my weakness… PODCASTS… LMFAO!!!!!!! Sorry not sorry, Men ain’t my weakness over here. But I do have a weakness for good music and good podcasts. I’ve really started listening to podcasts within the last 3 years and I must say it really all started after being a YouTube fiend for a video on hair products and styles and listening to T.D. Jakes on YT.
Then a friend of mine would send me recordings of the sermons she attended on Sundays. The quality was poor *sorry sis* but I googled ‘Hillsong’ and BOOM I saw Podcast and said to myself “I hope this is what she sent me, then low and behold it was. I started listening to church sermons via Podcast. And from there I just explored for other podcasts I could listen to. And now I have a weekly run of podcast to look forward to.
Here are my favorite podcasts
Woman Evolve with Sarah Jakes Roberts
On this Podcast we learn how to Mind Our Business, keep drinking our water and trying to Rescue Eve (women or brands in the media we may not totally agree with), and recognizing the good deeds of those women and men as Hail Mary/Joseph. Sarah Jakes Roberts keeps it real yet brings the word of God into every situation. She’s your sister from another mister.
Deadass with Khadeen and Devale
This young millenial married couple with 3 kids talk about their relationship before they were married, they get into what marriage is really like, and their relationship with their children and many other topics we tend to stray from like natural water birth, health and fitness and more. Oh Deadass they keep it 100% and they’re from BROOKLYN!!!
Therapy for Black Girls
Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed therapist in ATL, talks therapy; what to expect in therapy, healing, grief, losing loved ones, making peace with yourself. She shares so much on her podcast for you to get a snippet of what topics you can talk about with your therapist or even if you want a therapist but don’t know how to go about it this podcast gives an inch into the benefits of therapy. If your unsure about Therapy please give this podcast a listen to get a little feel of what to expect from a therapist. It’s not what you see in TV!
Jesus and Jollof
So I just started listening to this podcast 2 weeks ago and I’m all caught up. Hosted by Yvonne Orji who plays Molly on Insecure and Luvvie Ajayi, writer and author of New York’s Best Time Seller ‘I’m Judging You’. These two young African millennials are spitting knowledge about their trails growing up under pressure to purse feilds their parents wanted and still breaking the boundaries of what success looks like and sounds like. If you’ve grown up in a home with old fashion parents that think life is all about getting a career as a Doctor, Lawyer or Engineer but you’ve chosen a different path oh you’ll definitely relate to these women and you will laugh I guarantee it. And let’s not forget the talk of relationships, adulting and money. They drop a couple of gems!!!
