On YNF Entertainment Magazine, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, Black Girl BurnOut Podcast from Kelley Bonner gives black women healing tools that help them opt out of the pain of burnout.
Black Girl BurnOut Podcast
The podcast that Bonner produces is a component of a larger movement that aims to assist Black women in overcoming burnout and utilizing tools that can assist them in opting out of the things that prevent them from leading lives that are full of joy. This mission will continue into season two, which will air on all major streaming services—Spotify, Apple, Google, iHeartRadio, and Stitcher—on January 23, 2023, at 8:00 a.m. EST.
The second season will discuss a wide range of pertinent topics, including how to avoid burnout, love and relationships, work-life balance, racial trauma, family dynamics, and setting boundaries.
Black Girl BurnOut ranks among the top 1% of all global-reaching podcasts. The United States, South Africa, the United Kingdom, Canada, and the Netherlands make up the top five countries. At its peak, downloads range from 15 to 19 thousand per month on average. This demonstrates that Black Girl Burnout is more than just a podcast; it is also a movement of women actively looking for ways to choose healing over burnout.
“I launched a podcast and got 100k downloads and 20k subscribers in less than 10 months,” said Kelley Bonner. “The Black Girl BurnOut Podcast was born out of conversations with the Black women I love and their struggles with burnout in all areas of their life (at home with family, in their career, against racism and sexism, unfulfilling friendships, and disappointing romantic partnerships).
The podcast was created to address this and provide an alternative to struggle. A Black woman can instead opt out of situations, people, and events that cause her pain and distract her from her potential. The podcast provides a safe space to heal from burnout, to let go of historical and cultural myths that perpetuate struggle and instead, opt-into our cultural legacy of joy, abundance, and community.”
Kelley Bonner helps Black women overcome the trauma caused by historical lies that keep them believing they were meant to struggle, in addition to her experience working with organizations to transform toxic workplaces into spaces of productivity and inclusion. The podcast, which airs on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, teaches listeners how to deal with burnout in just 15 minutes by breaking down difficult tasks into manageable chunks.
Bonner has big plans for the future: she wants to expand her consulting to help top companies market to diverse audiences, especially Black women, and come up with ways to make innovation and inclusion more common. Bonner will increase community involvement and provide a setting for discussions about Black women’s unique lived experiences as the podcast grows in popularity.
