As I mentioned before I am a podcast junkie. I am so glad podcasts continue to be a thing. Podcasts are on my playlist at least 4 days a week if not more.
I am always up for checking out new shows or continuing to listen to some of my favorites. So let me tell you what a few of my favorites are at the moment:
Raising A Pro– Hosted by Annie Apple who is a journalist, storyteller, and NFL mom. I love this podcast for so many reasons. First off Annie the host is so dang funny. She is always dropping knowledge and humor. On the show Annie interviews families of NFL players and talks about their journey growing up.
It is always fun to hear the different paths these athletes experienced from the young pop warner pee-wee football days all the way to the NFL. When they discuss the high school and college years I really enjoy it. So many of these players have had to overcome some sort of obstacle. Whether it be coaches who did not believe in them, family struggles, injuries etc. Hearing a comeback story or an underdog proving doubters wrong always makes me happy. No matter what level of an athlete you have in your family if you tune into Raising A Pro you will be entertained.
Gettin’ Grown– This is a newer podcast for me and I LOVE it. The hosts Jade and Keia are great and when you listen to them chat it up it is like you’re chatting with friends. Jade and Keia talk about all sorts of things that we as adults have to deal with. They love to cut up and laugh. They have interviewed some awesome folks and you will walk away from their kitchen table feeling like you just had coffee, a meal and a good talk with friends. If you’re looking for a new good listen definitely check them out.
The Morgan Harper Nichols Show– I found this podcast at the right time. Let me tell you it soothes my mind. Morgan has such a comforting voice. Morgan is an artist and poet. Her words will make your heart smile and she will make you think. If you’re on instagram check her page out.
I could go on and on about podcasts so let me just mention a few more and if you are not already listening to them go give them a listen: The Read not rated E for everyone but if you like hip-hop and pop culture check it out. The Friend Zone they talk about everything from politics, current events, culture, you name it and they are talking about it also not rated E for everyone. Last but not least In the Light with Dr. Anita Phillps is a good one that talks alot about mental health situations. I love In the Light because Dr. Anita is a religious person but she KNOWS the importance of counseling and does not just say to folks to “just pray about it”.
