Here For It Podcast is proud to announce they are celebrating one year anniversary and will be speaking at The Age of The Digital Griot Podcast Conference in Washington, DC April 27 to April 28. The podcast’s mission is to educate the audience about LGBT mental and sexual health and entertain along the way. The show is hosted by sex specialist Martell ‘TheeSupaman’ Todd and culture blogger Ronald Matters, who utilize their vast knowledge to provide listeners with information that impacts their lives and well-being. In just one year, the show has been named Podcasts in Color “Top 100 Podcasts of 2017” and “Top LGBT Podcasts 2017”.
Segments in each episode include “Social Studies” to cover stories that impact minority communities slammed by the current president’s latest tweets and actions (or lack thereof), and “Sexual Health” to explore current trends and disband common myths.
Here For It Podcast just crossed fifty thousand downloads and Medium.com featured them in 8 sex-positive podcasts listeners should have in their ear.
When asked what drives him Martell says, “One of my main life missions is normalizing black gay men to the world and proving that we all aren’t ultra-feminine, wig and makeup wearing, slutty, stunt queens. There’s nothing wrong with being any or all of the above, but we can make other versions of gay men mainstream and break with the current tradition.”
When asked what has been the most popular topic on the podcast and why he thinks it resonated with the audience, Martell responds – “Our ‘Empty Condoms’ episode stirred the pot a lot! Talking about the ‘stealthing’ that goes on in gay and hetero sex got people talking and Googling so I was very proud of that.”
Here for It Podcast is a platform that provides so many benefits for the black LGBT community. The strength of the show relies very much on the commentary of the hosts, their witty episode titles, and the issues discussed, which usually reflects on real issues that many queer face in their daily lives. The show is also very much entertaining, making it a fun and exciting time for listeners.
Ronald and Martell will also be discussing Podcasting for Social Change next month with We The Culture Podcast Collective at The Innovator’s Studio DC. Tickets and more information can be found on EventBrite.
