Podcasts: Get Into Them!

Sometimes an escape from work is needed. Unfortunately, hopping in our car and taking a road trip to the nearest sandy beach is more than likely not an option. So, there has has to be some kind of escape, right??? Of course there is!

Podcasts have been around for a while now, but I never really got into them because I had no idea what they were. I was under the misconception that they were only used for education or lectures, but there are so many genres from relationships to sex to comedy to sports and everything in between. I was first introduced to them because I randomly followed a guy who goes by MyPotnaB on Twitter. I would always see him tweeting about his podcast episodes, but I never paid it any mind.

One day, I remember him tweeting something to the effect of, "If you're trying to figure out where to start with my Podcast, listen to 'Can I Cuss, Mama?'". For some reason, that caught my attention and I decided to give it a try. For almost an hour, I found myself laughing, nodding my head in agreement, and I even got teary eyed at one point. It was such a great show and before you knew it I was listening to all his other episodes. Once I looked up and realized it was 4:30 pm (I get off work at 5), I knew I had to find more podcasters to listen to!

Since then, I have 5 podcasts that I listen to on a regular basis and they truly are great entertainment while I'm at work. Check them out below! (SN: These Podcasts are NSFW, so either turn your computer down or plug your headphones in. We don't want you to get fired!)

1. MyPotnaB
The first Podcast I've ever listened to!! Brandon or MyPotnaB ("cuz you don't know him like that") is downright hilarious! He talks about the day to day things that happen in life that EVERYONE can relate to. It's quite refreshing when you think you're the only person going through something and someone else is dealing with the same thing! As funny as he is, he always has an encouraging word for his listeners that will help you get through your day. He often has guests on his show that are non other than his own good friends; he definitely knows how to pick them, because every guest has been a hilarious addition to the show. This podcast is definitely a must listen!

2. The Friend Zone
Dustin, Fran, and Assante are from three different worlds. However, opposites attract well because this trio comes together every week to give amazing tips on wellness for the mind, body, and soul "because who in the hell wants a musty brain?!" They focus on topics that allow the listener to dig deep inside themselves and WANT to become a better person. The energy that comes from these three friends is amazing and will leave you feeling like you've been friends with them all your life. My favorite segment is the Wellness Segment where Fran talks about everything from aligning your chakras to taking ACV detox baths. This podcast is great for whoever wants positive vibes and to be a better person overall!

3. Lip Service
If the subject of sex doesn't scare you, you'll love this Podcast! This one is not for the faint of heart! The topics on this show would have even Rihanna clutching her pearls, and that's saying a lot! Radio personality Angela Yee, from the Breakfast Club and a few of her friends get together every week to have girl talk and it does not disappoint! A few of your favorite celebrities even stop by to share their knowledge on all things naughty! From rappers, to reality stars, to porn stars, nobody or nothing is off limits on this show! We won't discuss the topics on this blog, you'll just have to check it out for yourself!

4. The Read
Crissle and Kid Fury hold nothing back on this unapologetically down to earth show. This duo has zero tolerance for ignorance and will "read" anybody who deserves it! They cover everything from hot topics to racism to "Black Excellence". If they have an opinion, believe you will hear it. Their funny take on the world's issues will either have you doubled over in laughter or screaming "right on" with one fist in the air!

5. Tax Season
Turn down your headphones and if you don't like cursing, don't even bother! Haha! This podcast is by none other than Tax Stone! This ex-drug dealer from New York turned his life around and now has a very successful podcast that covers hip-hop from every angle. Some of your favorite rappers have been on this podcast and it is quite entertaining. Hip hop is not my primary choice of music (I'm an old school R&B girl.), but for some reason this podcast keeps me so entertained that I just can't stop listening in. Tax is hilarious and has absolutely no filter. Listen in, it's definitely an experience!
