6 Podcasts to Keep You Informed On "The Culture"


Over the years, podcasting has transformed into the phenomenon we know today. Along with the new trends and technology advancement, International Podcast Day has flourished as well. In 2014 National Podcast Day kicked off a celebration with six full hours of broadcasting. Founded by Steve Lee, the holiday evolved into what we know today with the help of his team. When the positive impact of international podcasting became apparent, the holiday was renamed and is now known as International Podcast Day. Between 2015 and 2019, countless hours have been broadcasted around the world. And as a result, ushering in podcasters and industry leaders from 70 countries to connect or collaborate. To celebrate the day, here's a lineup of podcasts you won't want to miss.

Hosted by Brittany Luse and Eric Eddings, The Nod digs deep into issues that directly connect with people of color.

We celebrate the genius, the innovation, and the resilience that is so particular to being Black -- in America, and around the world.
