Be “Humble” : Episode 12

Today we are talking bodies, specifically black women’s bodies, including all the stretch marks, fake arses and afro hair. Listen as Mo & Jay dissect the recent controversy surrounding Kendrick Lamar’s hit song “Humble” and ask the question is it anti-feminist for a man to proclaim he prefers “natural” women? Also adding to the mix our views on Tyrese (self-proclaimed beauty expert) thoughts on what he thinks women should like look.

Male misogyny or too much sensitivity?….let’s talk about it!

Will I be ok if I never have children?…… Single Women and Babies: Episode 10

Will I be ok if I never have children?…… Single Women and Babies: Episode 10

On this week’s episode Mo and Jay share their honest thoughts about being single and wanting children.

“You spend most of your 20s trying not to get pregnant, then you hit 30 and it feels like a race to the bottom……..”

Listen as we explore the taboo of saying as a woman “I don’t want children” and why people then demand you explain and qualify your decision. The external influence from those around you and does being in an African family intensify the pressure?

Highlights of the week include Jay’s mini movie review of new film “Love by the 10th Date”, staring Meagan Good, Kellee Stewart, Keri Hilson and Kelly Rowland. Whilst Mo gives a shout-out to Ms Serena Williams (greatest female athlete of all time) on her baby announcement.

“Get out” …….  With Those Twitter Fingers: Episode 8

“Get out” ……. With Those Twitter Fingers: Episode 8

Jay is away this week as she is currently adding more stamps to her ever expanding passport (listen to Ep 5, Black Women Travel Too). However the show must go on, therefore Mo is joined by alternative co-host and friend of the show Paul Samuels, founder of Sonjo Media. Paul has taken time out from creating amazing content to add his unique voice and prospective to the podcast.

This week’s main discussion explores the complexities of African American Vs Black British culture. The debate was initiated on twitter and the blogs following the recent comments of Samuel L Jackson, querying the casting of Black British actor, Daniel Kaluuya in the hit social-horror “Get Out,” in the lead role.
Then Drake dropped his new album “More Life” featuring UK artists such as Giggs and the debate was again reignited.
Listen as Mo and Paul discuss and dissect, including their musical influences and try to clarify what is to be “Black and British”
