    S6E5 - Is Dating For Money Wrong?

    S6E5 - Is Dating For Money Wrong?

    We've all had the "who pays the bill" conversation at least once when it comes to dating. On our final episode of the season, we discuss the importance money plays in dating and relationships. With many differing expectations of what is required financially to date or be in a partnership, we ask is it wrong for money to be the primary factor when seeking a relationship.

    S6E4 - Is Home Schooling The Only Way Forward For Black Kids

    S6E4 - Is Home Schooling The Only Way Forward For Black Kids

    Home schooling wasn’t easy for any parent during the pandemic. It gave many a wider appreciation of how hard it is to be an educator. But some parents have taken the opportunity to take a strong grip of their child’s education and continue home schooling even post lockdown. Are Black children overall better off being educated by their own parents and does the current schooling curriculum work and benefit Black kids?

    S6E2 - Do Men Really Understand Consent?

    S6E2 - Do Men Really Understand Consent?

    We have heard and seen countless women who have came out to tell their experiences of sexual harassment and assault, even those close to home. This reminds us that the work on educating consent is ongoing and this is an important discussion for all, especially to men/boys. This is why we ask the question, do men really understanding what consent is?

    S6E1 - Are You Taking The Vaccine?

    We kick off the new season with a discussion on vaccine hesitancy. Whilst being in a lockdown, we have seen the fast acceleration of vaccine development for COVID-19. With some countries looking to end their lockdown phase using a vaccine rollout, this does leave room for skepticism about the process or necessity.

    S5E9 - Why Should We Vote?

    S5E9 - Why Should We Vote?

    Should Black people vote? With a tumultuous history, that included denial of basic human rights. The ability to vote, to have a voice, was seen as necessary in creating change. Over the years, that idea seems to be increasingly untrue. So we ask, is voting as important or effective as we once believed? Does it benefit Black communities at all?
    Featuring: Tele Lawal, Cecile Wright, Stafford Scott & Trey (WordSmiff)
