A Podcast For Every Mood

I started listening to podcasts fairly recently, so I may not be as knowledgable as many of you out there. But, I have fallen in love with listening to a few to help get me through this thing called life! Just as eclectic as my style can be, so is my taste in music, and now podcasts. Let’s get into which podcasts I look forward to…

Jesus & Jollof with Luvvie Ajayi & Yvonne Orji

As you all know my husband is Nigerian. (If you didn’t, welcome!) That being said, jollof rice is one of my favorite Nigerian dishes. (I’ve only had Nigerian Jollof, I am not here for a Jollof rice debate.) I came across Luvvie Ajayi from her book, I’m Judging You: The Do Better Manual, and I have been following her ever since. And we all know Yvonne Orji from HBO’s hit show Insecure. When they started their podcast, I instantly related to the cultural Naija shenanigans they discuss, their love of Jesus, and just all around motivational advice from two dope women.

The Read with Kid Fury & Crissle

If you are in need of laughing your ass off, THE READ, is the right podcast for you. It is pop culture, meets advice column, meets reading the eff out of the stupid people that walk this earth and the dumb things they do. I listen to THE READ when I am commuting from PA to NYC, or on my way to work. And I must warn you, you will be laughing out loud in public, they are that funny. NSFW (Not Safe For Work)!

The Potter’s Touch Podcast with Bishop TD Jakes

I am by far not the most religious person there is, but I do believe in a higher power. When I need that extra bit of spiritual motivation, I turn to this podcast by Bishop Jakes. The episodes are less than an hour and the sermons give you just enough of the message without being boring. I listen to these on Sunday evenings as the last thing I take in before I sleep, to get a good leg up on the new week.

Therapy for Black Girls Podcast

Therapy has always been a touchy subject in our community. I have never been, nor has anyone in my family. Do I think we could benefit? Yes. I have gone back and forth with the idea of speaking to someone for the last couple years. However, I have not made any serious inquiries into finding someone. I love this podcast because it is hosted by a clinical psychologist, and provides helpful tips we can all use. This will not replace therapy, but I enjoy listening to get my mental health in order.
