    Ep 205. We Did This to Nkechi Amare Diallo (aka Rachel Dolezal)

    In this episode, Shanti laments after the realization that Philly is wildly segregated while Antoinette's plants teach her yet another life lesson. Together, they examine the authenticity of governments like Cuba's uplifting LGBTQIA families and brands such as M&Ms deep diving into DE&I work. Finally, we discuss Netflix's ethical or unethical approach to the new Jeffrey Dahmer show, transracial pioneer Rachel Dolezal seemingly being forced into Only Fans and Shanti capes for City's Girls' Caresha, and her dreams of becoming the next "Black Oprah" (which makes no sense).

    Ep 204. Everyone Needs Touch

    Ep 204. Everyone Needs Touch

    In this episode, Shanti commits herself to a white woman regimen while Antoinette shares the tragic aftermath of appearing on "The Pineapple Show". Together, we respond to a caller who thinks Shanti's "brown privilege card" should be revoked, while another caller accuses us of aging ourselves. For our main topic, we discuss touch deprivation, our personal experience with it, & the general effects it has on the human brain and psyche. How do we cope? How do we reconnect? How do we ask for touch? Once again we have more questions than answers. Join us...

    Ep 203. Desirability Won't Save Us.

    In this week's episode, Shanti asks the community to rally around a dear friend in need while Antoinette tires from hearing herself talk after recording 3 podcasts in 1 week! Together, we kiki about Atlanta, GOT, and A Different World. For politics we offer resources for Puerto Rico, discuss the crisis in Iran and beg the question: Is there such thing as an equitable billionaire? For pop culture, we dive into the Ime Udoka scandal and highlight some talking points we feel are getting lost in the conversation. Join us.
