I actually wrote this post sometime last year and I recently went to update it and somehow the graphics got messed up so I had to delete the entire post. Anyway, I looove podcast! I became obsessed with them 2 years aho and I have favorites for every aspect of my life: the mom, the woman, a Black woman in America, the creative, the business,and the Christian. Like, I owe alot of my growth as an adult to listening to other people’s perspectives and journeys in life. My blog is mostly about being a mother so of course I have a lot of podcasts about that.The thing that all of these podcasts have in common is that all of these moms are honest about the not so great aspects of motherhood. They put themselves out there and I admire that so much.Here are some of my faves(no specific order)If you have any that you think I would like, do leave that in the comments.
