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.

Long time listener

I came to The Nod as a listener of For Colored Nerds (Brittany & Eric’s original, independent podcast). I loved FCN and really wanted to love The Nod but it’s just not as good. The content on this show seems watered and dumbed down in comparison. It’s just not as interesting.

BRILLIANT

This podcast takes creative to whole new level. Such a niche area but it’s insane the stories that are shared on this podcast and what a listener is able to learn. I feel Blacker just by listening. Truly a one of a kind show. God bless. Keep spreading your magic through this platform! Love from DC ♥️

The education we ALL need!

I’ve listened to EVERY episode of this show. As a result, I’ve learned about people and events that I had never heard of in my almost 36 years of life. Each episode leaves me wanting more! Thank you for teaching me and so many others about important facts and figures we may not know about otherwise.
