Aamber and Charlie understand that adulting as millennial black women in Los Angeles is not easy. These best friends started Ladies Doing Stuff Podcast so that women can know they are not alone in their desire for perfection, or even just for survival.

After college graduation, the ladies simply picked up their high school friendship right where they left off; but they found that their adult lives were not that simple at all. Job losses, new marriages, and keeping friendships are just a few things that they learned to navigate along the way. All of this while living in Los Angeles, a city with not-so-many “angels” as it turns out.

Aamber and Charlie created Ladies Doing Stuff Podcast as a safe space to share hilarious experiences, contrasting opinions, and to create a proudly imperfect community for women of color.

    Can't Feel a Thing

    Can't Feel a Thing

    *ALEXA! What are feelings?*
    To be fair, this previously unreleased episode was made in early 2019.  Back in the day even when things weren't all COVID-Y, we were feeling so overwhelmed with a lack of emotion that we had to ask ourselves the question, "Can you feel anything?" In retrospect, we were probably depressed. So naturally, this episode consists of 30% nervous laughter. 😅However, we digress.
    Today, we are a in a completely different headspace but this unlocked episode offers timeless tips when it comes to dealing with (or without) emotion.
    In "Can't Feel A Thing" Charlie and Aamber question their capacity for connection, explain their love + communication language, and pull from the past for profound revelations.

    “Death is only the end if you believe life is about you.” We brought in Death Care expert and author of “Dear Grief, You’re a B*tch,” Shannan Guillory to educate us about death from an emotional and professional point of view. We saved this episode in the vault and now is the perfect time to share it with you. Before social distancing and self-quarantine, LA was rocked by the loss of a legend. Regardless of the challenges 2020 has brought us, we're learning to celebrate life and how to honor the lives of those that are no longer with us. This is one episode you'll have to play to the end.

    Check out Shannan's book, “Dear Grief, You’re a B*tch”

    Best Year Yet!

    So long 2019, hello 2020!
    And just where have we been all this time? Absorbing life lessons and inspiration to share with you, of course! 2019 taught us that we are stronger than we think. In retrospect, it really was our best year yet! Just not without some really sh*tty moments. Hey! It’s been said that “a comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there.”
    It took us a cool minute but we're back on the mic to continue sharing our experiences and hopefully inspire you to do the same. Listen to our first episode of 2020 to find out exactly why we've been gone for so long and to get a preview of what to look forward to in 2020.

    Single, Celibate, and Satisfied

    Single, Celibate, and Satisfied

    Situationships and friends with benefits are kind of the norm here in LA. Everyone is afraid of commitment and no one wants to miss out on the “perfect” partner. Swiping right for nightly thrills seems to be the new normal, but what if we took sex out of the equation?

    Before you roll your eyes and leave like Viola Davis, just hear us out. Charlie and Aamber dish with good friend and actress Leah Williams (as seen on Awkward Black Girl) about what it’s like being celibate in the lustful city of Los Angeles.

    Could celibacy really be the answer to finding a fulfilling partnership? Is it possible to just ‘hook up with no strings attached? The Ladies explore how celibacy is gaining popularity in Los Angeles and how to guard your heart when giving (or not giving) up the goods.

The L.A. Versions of Myself.

Aamber and Charlie remind me so much of myself. From childhood to everything else, they are the LA versions of this Georgia transplant. So glad I found this podcast.
