About This List

A little dose of culture never hurt anybody. Here are the best Black (or African American) podcasts to entertain you!
  1. Phoebe Robinson is tired of being the token black woman in an ocean of white dude comedians. So in this podcast, Phoebe’s calling the shots. She’ll host intimate, funny and super honest conversations with musicians, actors, writers and comedians who are killing it in their fields — AND who aren’t white dudes! Stay tuned for the one token white guy (it’s only fair), cameos by Phoebe’s ball-busting executive producer Ilana Glazer, and a whole lot of hijinks.

  2. Join bloggers Kid Fury and Crissle for their weekly podcast covering hip-hop and pop culture's most trying stars. Throwing shade and spilling tea with a flippant and humorous attitude, no star is safe from Fury and Crissle unless their name is Beyoncé. (Or Blue Ivy.) As transplants to New York City (Kid Fury from Miami and Crissle from Oklahoma City), The Read also serves as an on-air therapy session for two friends trying to adjust to life (and rats) in the big city. The Read is part of the LoudSpeakers Network and is published every week on iTunes, iHeart Radio Talk, Soundcloud & Stitcher.
  3. Phoebe Robinson and Jessica Williams are funny. They’re black. They’re BFFs. And they host a a live comedy show in Brooklyn. Join the 2 Dope Queens, along with their favorite comedians, for stories about sex, romance, race, hair journeys, living in New York, and Billy Joel. Plus a whole bunch of other S**t.

  4. A podcast featuring women of color with different views on topics hosted by Marina Franklin.
  5. Take the Lead Podcast is design to take the action steps to lead by example. Your peers are watching your every move. Take the Lead will help you stay on your P’s & Q’s in this journey. We need someone to step up to the plate. Will the example be YOU? Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/terachantelle/support
  6. A podcast at the inters​ection of Comics and Blackness. Join us as we chat with comic creators and promote diverse comix! Hosted by Anthony Otero, Marcus Kwame, Leonardo Faierman, Grace Gipson, and Thelonious Legend.
  7. The Therapy for Black Girls podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves.
  8. Black Girl Nerds is a podcast and place where girls of our ilk can express themselves freely and embrace who they are. This is not a show exclusively for Black women, but it is a show exclusively for Nerds! Haha! The end of each episode provides information on each of our social networks and a preview to the next week's podcast topic.
