Today on The Feat. we’re featuring the cool and nerdy podcast Black Girl Nerds.
Black Girl Nerds is a podcast devoted to promoting nerdiness among black women and people of color. They foster a strong community and since of self to let anyone (not just black women) let their geek flag fly. They’re also kind of a big deal and are well connected in the entertainment field so they are able to get tons of celebrity interviews and make set visits to major motion pictures like Black Panther for their show. It’s like Entertainment Tonight for blerds.
Hosted by Jamie Broadnax who started the entire BGN movement and has been blogging in 2007. She named this site Black Girl Nerds because “The concept of Black women as geeky-dorky beings is somewhat of an anomaly. It’s against the order of things in the “Black Girl” world. We represent a wide array of diverse women who embrace all cultures and refuse to conform to the status quo.”
This is a podcast for every nerdy girl that can finally come out of the closet and tell the world that they are PROUD to be who they are—no matter what anyone says, does, or think. And it’s called Black Girl Nerds because it is a term that is so unique and extraordinary, that even Google couldn’t find a crawl for the phrase and its imprint in the world of cyberspace. The mission is to put an end to that and know that many Black Girl Nerds exist on this planet.
