Here at She+ Geeks Out we love us some podcasts! Not only do we have a great time recording our own, we also listen to a bunch and thought we’d share our favorites from this past year. Here are some of the podcasts we’ve been spending time with.
2 Dope Queens — Phoebe Robinson and Jessica Williams share personal stories on sex, dating, hair, work, and more. Their conversations are juxtaposed with short sets from their favorite comedians. YQY!
Another Round — Heben Nigatu and Tracy Clayton’s podcast is basically ‘happy hour with friends you haven’t met yet.’ They cover everything from race, to gender, to pop culture, to squirrels, and more.
Code Switch — This NPR podcast covers race, ethnicity and culture and how they play a part in our everyday lives. Kat Chow, Adrian Florido and Gene Demby provide a welcoming space to delve into some frankly heady issues, especially given the current political climate.
