    Throwbacks and Never Coming Back Ft. Danielle Cadet Wiggins & Misa Hylton

    Throwbacks and Never Coming Back Ft. Danielle Cadet Wiggins & Misa Hylton

    This is not a mirage sis, WE ARE BACK for an extra special bonus episode that’s full of all the old school feels! The OG Go Off, Sis fam is back together and we’re talking about everything that’s at the intersection of now and memory lane. We’re diving into the '90s trends that deserve a revisit, from the fashion and culture, to a real conversation about how Black women were portrayed in our fave films and R&B songs. From Waiting to Exhale, to Jodeci and SWV, we talk things we love, the toxic themes we’re leaving behind, and why even our old school faves could have used therapy. Then, we sit down with forever icon and stylist Misa Hylton who tells us about her start in fashion, how she demanded respect in the Wild West of '90s hip hop, and why she’s the best HR manager we’ve ever met.

    Black Comedy, Joy and Group Therapy ft. Lala Milan

    Black Comedy, Joy and Group Therapy ft. Lala Milan

    There is so much going on in the world and most of the time, life is just NOT funny and can be heavy, especially for us. We see the passing of icons, continued police brutality against young Black women and men, and there's still a pandemic. Laughter has been our medicine! Today, we're talking Black comedy, belly laughs and how we push through the pain. We also dive into the joy of Group Therapy aka the Group Chat.


    And as we close out the season, we're letting you yes, you - GO OFF SIS! We listened to your messages, rants, glow-ups, and “tell em why you mad” audio and shared our faves! Lala Milan, our favorite funny girl to follow, joins the roundtable to give her *on point* advice for our audience, share her Private Investigator super skills, and tell us why she's never going back to corporate America.

    Mercury in Micro Braids ft. Marsai Martin

    Mercury in Micro Braids ft. Marsai Martin

    It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Ok, not really! It is Spring, but Mercury is in another retrograde or micro braid or even the 90’s flat-twist with the thick black gel. Remember!? However, Spring is also a great time for personal housekeeping, so we're pushing through and cleansing our mental, physical, and emotional palettes. We're talking about taking big leaps asking how are we restoring, reinventing, and spiritually recalibrating this season? Then, we chat with the youngest boss in the game, Executive Producer and Actress Marsai Martin for a conversation on those BIG leaps. We take a deep dive into her career, her #NoBlackPain project rule, taking a break, and that Big Leo Energy!

    You're Gonna Get This Look ft. Ade Samuel

    You're Gonna Get This Look ft. Ade Samuel

    Black women are THEE trendsetters and always have been, so we're talking all things fashion and giving flowers to our fashionable selves! The trends we loved, the ones we hope never make a comeback, and the history of Black expression and cultural appropriation. But real talk, what's in your closet? This episode, we're asking ourselves: do we even need more clothes, are there really ‘Stimi-check” sales, can we be more sustainable, and why exactly does Black luxury feel like such a foreign concept? Then we sit down with powerhouse Fashion Stylist, Ade Samuel, who answers our burning questions on her career, how to build an ecosystem of Black creatives in the fashion industry, and styling on a budget. Sidebar: she has adorned and dressed our imaginary ex-boyfriends Michael B. Jordan AND Kofi Siriboe! Faint.

    Planes, Trains, Automobiles and Anxiety ft. Jessica Franklin

    Planes, Trains, Automobiles and Anxiety ft. Jessica Franklin

    This past year, you’ve dreamed of sun-soaked beaches and getting flewed out. You’ve spent months planning that post-panini trip, and gave side eyes to everyone who headed to the airport, because look, so did WE. So, this episode, we’re talking travel, because even though we’re not going anywhere just *yet*, we can dream. 
    From our earliest memories of hitting the open road to our current fears, and anxiety surrounding it, we’re breaking down the specific experience of traveling as a Black woman. We’ll also be chatting with Digital Creator and travel aficionado Jessica Franklin to talk about the places where we’re celebrated, the best international pick up lines she’s curved, and why she needs a two weeks notice if the next destination has water.

    Are We Home Yet? ft. The McBride Sisters

    Are We Home Yet? ft. The McBride Sisters

    Turn left, now turn right….do you like your home? If we’ve learned anything over this past year it’s that our homes – and feeling at home –  can play a major part in our overall happiness. In this custom episode, we’re not bringing the receipts, but we’re reading them very closely to figure out why home is so important to us, many first and second-generation families, and our community, but we still don’t know how to even go about buying one. We’re also talking to Robin and Andréa of The McBride Wine Collection, two sisters who found home within each other, before becoming the largest Black-owned wine company EVER, and showing that Black Girl Magic isn’t just a catchy phrase, but also an international best selling business.

Hmm 🤔

I’m listening to the L.O.U.D. Episode as part of an equity challenge through a partnership with my local community college and the YWCA.

I’m curious what exactly you want “others” to do?

Though I’m a born & raised white, mid-western, middle class, he toro-sexual white woman, at 24 I became Muslim and experienced going from the majority to a minority within a minority. In 20 years, I have come to believe that my best form of activism is first to be a good person and this an ambassador to the community at large while also accepting any opportunities for education formally & informally.
To me it’s about integrity & showing up. It’s also about getting a place at the table and not shying away from speaking up. And too it’s about introspection & personal accountability.
Thank you for your project & insights ❤️🙏

All a black girl needs

Just started listening and I already feel like a part of something. Queens that understand what I go through as a black woman. They need more recognition👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

Was COVID the time for a travel episode?

500k are dead in the U.S alone. There is nothing wrong with a love of travel, but read the room. Otherwise, it’s a good podcast.
