The Depth & Candor podcast explores how change-makers of color define and live out their purpose through their careers, side hustles, and entrepreneurial contributions. I’m your host, Hiwote Getaneh, and I’m thrilled to take you with me as I talk to these innovators about what it really takes to do good work and live a life you love. Join me each week as I talk to guests like Jovian Zayne, founder of the “On Purpose” Movement; Myleik Teele, founder and CEO of CurlBOX; and Sherryl Dorsey, technology journalist, social entrepreneur, and the founder of ThePLUG daily.
Joy, Agency, and Press-On Nails
One of the biggest threats to a dominant white supremacist culture is Black ppl living their most joyful self-sufficient lives.

In this episode, we explore what tool one woman uses to rise above the BS.
Joy & Pain: My New Focus for Depth & Candor
I quit my job at AFROPUNK in September of 2019 to start producing podcasts part time while I built Depth & Candor into a business - but turns out the fantasy of working for yourself and actually working for yourself are two totally different things. I’m collecting my lessons and pivoting my focus for this little digital corner of the internet. Listen in to learn what this new season of the episode will be all about.

Yes to the new path of being Blacks and joyful
