A show that delves into topics that seem mundane, annoying and sometimes downright boring - to reveal that they're surprisingly awesome.
The Lo Life
Gimlet Media has a new podcast all about the beautiful and complicated dimensions of Black life. It's called The Nod, and it's hosted by best friends (and Blackness' biggest fans) Eric Eddings and Brittany Luse. In this episode, Eric tells Brittany all about his love for Polo Ralph Lauren—and the story of one group of boosters in Brooklyn who took their own love for Polo to another level.

Bring it back.
Bring it back and if the hosts don’t want to do then I’m more than happy to host!
Bring it back!!!
The “extinct hockey” episode was the most boring thing I’ve ever heard. I tried to hang in there for several episodes.
Come ON Gimlet
So in the beginning this was a really promising show full of fun episodes! Then the told us that two hosts were quitting and Rachel was going on hiatus over winter. They come back two months late saying they will continue making episodes then come back and tell us that the last host is leaving TOO!! They tell us they will continue with a new host and by april they finally tell us they are stopping surprisingly awesome.
the Adams did a greta job of hosting, and they took truly noting topics like mild pigeons and cement and made it into an interesting, marketable episode! Rachel did the best she could with the resources that she was given but the newest host before they quit the show just didn’t make the cut. A total disappointment
