    Yess to taking breaks and prioritising yourself. I can definitely relate. I’ve been reading Twice as Hard and I’m grateful this book exists as a blueprint for us to navigate our careers. You can get it in all major bookstores. Now back to Sharon.


    I’ve really been watching Sharon on TV throughout my life and it was an honour to learn more about the woman behind all of the characters. You can catch Sharon on Sky One’s Intergalactic from the 30th April. Follow her on Instagram @ShazDB

    Wanna Be Extended- Rebecca Sugar

    Welcome to the Wanna Be Extended- the podcast takes you from where you are now to where you wanna be in the creative and entertainment industry.
    Thank you so much for taking the time to be here! I’m Imriel Morgan, Founder of Content is Queen, a podcast agency and club for ambitious podcasters with phenomenal taste, high expectations and a desire to sound as good as I do now!
    Wanna Be’s focus is to help you take consistent action to build a successful life and career in the creative and entertainment industry.

    I want to introduce you to Rebecca Sugar, who I have been obsessed with for a few years. When I put together my Top 5 guests, Rebecca Sugar was right there. So if you don’t know, Rebecca Sugar is an illustrator, animator and songwriter. She’s most famously known for being the creator of the multi-award-winning Cartoon Network series Steven Universe.
    The focus of this conversation is about building worlds and being the architect of your own destiny. So if you’re currently working hard to pull off your masterpiece, listen carefully and take notes!

    #120 Ibram X. Kendi, Sadiq Khan and Leyya Sattar on Understanding Your Power

    #120 Ibram X. Kendi, Sadiq Khan and Leyya Sattar on Understanding Your Power

    Welcome back to Wanna Be- the podcast takes you from where you are now to where you wanna be in 30 minutes or less.


    I’m Imriel Morgan, Founder of Content is Queen a podcast agency and club for ambitious podcasters with phenomenal taste, high expectations and a desire to sound as good as I do now.


    Thank you so much for taking the time to be here! Wanna Be’s focus is to help you take consistent action to build a successful life and career in the creative and entertainment industry.


    Today I have three exceptional guests who are going to help you:
    - Understand the power of working with other people
    - Overcome restrictions and limitations placed upon you and help you
    - Figure out why it’s necessary to shake things up to achieve growth


    Let’s get into it.


    I’m very excited to bring you my guest today. Author and scholar Dr Ibram X Kendi who is the great mind behind the #1 New York Times bestseller ‘How to be an anti-racist’. Dr Kendi is one of America’s foremost historians and leading antiracist scholars. He is also a contributing writer at The Atlantic and a Racial Justice Contributor at CBS News. 
    The focus of today’s episode is to help you realise the importance of following your instincts when it comes to your career. But also to explore the area’s of your life that need further interrogation and reflection. We also talk about Dr Kendi’s latest book ‘400 Souls’ which is a must-read for anyone interested in the movement for black lives and history!


    We’ll return to Dr Kendi in a moment. I want you to get to know Leyya Sattar who has been in the trenches trying to create an equitable world for BIPOC folx in the UK and around the world. Here’s Leyya.


    I’ve been following Leyya and The Other Box for years and it’s been amazing to see their growth and more importantly the impact they’re making as an organisation. It’s truly remarkable. Be sure to follow The Other Box on Twitter and Instagram @_TheOtherBox. Now Back to Dr Kendi.


    I am feeling very blessed to have spoken to Dr Kendi! I highly recommend getting a copy of 400 Souls which is a very rich tapestry of black history from 1619-2019. It’s full of suspense, trauma, joy, anger, and triumph. It’s well worth the read. You can follow Dr Kendi on Twitter @DrIbram and Instagram @IbramxK


    Before we wrap up, I had the chance to speak with London Mayor Sadiq Khan a little while back and given the themes explored this season I thought it’s worth revisiting what he had to say about the pros and cons of being London Mayor.


    That’s a wrap, thank you so much for listening. I hope this half an hour has made you think, reflect and contemplate what your next step should be.
    I’d like to encourage you to think about one person who would benefit from the messages shared today and I’d love for you to share this episode with them, right now! If you’d like the extended interview with Dr Kendi, all you have to do is screenshot and share this episode to your Instagram stories and tag @contentisqueenhq.


    Until next time…. Byeeee

    #118 Estelle, Kym Oliver and Yrsa Daley-Ward on Owning Your Talent

    Welcome back to Wanna Be- the podcast takes you from where you are now to where you wanna be in 30 minutes or less.

    I’m Imriel Morgan, Founder of Content is Queen, a podcast agency and club for ambitious podcasters with phenomenal taste, high expectations and a desire to sound as good as I do now.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to be here! Wanna Be’s focus is to help you take consistent action to build a successful life and career in the creative and entertainment industry.

    Coming up are three phenomenal guests who are about to help you:
    Find out how stop repelling the things you want
    Learn how to take your influences and create something unique and distinct.
    Discover why nobody can be left behind in the quest to build a just world

    Let’s get into it!

    Today I’m super excited to bring you Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter Estelle.
    You probably know Estelle already but I’m going to introduce her anyway. Estelle is one of the leading voices in Black British RnB. She became infamously known for her chart-topping song American Boy featuring Kanye West. But she’s been knocking out huge hits including 1980, Come Over and Free to name a few. She’s also the voice of Garnet in the multi-award-winning Cartoon Network Steven Universe.

    The focus of this interview is to help you explore all of your talents and interests. The difference between apprehension and being scared. And how to use different influences to create unique and distinct work.

    Do you know how hard it was for me to stay cool! Estelle is iconic to me so to sit down and talk to her about her music that was literally the soundtrack of my teenage years is so wild! She is EVERYTHING! YOu can catch Estelle on Twitter and Instagram @EstelleDarlings She also hosts The Estelle Show on Apple Music so check it out.

    We’ll return to Estelle in just a minute. I have got to interrupt this message to introduce you to the baddest baby girl in the game. This is someone I regularly look up to and I’m constantly inspired by and in awe of. Listen to every word she has to say….

    If you do NOTHING else today, I encourage you to follow The Triple Cripples on Twitter and Instagram @TripleCripples. They are literally doing the work and your support is necessary. Now back to Estelle...

    Before we wrap up I’ve brought back Yrsa Daley Ward the author of 'bone' and 'the terrible'. Yrsa’s advice is food for thought, especially right now.

    Thanks Yrsa! That’s a wrap, thank you so much for listening to the end. I hope this half an hour has been a calming and joyful part of your day.

    I’d like to encourage you to think about one person who needs a little joy and calm and share this episode with them right now! If you want extended interviews, screenshot and share this episode to your Instagram stories and tag @contentisqueenhq.

    Until next time…. Byeeee

Energising

The new season is great. Each guests shared so much. I love it!

vicade2019 ,

Excellent podcast with actual practical and actionable advice

Such an excellent podcast, providing listeners with small nuggets of valuable information that can help you navigate your way to success.

My only critic would be on the adverts, as most times does not seem well timed and often interrupts guest speakers mid-flow, which unfortunately comes across as slightly more amateur. I also think having adverts right at the beginning can throw first time listeners off.

Nevertheless, please keep it up. It is definitely needed particularly within minority communities.
