My cousin and I have turned our weekly catch-up phone call into a podcast.
We want to be part of fostering a culture of honesty, empathy and foolery because our friendship has shown us that we are often not alone in the thoughts we have and emotions we feel, from the serious to the silly. And even in the moments the other person can't relate, we are still met with love.
So now, our open conversations are open to you, and maybe you'll hear some of yourself in us too. Learn more at areyoumepodcast.com.
Are You Self-Righteous?
Happy new president, America! Back in October before you decided to get a new president, the forces threatening to destroy your democracy were already moving mad, and we were mad about it, so we ranted about it. Come into #theRUME to hear is us vent about Evangelical Christians (both home and away) who have been sitting firmly in their nonsensical bag of hypocrisy, using their faith to excuse and promote everything from discrimination to misogyny. We go there on abortion and toxic brands of masculinity. Fingers crossed, we deal with less of this over the next four years.
Are You Disciplined? Part 2
Oh...you thought that was all? That was only the first round. In part two, we go again but we shift from home to school. We discuss how discipline and cultural expectations shaped our educational experiences - the lessons we learned, the identities we built and the ways these things have stayed with us even into adulthood. Moral of the story: all na scam and no one knows what they're doing.
Join us in #theRUME.
Are You Disciplined? Part 1
"Spare the rod and spoil the child ," they say. Welp...here we are ripe, grown and ready to clap back. This conversation is all about being raised the Nigerian way - with fear, trembling and plenty of cane. We talk about the additional pressures that come with being the first born, first girl, a girl and just existing as a child tbh. And we can't possibly leave out the hot and inexplicable beatings received along the way.
Join us in #theRUME. Don't worry, we'll go easy on you 😏
Are You The Black Sheep?
Baa baa black sheep, have you any wool? No sir, no ma'am, but we do have gist...and that's on Mary had a little lamb! In our toughest conversation yet, we discuss some of the dynamics and challenges we experienced growing up in our families and as part of the same extended family.
This one's about dealing with expectation, pushing through reputation and doing things differently in our generation. We are family, I've still got my cousin with me, and you can join us too.
Our greatest hope is that this conversation helps you have more open conversations about this too. Come into #TheRUME 🧡💛💚
Mini Me: Good Time or Long Time
Would you say yes to love knowing it can't last? In this Mini Me, we discuss an episode of one of our favourite podcasts "Modern Love" that poses this very question. This follows up on a topic we introduced in our end of year conversation "Are You Done, 2020?" so make sure you give that a listen too for the full gist!
P.S. Our Rumies heard this first! Sign up for our newsletter The RUME to join our inner circle and receive special content.
Are You Done, 2020?
2020 was a year for the books, and may the books be burned! In this conversation, we reflect on the highs, lows and weirdness of our year in all areas from family to relationships to just staying alive. We talk about new opportunities, dashed hopes, failed forays, too many tragedies and big girl growth. It's not always fun, but it's certainly better when we do it together.
Honestly we get it if you don't want to do this, we're exhausted from this year too, but we promise we enclosed some little joys and a whole lot of reassurance that you're not alone. Wishing you all the best for 2021. Join us in #TheRUME.
