The Nod tells the stories of Black life that don’t get told anywhere else, from an explanation of how purple drink became associated with Black culture to the story of how an interracial drag troupe traveled the nation in the 1940s. We celebrate the genius, the innovation, and the resilience that is so particular to being Black -- in America, and around the world.

Another black podcast about blackness

Their old podcast was far far better. It’s another black podcast about blackness and blah blah blah. Their old podcast was so much better. So much more depth. Far more topics discussed with real depth and real life experience that reached and crossed so many aspect of life that are relatable on so many more levels. I mean they discussed performing adulthood. That was a great episode on their old podcast. This podcast is garbage. It’s so watered down and just like every other black blah blah blah. As a black persons am sick of the the “black experience”. I am more than just black. They were so good and different now they re just black. Just like ever other black blah blah blah. Sigh
