Host, The Nod
Gimlet Media

Brittany Luse is co-host of The Nod, a podcast celebrating everything about Black culture, at Gimlet Media. She is the former co-host of For Colored Nerds, an independent podcast about race, news and pop culture, which eventually became The Nod at Gimlet. She hails from Farmington Hills, Michigan and is a very proud graduate of Howard University.

Compulsive Twitterer/ Tumblrer, Brittany has well-documented love-hate relationships with Kanye West, Washington, DC and most technology, but she has never met a Twilight Zone episode or Beyoncé performance she didn’t like. In addition to food, fashion and film, Brittany is passionate about media representation, public access to art and working with young people. In her spare time, she can be found eating tacos, calling her parents or texting from her iPad.
