Life According To Her presents #popofcolorpodcast, the first and only directory showcasing the voices of more than 100 black women in the rapidly growing audio medium of podcasting. #popofcolorpodcast is a one stop-shop for exploring new podcasts in categories including: health & nutrition, business, self-help, society & culture, religion & spirituality, personal journals and comedy.
“I’ve been an avid listener of podcasts over the years for both personal and professional development, so once I entered the space with my own show I felt a need to highlight voices that are largely overlooked,” said Ahyiana Angel, Chief Encourager at Life According To Her. “The #popofcolorpodcast directory was created from an idea that one hashtag on social media could connect a community of voices, be a means for exploring, help share stories and further our growth through continued learning.”
Listeners and podcast creators alike are encouraged to utilize the #popofcolorpodcast across Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to share what they are listening to and creating. One hashtag opening up an expanded world of audio, on-demand entertainment for millions. The directory includes a variety of listening options with everything from notable shows like Another Round with Heben & Tracy to emerging shows like Essence magazine’s Yes, girl! and the feel good vibes of Black Girl In Om.
Research shows that 57 million Americans are listening to podcasts monthly. However, podcasting is a medium that has largely been dominated by white males. In celebration of Women’s History Month, we aim to introduce audiences to new and familiar voices in podcasting.
The cornerstone of the Life According To Her message is women supporting women, collaboration over competition, which is why we partnered with Nicole Clark Founder of I Find It Incredible to develop the cover imagery of the #popofcolorpodcast directory exemplifying strength and sisterhood. IFindItIncredible.com is a movement highlighting a lifestyle that celebrates the black woman’s narrative tapping into relatable, raw, authentic and realistic sisterhood.
