    BMM 143: You Make Me Laugh

    Listen to us on: Youtube | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Google Podcasts.

    Will you laugh until you cry? Mikey and Randie did. Like, real tears while hearing each other read the funniest stories they could find on the internet.

    After all, it can't all be doom and gloom--can it? No one can stay down forever, and the Chapmans believe that. There were many many times they never thought they'd see the sun shine after Noble passed away, but then . . . something would make them laugh.

    So tune in for this feel good episode, Randie and Mikey are certain you'll enjoy it.

    Later, Mikey brings a fight or flight that makes no sense to the Mrs. But in the end, it's all love when they show each other some PDA--some spicy PDA, they might add.

    As always the Chapmans thank y'all for listening to this very special season.

    Remember to rate and review them 5 stars if you enjoy this and every other episode. It means more than you know!

    BMM Indie 141: Mothering Myself

    BMM Indie 141: Mothering Myself

    Listen to us on: Youtube | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Google Podcasts

    Randie’s stuck on a roller coaster that sends her round and round on a ride of hating herself, shaming herself, and blaming herself for Noble’s death. At least that’s what her therapist says.

    But why? Why can’t Randie just be sad and mourn without beating herself up?

    A phone call days before Noble’s birth may give a hint to the answer.

    Tune in as the mother half of the Black Millennial Marriage Podcast details revealing the truth to her therapist and discusses what it means to finally believe she is worthy.

    It’s a wild thing, but somehow grief and her children are teaching Randie to mother herself.

    Listen to us on: Youtube | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Google Podcasts

    It’s been a long time since Mikey has dropped an Indie and if you think he’s been stalling, he has. Still, while it’s hard, the father half of the BMM Podcast knows not talking about Noble is not an option.

    Join him as he details why it’s hard to talk about his deceased son, how he fears he’s just too angry, and worries that no one cares. Later, he discusses the ways he’s been taking care of himself in an effort to get himself out of his hole. After all, he did promise Noble that he would try.

    As always Mikey is grateful for the people tuning in for this special season and he hopes it encourages someone to open up about their grief.

YOU are worthy of so many great things!

Randiiiiiiiii,
This by far was your absolute best indie. As always, your transparency about your feelings and where you are in life help me to feel normal and show me that I’m not alone.I cried with you and for you throughout this episode, because I too have a black mom and am a black mom. I understood and felt your pain through your words. You are an amazing woman, wife, and mother. Please don’t let anyone or anything make you feel otherwise. I love the new work you are putting in to you. Keep fighting for you girlfriend. YOU GOT THIS!♥️

Randie is my “internal” twin

So many of Randie’s feelings and revelations are most of the things I have felt and/or learned in the past and recently. I love you girl. Mikey!!!!!! You are a complete fool. You keep me laughing. I love you guys, so sorry about your loss. It definitely hits a familiar nerve. Sending well wishes and virtual hugs your way. Please keep it up, I enjoy you guys so much and you inspire me more than you can know.
