    Love is love...right? For this episode of the podcast, via Simone facilitated healthy dialogue with three different folks with three very different perspectives on interracial dating and relationships. Bridget is currently in an interracial relationship with a white man. Catherine is a product of an interracial relationship and has her own personal thoughts on dating outside of your race. Johnny is completely against interracial relationships for a specific reason. Listen to the episode in full to hear potentially changed mindsets. Where do you land on this topic and how do you feel about it?

    "Do It For Your Grams" ft. @via.simone

    For this quick & dirty solo episode, via Simone touches on a few key points that will have a direct affect on our communities: this upcoming election and the rise of Clubhouse. Both matters have the ability to change the entire landscape of our current black, creative, and prosperous lives as we know it. Let's get into it.

    Go vote. Wear a mask. Take a break. All black lives matter.

    Bonnets & Durags Podcast returns after a mini hiatus. This time around, Simone gathered her fellow podcasting friends Ti, Lashawn, and John together for a real ass conversation about commitment, compromise, and consistency in relationships and beyond. Each guest dives into what dating with intent means, what a good man/woman is, what love looks like for them currently and how they hope to grow with it moving forward.

The Original Black Man ,

Name of the show is brilliant

This show is all that and a bag of chips!

Everything I didn’t know I needed

It’s the range, VULNERABILITY, jokes, and spicy content for me!!!!! It’s so easy to cling on to every word. Everything I’ve learned has made me much more aware about the world around me. I love that I can connect with each person on the show in some way but also gain some perspective on views different from my own. This podcast is everything I didn’t know I needed.

REAL!!!

Loved every episode!
