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.

The Real!

This podcast is so good. It's like chilling with two of your smartest, funniest friends talking the real. The Illuminati episode? Get out. So hilarious. I'm so glad this podcast is here.

Great Show, but gotta do more around economics

Just heard the first good for the blacks on Jay Z’s album, and really think it’s weak to continue to portray the message that blacks can’t succeed or participate in the capitalistic system. Yes we have historically, and many cases continue to be, excluded; however, we are at a point in time to where we can take control. The last thing we want is a centralized government. Let’s talk about how we can better shape capitalism rather than moving away from it.
