    Taraji P. Henson

    Taraji P. Henson

    This week on Angie Martinez IRL Podcast, her girl Taraji P. Henson joins her for a candid conversation that only two close friends could have.

    Taraji didn’t sign up for fame, she signed up to create art as she believes art has the power to change and affect lives. But what happens when she looks in the mirror and doesn’t feel like she can provide that lift anymore? When things she thought made her happy don't cut it anymore? She has to go on her own journey to find happiness.

    But Taraji isn't alone, Angie reveals her own moments of darkness and the awakening she experienced on a trip with Taraji. The two explain what it means to fight for your joy and digest the importance of friends who can save your life.

    Their convo also explores managing social media addictions in a healthy way, unshakable faith, and a debate over the importance and need of ego.

    In the words of Taraji, If you have a story to tell, tell it.

    This is an episode you won’t want to miss. 

    This week on Angie Martinez IRL Podcast, Angie is coming to you live from one of the most zen places on earth… Kim Kardashian’s office. Kim has a “big life” full of tons of opinions but has somehow mastered remaining calm mentally and emotionally despite it all. She admits she doesn’t look at comments, is open to self-correction, and believes in the room for redemption but reveals that the robbery in Paris is what really shifted her values in a major way. 

    Everyone is going through something in real life, Kim Kardashian included. In this episode, Kim shares how the memories of her own father help her keep it together for her kids and continue to be what leads her in her very complex co-parenting journey.  

    Despite all that’s happening around her, she makes time where there is often none, is dedicated to helping others, and admits to truly feeling at peace. Kim Kardashian is free, having fun, and enjoying dating, even if it means various forms of dating in the house.

    IRL Take Aways: Mike Tyson

    IRL Take Aways: Mike Tyson

    Mike Tyson may be one of the most interesting people walking the Earth and we must protect him. 

    We’re back with another IRL #TakeAways. The in-between audio-only podcast where Angie and special guests reflect on episode responses, takeaways, and highlights. 

    Does anyone else believe that when someone says something that resonates with you so much you feel it in your spirit, that it somehow shows up later in your life? The conversation Mike Tyson and Angie had about Angels resonated with Angie so much she is convinced she may have run into her own angel, Debbie, from South Jersey. 

    But that’s not it!  On this week’s #TakeAways Angie also connects with psycologoist and trauma expert,  Dr. Mariel Bouquet to discuss rage, brain scans, and meditation as a solution.

    IRL Take Aways: Usher

    We’re back with another IRL #TakeAways. The in-between audio-only podcast where Angie and special guests reflect on episode responses, takeaways, and highlights. 

    Usher put on a master class on therapy techniques, and Angie is here for it! 

    In this episode, Angie taps psychologist and trauma expert Dr. Mariel Bouquet to dig in a little deeper.  Dr. Bouquet shares the benefits of Transcendental Meditation, explores the difference between ordinary suffering and deep suffering, and points out Usher’s emotional neutrality. 

    From Transcendental Meditation to Mindful listening techniques, Usher has clearly done the work to be a happy, communicative partner. Solid work. We all should be like Usher.

Bringing my back to NYC

Definitely enjoy your podcast. You’re authentic and absolutely clear with your purpose. Thank you for your amazing podcast. I have lived outside of NYC for about 6 years now; listening to your podcast brings me back to taking the train from Brooklyn to the City for work. Continue the amazing work!

Real - Inspiring - Entertaining - Easy listen

Angie’s interviews are like two friends having a normal conversation. Talking about real life topics with high profile people. You feel like you’re sitting at the table with them. You can relate.

I love the authenticity and listening to Angie navigate her own personal growth. I needed a podcast that held space for the REAL! Love it.
