Amazing

Dont you just love it when you stumble upon something amazing?! Thats exactly what happened with this pod, I love the personalities of the hosts, the content of every podcast and its just always a vibe - if anyone wants an easy listening podcast then this is the one for you.

providing feedback

i personally don’t follow podcasters i listen to on ig or anything because i like the idea of only knowing ur stories based on you words. so i’m leaving a review just to let you know i'm listening ahaha. i love ur podcast girls keep going!

The most addictive podcast!

Fun, inclusive, thought-provoking and refreshing - the BGL podcast is one of the best available. Although outside of their usual listener base (I’m mid-30s), I love this inclusive, joyful and sensitive podcast. Vic and Jas are brilliant hosts, and their genuine friendship shines through (no competitive one-upmanship here). I appreciate the girls’ candour when dealing with sensitive topics, drawing on their own experience in managing mental health challenges, and their great sense of humour. The podcast is clearly a beloved project for Jas and Vic, and never feels artificial or overly curated - the conversation flows and feels genuine, whether discussing serious topics (like politics, race, colourism, mental health) or more light-hearted ones (like Love Island, 90s music or the perils of wearing your wig to an MRI scan...). Consistently celebrating and supporting each other, and providing great recommendations via their weekly ‘Black Excellence’ recommendations, these two are the definition of uplifting Black Girl Magic for me.
