    Episode 40 - The Dating Game

    Episode 40 - The Dating Game

    Is that the part two, the sister episode, the sequel of A Love Anthology? Why, yes it is! Hafsa and Istahil continue the conversations and ask their guests about how they perceive and experience dating. From finding someone you fancy to shooting your shot to first dates to dating apps. We got optimism, we got pessimism, we got straight up depressionism.
    Tune in for a rollercoaster of an episode.

    1 or 3 Dates? - Spirit of Ramadan ft Khadijah Thomas

    1 or 3 Dates? - Spirit of Ramadan ft Khadijah Thomas

    We're back after disappearing for a month. We decided to start with our 1 or 3 dates series early this year! 1 or 3 dates is our annual Ramadan series. This episode was sponsored by Ramadan & Juliette.

    In this episode, we have Khadijah Thomas, founder of Ramadan & Juliette (a small Black Muslim-owned Ramadan decorations shop). She told us about the inception of Ramadan and Juliette and the importance of getting into the spirit of Ramadan. We are always hyper-aware of the Holiday (Christmas) spirit, but how often do we make an active effort to feel Ramadan before its arrival? We talk about that and much more.

mivisuals heh ,

Consistent Queens

You guys have been dropping quality and meaningful content consistently for a good couple years now and as a fellow podcaster I know how difficult it can be. It’a been good to hear yall thoughts on anything and everything, gives me a lot to think about and this first episode into the decade really got me deeping life but in a good way. Keep up the good work and may Ramadan be a blessed month for all of you.
