Podcasts You’ll Love

So my headfirst dive into the podcast world was quick and extreme, but these podcasts are honestly the highlight of my week and I hope they can bring joy to you too.

The Read

Crissles & Kid Fury make my week every single time. Opening with a movie quote and this week’s Black Excellence. Then we enter the current events section of the podcast, Sick Sad World (now known as Hot Tops) it’s always funny. Then they do listener letters. They give family, work, and relationship advice and sometimes the situations are absolutely hilarious. Then comes the read. Both Crissles and Kid Fury pick someone to drag for filth each week. Sometimes it makes me laugh so hard I cry and other days it’s just great to know someone feels the same way I do about the ways of the world.

The Friendzone

The Friendzone is a wellness podcast “because who in the world wants a musty brain.” Hosted by Fran, Dustin, and Assante these three are funny, honest, and open. They don’t only talk about wellness but also discuss TV and music weekly and spotlight a black business every single week.



I am obsessed with Insecure, The Read, and The Friendzone and this podcast is a combination of all three. The official Insecure recap podcast is literally one of the highlights of my week.

Jade and Keia had me hooked from my first listen. Their guide to mature adulting is so helpful even though I’m pretty sure I’m in their target audience. This show is definitely super fun to listen to.

Black Men Can’t Jump in Hollywood


These three guys are hilarious. They review movies in relations to “the cause” (more leading black actors in Hollywood). They’re goofy, interesting, and funny. I love black movies and I love what they’re trying to highlight. Definitely check this out of you’re into movies.

    you’ve got my top three saves up there with my most fave being the read. I love their listener letters because people write in some foolishness and I holler at their advice. I need to check out the last two you posted.

    I actually never tried podcasts yet coz I’m dumped with a lot of work but will definitely try it coz of this 🙂


  7. I’m not much into podcasts. But the Insecuretea sounds like it would be a good one.


  8. I am a late adopter to listening to podcasts. Basically, I don’t come out of my comfort zone and try new things unless it’s food. I like what I like and “listening” to the opinions of others on issues I could really care less about is not my idea of a great time. But I am often asked if I have heard of one podcast or another. One day, I might give it a go. I am just not there yet.


  9. I’ve recently been getting into podcasts and everyone I know loves The Read and Frienzone. I’ve been listening to Angela Yee’s Lip Service lately. A little risque but still very funny

    Ok I am about to go get each and every one of those, and I am mad I didn’t know about them! I was just thinking about Kid Fury yesterday, no idea he had a podcast.

    I just started getting into podcasts maybe 2 months ago. A coworker told me about The Read and I hadn’t remembered hearing about it. Then I went to listen to an episode and it totally clicked. I LOVE Kid Fury. I had been following him on YT for several years when he was pretty actively posting. I forgot that he used to mention his podcast. I’m late to the party but I’m hereee to stay now lol
