    The Community Recipe ft. Tabitha Brown

    The Community Recipe ft. Tabitha Brown

    Whether we’re adding the key ingredient to that secret family dish or being the key ingredient in our communities, Black women have the recipe! As we prepare to gather around the table this holiday season it’s time to talk about how we nurture ourselves and how our food nourishes our mind, body and soul. In this episode, we're also taking a look at some of the empty calories that do not contribute to our success. Because overall, we want the recipe to continue to serve us! To add more flavor and spices, we have special guest Tabitha Brown who will share her career, her fundamentals for success (and the kitchen), and how bringing joy to her community led her to her purpose.
    Thanks for tuning in this season - we'll be back soon!

    Too Many Pigeons In America ft. Chidi Ashley

    With Summer ghosting us, Fall sending “you up?” texts and America doing America we ask ourselves: Is it time to slide? Black people across the globe are leaving urban areas and going rural and remote to find peace and balance: So should we? On this episode we’re packing bags and figuring out where do we want to live, is it safe for us there and what are our responsibilities to these countries and communities. We’ll also get a visit from our 8 figure sista, entrepreneur and travel expert Chidi Ashley. She’ll share tips for getting that visa, how to travel ethically and which country she’s not pulling up to anytime soon.

    Invest In Thyself Pt 2: Pleasure Principle ft. Shan Broodram

    We are back with part two of Invest in Thyself. We hope you made those deposits to grow your personal, platonic and romantic portfolios.
    But today, let’s cue the 90’s soundtrack, "Let’s talk about Sex, Baby!" Black women, have been over-sexualized for decades, yet understanding pleasure and sexual exploration remains taboo. Today, we are pushing boundaries! We are having a healthy discussion around safety, kinks, partnership and communication.
    We couldn’t just have one guest for this, we brought in a Unbothered Alum, Kourtney Pope of Don’t Yuck My Yummm. Then, to heat things up even more, we have the “Dr. Ruth Meets Rihanna,” Shan Broodram, sexologist and host of the Lover’s & Friends Podcast. Shan is answering listener questions, redefining healthy sex, and empowering people to be their own sex and relationships experts.

    Invest In Thyself Pt 1: Relationships ft. Joy Ofodu

    Is it time to cash in!? Today, we are going to the bank, in a two-part series called Invest in ThySelf! As the season changes and the days become shorter, it is inevitable that we will hear the phrase CUFFING SEASON.
    We are kicking off, part one of “Invest In Thyself,” discussing and rethinking how we invest in interpersonal and external connections. What are we doing before entering into romantic relationships? How do we invest in maintaining healthy relationships and are we shifting to prioritize friendships over romance as the cornerstone of our emotional support? Joining the Unbothered roundtable, we have actress and content creator, Joy Ofodu shaking the table as usual in a variety of voices and sharing her new web-series Hard Launch.

    Black Sweat: Women in Sports ft. Nneka Ogwumike

    Whether, it’s Serena with the left, Simone with the flip or Sha’Carri with the swift, Black women continue to put in the work within sports and the culture. Flowers are far overdue and the list continues to grow as Black women put in both mental and physical sweat, equity and labor within the sports industry. On this episode, we're shedding light on our women in sports and the problematic concerns around pay, player treatment and personal style despite their dedication to the craft. Our special guest is the passionate, smart and talented Nigerian-American WNBA Player of the LA Sparks and President of the WNBPA, Nneka Ogwumike. She shares her long career journey, how a “little” advocacy goes a long way and the effects of what happens when you give women space to use their voices in the sports industry.

    The Season of Finesse ft. Kali

    The Season of Finesse ft. Kali

    The Unbothered crew is shaking the table as we enter a new season. Some might call it The Season of Toxicity, some may call it The Summer of Scams, The Fall of the Finesse or A Season of Reparations. Whatever, you call it.....tis this season to live your best life, sis!
    No matter what side of the table you are on - scams are always around us, and as we talk about finesse as a concept, why does it always look different for Black women? Is it wrong to get flewed out by your Fairy God Sugar Daddy? Should a man pay for all of your friends at a group dinner? Unfortunately, this is not a tutorial or the recipe, but surely entertaining! Our special guest, viral sensation, XXL Freshman Class of 2022, artist & songwriter, Kali brings all the tricks, treats and toxic chocolate! Kali shares how she got her start in the music industry, why tunnel vision is so important to her and how she is focused on a season of fun.
