    Episode 20 -The Art Of 2020 (So far...)

    Congratulations! You have successfully passed level 364 of the year 2020. It is now September and this feels like the longest 9 months of life. It's been heavy y'all and we at BWC had decided to take a step back to take care of ourselves and loved ones. But we're back again! Thank you for your patience and sticking with us. 
    This week we talk about all the craziness of 2020 so far, how we've been coping and most importantly remembering and reflecting on the life of the talented, humble, brilliant, ambitious, wise and impactful life artist, Chadwick Boseman. The sudden and devastating news impacted all of us, especially the Black community. His legacy will live on forever and will continue to be the real life Superhero for all of us. Rest in Power.
