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.

Outstanding

The Nod is my favorite podcast! Eloise Westbrook and all the peanut butter chronicles are excellent. I’ve listened the Oprah’s Legend Ball episode three times. Love, love, love Brittany and Eric!

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.
