(BPRW) Podcasts Queer News, Jazmyn Gives Bad Advice, and The Brown Girls Guide to Politics Win Big

Third annual Black Pod Awards gives out 21 awards with three new categories

(Black PR Wire) Brooklyn, NY – Seventeen podcasts shrieked with joy across social media Sunday. They were marveling at winning during the Black Podcasting Awards (the BPAs) third annual ceremony. Three podcasts won big: Queer News swept its three categories: Best New Black Podcast, Best Black News/Informative Podcast, and Best Black LGBTQ Podcast. Jazmyn Gives Bad Advice won both Best Black Comedy as well as Relationship Podcast. And for the third year in a row, The Brown Girls Guide to Politics won Best Black Political Podcast. 

Charismatic Black podcast producer Latrice Sampson Richards hosted the ceremony and aftershow. Prior winners joined her in presenting awards. Viewers delighted in songs by Aria Lanelle, ire ola, and Jus Jon (from 'The Voice' season 2020). 

This year’s awards named 21 winners overall, introducing three new categories with Everrealm Adventures taking home the Blerd award; the brilliant, generous, and pioneering founder of Podcasts in Color ‘Berry’ received the Legend Award; 2022 Business nominee C-CRETS won the Listeners Love Award in a public vote.  

Winning podcasters receive physical awards, one year subscriptions to Black Podcasters Association, and Warm Welcome, one month Grants for Creators newsletter subscriptions, and 50% off tickets to Afros & Audio podcasting festival in October.
