    Episode H005 - Travel

    In this episode of Nice To Meet You, I highlight previous episodes discussing traveling. Tommy shares his travels to South America and learning about the African Diaspora from another perspective. Alise talks about her travel blog, (@blackgirltravelslay) focused on highlighting and destigmatizing the misconceptions around black women and traveling, and how she started traveling with study abroad programs in college. JusPaul explains how he was inspired to change the way he traveled when he was performing abroad after he had some locals show him around the city their way. Stephen informs me about what it means to him to travel because of his friends who are unable to, teachers that doubted him, and family members that look up to him. Sydney tells the story of traveling home for Christmas while living in Germany and how luck was barely on her side that day.

    Jomiro and I talk about the importance of storytelling in society and also recording your own story even if it’s just for yourself. He tells me how his traditional tattooing practice led him into more intimate conversations with friends and how phone calls can also lead to a better understanding of friends. We also talk about living with your significant other and what adjustments and requests need to be made for a fruitful transition.

    In this episode of Nice To Meet You, I highlight previous episodes discussing social media. Brody and I chat about what we use social media for and our thoughts after watching The Social Dilemma. Chazz explains how social media affects our brains and how important it is to set boundaries for ourselves with these apps. Uni informs me of the “meme economy” and lets us all know we don’t have to be in the spotlight to feel important. Ashley shares how hard or seemingly creepy it is to make friends as an adult and how social media isn’t much help. Isabel (@isabel.knight) tells me about her idea of solving polarization caused by social media and how communal spaces would be beneficial to us all. Alanna tells me about her way of solving “the social dilemma” by creating her own community with the platform, We Are In The Flesh, aimed at creating a space for people to be vulnerable without trolls.

Listen, I may be episode 9 but I can be unbiased

Simone has curated a ton of interesting questions which guarantee each episode is unique. If you resonate with the picture of the guy eating salad with a picture of women talking, you’ll enjoy this podcast. Hey, if you listen enough, she’ll probably ask to interview you.
