Feel like you’ve exhausted every board game, baked every type of bread possible, and streamed the whole of Netflix? Banish the lockdown boredom by listening to these five amazing podcasts that explore the mixed race experience.
Some Kind of Brown
Hosted by Natalie Evans, Some Kind of Brown is a safe space for people of all mixes and backgrounds.
As a multiracial woman, having grown up on the ‘Bible Belt’ of the Southern USA, Natalie shares her experiences and chats with a range of special guests on mixed issues.
“My hope is that this page will grow to be a little piece of “home” for all of us– a place to share and verbalize our own experiences with one another– because no matter your mix, you will always find solidarity here at Some Kind of Brown.”Natalie Evans
Some Kind of Brown’s latest podcasts collaborate with Soph from Mixed Present, a popular Instagram account which is run by and for mixed people.

Sharmane ‘MixedGirlMane’ Fury runs Militantly Mixed, a podcast which is centered on identity and race from a mixed race perspective.
Militantly Mixed podcasts cover everything from intersectional feminism, multiracial families, hair, and genral life being mixed! You can even get Militantly Mixed clothing for those mega fans out there.

The Mixed Theory podcast was created to celebrate the grey area of being neither black nor white, but both. Hosted by Amber Phoenix, Mixed Theory explores interracial relationships, identity, education, and the mixing of different cultures.
“You are a magical mixture of both your father and your mother; their ancestry and ethnical heritage is packaged within you and displayed for all to see. Mixed Theory wants to encourage you to harness all that genetically makes you, you.”Amber Phoenix – Mixed Theory
Special guests on the show include community outreach advocates and mixed individuals who discuss their ancestry and unique perspectives.
The podcast mxdflz (mixed-feels) was created by a group of professional creatives with academic backgrounds in philosophy, psycho-analysis, and race and gender studies. They craft stories, art and ideas that draw on a series of non-binary issues.
As well as a podcast, there is a Mxdflz blog with think pieces from multiracial perspectives on rarely discussed topics.
