Podcasts are the latest trend in entertainment, as you can find a podcast for just about every special interest there is—after all, there are great true crime podcasts, motivational podcasts, pop culture podcasts, history podcasts, and more. But more so than keeping up with iconic serial killers or learning the latest developments in your fave reality TV show, podcasts can also be excellent news sources when it comes to politics.
Whether you consider yourself well-educated when it comes to politics or a total political newbie, tune into any one of the best political podcasts listed below as an easy, hands-free way to keep up-to-date on today’s current political climate.
5. The Brown Girls’ Guide to Politics
Because politics—and therefore, political-themed podcasts—should reflect the communities they impact, there’s The Brown Girls’ Guide to Politics. Hosted by A’shanti F. Gholar, this podcast is a podcast for Black and brown women, by Black and brown women. The goal of the podcast is to provide a safe space for women of color to “read up” or listen up, in this case, to what they need to know about a space historically ruled by old, white men.
