The Nod Celebrates Black History Month
In honor of Black History Month — the month that celebrates all things black life and culture — we thought we’d reach out to 2 podcasters that ‘explore all the beautiful, complicated dimensions of Black life’ in their podcast The Nod (from Gimlet Media). We asked hosts Brittany Luse and Eric Eddings to share the shows about black life and culture they’re listening to not just this month but all year long…read on for their picks!
It’s Black History Month! Each February we come together to celebrate the genius, the innovation, and the resilience that is so particular to being Black — in America, and around the world. Here at The Nod we take that mission and try to live it 365 days a year. Like Issa Rae, we’re “rooting for everybody Black,” and here are some of our favorite Black podcasts, so you can too!
