Life, love and work in a white man's world. Let's help each other figure it out!
Presenters: Sadia Azmat and Monty Onanuga
Laughter, learns and our last episode…
We look back on our favourite episodes including some of our biggest and best guests and what they taught us. Plus we say thanks to you, our amazing listeners, for the things you’ve taught us along the way! No, we’re not crying, you’re crying.
Celebrating black women, Kelechi Okafor and Monty
We’re hilarious, we’re resilient and we’re a force to be reckoned with, according to actor, dance studio boss and podcaster Kelechi Okafor. We talk about how pre-colonial Yoruba spirituality inspires how she sees herself, the misconceptions of black women in dance and twerk and why we get angry about people calling us angry when we aren’t. In my final solo episode, I wanted to celebrate all things black women!
Interracial dating, Ayesha Perry-Iqbal and Athena Kugblenu
I’ve never dated outside of my race and I wanted to hear stories from people who are. We chat about why interracial and interethnic dating isn’t the same thing, model and TV presenter Ayesha says that being British in LA actually makes more of a difference than her race and comedian Athena explains why colourism affects what we see on Instagram and the issues her parents faced in their own relationship.
Money, mindset and Monty
Conversations about money should be really simple, so why don’t we talk more about it? Monty asks Bola Sol and Franklin Asante (aka The Urban Financier) what the receipts really are for drip culture, to share hacks for your bank balance and about their own journeys to getting better with money.
Sudan, Netherlands and Gaidaa
Life for people of colour varies hugely across Europe. We hear what growing up in the Netherlands was like for Dutch-Sudanese artist Gaidaa compared to living in the UK. We talk about outdated Christmas traditions, the Dutch response to Black Lives Matter, the creative scene in Sudan and how she uses her music and performances to highlight what’s happening in Sudan.
Stripping, Samantha Sun and April Fiasco
We rarely hear from strippers who are women of colour, so I wanted to find out how they feel about being eroticised for their race, what their families think of their jobs and why my preconceptions of their job are wrong. And I learned we have something surprising in common… with Samantha Sun and April Fiasco.
Awesome and cringeworthy
Love that this addresses the real issues that affect young women of colour. Minty is always on point, Sadia however is often uninformed and will ask questions not always relevant and sometimes just restating platitudes. As an Indian woman it’s cringeworthy, in a google age, a quick search would be helpful. Her limited world view sometimes harts the fluidity of the podcast. If she spent a little bit of time researching before interviews, Sadi would be do much better. She’s funny and open and they have a genuine friendship and tackle a lot of interesting current topics
Super Insightful and Refreshing
Two seriously talented ladies who deliver excellent content every time these publish a pod.
Ladies you are amazing. I feel like I am listening to my best friends whenever I hear you and I am so glad I found you. Smart, witty, hilarious podcast. Perfect!
