Toronto is a multicultural hotspot. But the diversity that makes the city special isn’t often reflected in the stories we hear and the discussions we have. Black Tea will change that. Dalton Higgins and Melayna Williams are here to bring important and uncomfortable Black community conversations out in the open, and to have some laughs while doing it.

Boss moves with Tracy Moore
Mel and Dalton sit down with media maven Tracy Moore to talk about her daytime talk show, entrepreneurism, family life, social media and being a boss.
Thank you for being REAL! It’s so refreshing to have one’s thoughts out in the open. As a blk person, there is no time like the NOW to speak up and say how we REALLY feel. As you always say UNAPOLOGETIC.
I’ve learned so much from you all and your guest speakers. Keep it up!
What flavour of tea? Just Black Tea!
The timely and overdue addressing of issues of race and politics is covered by these hosts with fresh perspectives and obvious chemistry. It’s great to see Canadian content at this level and looking forward to Season 3.
Thanks to the host of the big story.
I listened to the entire first season on Sunday. Never heard of this podcast before.
I enjoyed it. The hosts chemistry is amazing, excited about the second season. I will be listening.
Need to hear more of Mel!
