Hello friends!

As some of you may know, I have a day job to support me until my blogging dreams are fulfilled and I can more than survive on writing and speaking. But, for now - it's the drudgery of office life. I don't really have anyone to talk to at the office. People work and keep to themselves. I've turned to listening to podcasts for company. How sad is that? My friends at the office are in my ears. The upside is, I've discovered some really cool podcasts which I thought I'd share with you.

Stay cool and enjoy your July!

Three Current Fave Podcasts

1. Another Round - You may have come across hosts Tracy Clayton and Heben Nigatu on Buzzfeed for which both are contributors. These ladies are hilarious and cover pop culture and current events with wit, fun and thoughtfulness. I look forward to hearing their show every Tuesday!
2. This Week in Blackness - Don't let the title scare you. TWIB (as it's known by it's enthusiastic fans) discusses social, political and cultural issues from a black perspective. They've been at the forefront of on the ground coverage of today's social justice movement. It's not all serious though, the host and TWIB CEO Elon James is a member of a comedy troupe. The shows airs M-Th.
3. The Moth Radio Hour - this podcast has been around for awhile, but I only recently discovered it. I enjoy it so much that I went to one of their live StorySLAM evenings earlier this year. If you enjoy rich storytelling, this podcast is worth checking out.

Reader Comment of the Month

In response to last month's I Don't Really Care About Buying a House, Janet wrote:

"I used to be obsessed with watching HGTV and particularly with the dream of home buying in a foreign country. That is not something I could ever do, as it requires good health, courage, and chutzpa. I have none of those things.

I bought a home the first time, because I was imitating the behavior of my friends. One of them said they were buying a house, because they did not want to ‘throw away’ their money on rent. "
