    I Don't Care If You Listen - Episode 41 - Getting Into The Room Where It Happens

    Thanks to my friend Johanna Bogater for taking the time to chat with me about her work on the political scene, forming a PAC and life. We’ve known each other a long time and I’ve been excited watching her journey. I continue having conversations with friends who’ll talk about how we can make the world better. It’s an audio journal. Sometimes we vent and sometimes we strategize. After this recording I was reminded that we need to get the right people in to those rooms “where it happens”. Find out how you can get involved. 
Little by little we'll chip away and good will overcome evil. I have to believe.

    I Don't Care If You Listen Podcast - Episode 40 "Dear White Friends,"

    I Don't Care If You Listen Podcast - Episode 40 "Dear White Friends,"

    I Don't Care If You Listen, but if you do, this week you'll hear my friend Abby and I journal our experience in the time of Covid and a Great Awakening as fellow Americans, with different perspectives, trying to make it work. Let's start asking each other questions about race. What can we do to affect change in our own worlds. I love hip hop, she loves country, but we can come together on quite a few things including respect for HUMANITY! Check out new music from The Chicks for a little inspiration. Email IDCIYLPodcast@gmail.com with feedback or if you have something you'd like to share. I'm always looking for great conversations! Thanks or 5 star ratings and sharing with friends.

    Hi! Shalini here. Thanks for humoring me and spending some time listening to my friends and I get stuff off our chests. I hope you'll all appreciate that Leonica, Chuntay and I are friends from ages ago who have a unique bond that keeps bringing us back to each other as we navigate this time in history. Welcome to our audio journal where we keep it 100% real with what's happening. Of course staying positive is what we all strive to do, but this is our safe space to share and unload. Please forgive EXPLICIT language and take some time to listen to my sisters explain some things from their point of you. I'm excited to share other points of view too so anytime you want to unload, get things off your chest, or just comment on things, reach out. I look forward to hearing from you. Facebook, IDCIYLPodcast@gmail.com or comment here! Thanks for subscribing and for a 5 star rating. This episode was recorded on Friday, June 26th. App. one month after protests began. We experienced some audio issues, I hope you can listen past. Let's keep the conversations happening friends!!! Agree, challenge, engage, debate, let's talk.
    Truly,
    Shalini

Like hanging with the girls!

Love listening to these two talk about things that are happening in their lives and the world. You feel like you are right there hanging out with them. Straight forward talk and they’re not afraid to say how they feel. Why not - they don’t care if you listen!

Thanks

We enjoy doing the show and thanks for tuning in but you know we don’t care if you listen

Funny & Real

We give an interesting perspective on current events and issues that affect us as women, minorities, mothers, wives, daughters and friends. Nobody cares about our opinion ut us, but we are compelled to share it anyway. We named the show, "I Don't Care If You Listen" because we know there are millions of people who don't agree with us. We're speaking to the people who can relate. We're rocking with Colin Kaepernick, Stacy Abrams, Jamal Khashoggi supporters because we believe in social justice and empowerment. We prefer CNN and MSNBC to Fox News. We're so embarassed by the current administration in the US that we barely speak the name of the person in office. Some people don't wanna hear it but we have every right to speak. Please don't tell us to shut up. Don't ever, ever tell us to shut up. That's disrespectful. We value our right to speak. You don't have to agree with us. Just stop listening. Don't listen. I'm Leonica. She's Shalini. We'll both tell you, "I don't care if you listen."
