    The One About 'The Secret Lives of Church Ladies' by Deesha Philyaw

    We'd ask if you missed us but we're pretty sure you did. We missed you too and that's why this new episode is an extra long one.

    Get comfy and journey with us as we explore Rebel Women Lit's January book pick: The Secret Lives of Church Ladies by Deesha Philyaw. This masterful collection of stories was an immediate favourite of ours with its textured and hilarious stories, gorgeously written by Deesha.



    We talk about the many layers and looks of grief; how parental relationships shape our lives, love, pleasure and how Jherane relates heavily to "How To Make Love To A Physicist".

    The One About Augustown by Kei Miller

    The One About Augustown by Kei Miller

    How long can you keep down people who were made to fly?
    Augustown is a poetic novel that is grounded in the (hi)story of a prominent preacher and Pan-African activist Alexander Bedward who was said to have claimed that he could fly. Kei Miller reimagined this story as an allegory of the Black Jamaican struggle to EXIST in a society that invalidates their humanity.

    From hairstyles in schools to police officers playing football with guns on their shoulders, Kristina, Ashley and Jherane discuss the ways colonialism and all of his friends continues to be the foundation of modern Jamaica in their review of Augustown.

    Start your chores, start your commute or whatever you usually do while listening to podcasts and chat with us about what the not-so-fictitious happenings of Augustown.

    The One About Read Across Jamaica Day & Libraries

    The One About Read Across Jamaica Day & Libraries

    A short discussion on Jamaica's reading culture, Read Across Jamaica and how the Jamaican libraries are... kind of a mess. Who's up for a #JamaicaReads campaign? -
    One of our favourite kinds of literature is poetry. Its ability to hold the weight of histories, the gamut of human emotions and philosophies in a mere few lines is just *chef's kiss*.
    Now we’re not saying we’re poets...but much like poetry, this new episode is short and sweet. For National Reading Day (celebrated annually on May 4th), we talk about the barriers to a loving relationship with recreational reading and how the Jamaica Library Service's weird rules, such as owning a library card, is a part of that problem (and of course so much more).
    It's the perfect episode to listen to while you detangle your hair or make yourself some breakfast.
