    Creative Evolutions

    We have all had to find different ways to cope, and for those with creative practices, they are often evolving. For friend of the podcast and artist Kenesha Sneed, that has meant moving among media and the many different roles her art has played in her life - from joyful personal expression to income-generating job to outlet for grief. You may know her design work, her paintings, or her work in clay. Now Kenesha has written and illustrated a children's book, Many Shapes of Clay: A Story of Healing.

Appreciate the conversations

Like others, I prefer the conversational episodes to the interviews, though some interviews are fantastic! For example, this show got my 70 year old mom to start advocating for police abolition.

But mostly I’m here to tell people who have an issue with women saying “like” to chill out and quit being language cops. (I say this as a person with a PhD in English. Language changes! It’s fine!)

They’ve changed, and the show is still great!

I started listening to CYG in 2015, and listening to Ann and Aminatou talk every Friday has become a ritual for me. Just like I have changed, so have they- and honestly, I love it. They put shine theory into action by giving their friends and other experts a platform. They practice what they preach and rest when they feel they should.

One of my favorite duos!

I love Call Your Girlfriend and have been a fan for years. The hosts are both so smart, insightful, and enjoyable to listen to, and their friendship shines through. I’ve gained so much through the guests they choose to interview, the books and shows recommended/reviewed, and the news shared. Highly recommend!
