Much needed and much enjoyed
I am loving this podcast. It is much needed and much enjoyed. Far too many podcasts, including some of my favorites, are hosted by white guys. Sooo many white guys--hey, boo-boo Phoebe Robinson. Anyway, it's a pleasure to hear a podcast with two women of color talking about books and reading, my favorite pastimes. They also have discussions about TV, movies, and pop culture--always a plus. Sometimes the hosts get too giggly, but the content of the podcast more than makes up for their silliness. I look forward to each new episode.
Super good podcast
Catching up cause I'm late to the party, but this podcast is awesome. YAY moar black girls talking black lit.... it's LIT!
Black Girl Lit Joy
These too are sooo funny and they chat about books, TV, and things that Black Girls care about. It's like having two of your girlfriends in your living room chatting and sipping wine. They are so funny!!
