10 PODCASTS EVERY BLACK MOM SHOULD LISTEN TO

Podcast that provide knowledge and information are officially on every mama’s to-do list. As mommies, we often have short or insufficient time for frivolous acts or any extra activity, podcasts are an easy way for us to nourish our minds with very little fuss. You can listen to podcast while you carry out your chores, work your 9-5 job, and drive around dropping your kids here and there.

There are podcast for people who love science, murder mysteries and, of course, there are podcast for Black moms. Black moms can get everything from motivational speeches, training and philosophy right from the comfort of their mobile cell phone.

Here are just a few of my favorite podcast for black moms, just like me.
