Wonderful Podcast!

I’ve never been a podcast person. I’ve tried to listen to them but often just end up zoning out but not with Balanced Black Girl Podcast! I really appreciate and enjoy that the episodes are not all an hour, have various topics and various lengths. It’s nice to be able to listen to something short then have something longer to listen to. Plus it is great how Les really presents so much for people of color. I really enjoy it and hope other people check it out!

Very relevant
