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…
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.

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 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.
These are the few podcasts that are currently in my library. If you have any suggestions, please drop a line below. Which podcast episodes take up time in your earbuds?
