We are Black women!!! We LOVE being Black women. Because Black women are ambitious. Black women are confident. Black women are diligent. We are tenacious! We walk out of hour houses “PUT TOGETHER”. We are many shades and personalities of FABULOUS! Black Women Love to Talk!!! But…we, as Black women, aren't often provided the space to talk about our dilemmas, current events, and what affects us. Join us as we talk through everything from current events and memes, to news and our personal lives. We may even throw in a story or two about our friends (with their permission of course.) Although our focus is Black Women, We invite everyone (regardless of gender or ethnicity)to join the conversation. We created this podcast as a way to laugh together…cry together…and have an open conversation about life as a Black woman.

    Half & Half

    In our opening chatter we talk about how our week has been. What’s on Our Timeline? Today's timeline is coming to us live and direct. Leah from Leah’s Lemonade is here mixing tea with lemonade. Let’s Talk Through It Our first friend says her mother recently moved in with her, her husband and 2 girls. Growing up her mom wasn’t very nice to her and her sister saying a lot of really nasty things. Recently her mom said some negative things to her husband and she is wondering why she is putting up with her mom and thinking about putting her out. Our other friend is a 40 year old who thought that her biological clock was ticking and she and her boyfriend decided to have IVF and we ended up having triplets. Fast forward three years, she is a single mother raising three beautiful girls. There are days that she loves her girls and there are days that she resents them. She feels like she never has time for herself and is either taking care of patients or taking care of my babies. She wants to take her ex to court and get shared custody but a bit embarrassed because she shouldn't have to force her daughters on their father. She wants to know what she should do? Until we meet again. Pray! Work! Slay! And Show Off Your Melanated Excellence!

    Celebrating the Wins

    In our opening chatter we talk about how our week has been. What’s on Our Timeline? SLIM Kim on TikTok got us out here collecting our flowers even with the obstacles we go through as black women. Let’s Talk Through It Our first friend is a travel nurse. She has only been at her hospital for 5 months and already been nominated for recognition. Now it's time to nominate again and she wants to nominate another African American nurse. Her Asian boyfriend thinks she shouldn’t nominate anyone because she is not full time and that she only wants to nominate this woman because she is black. She asks if she is being unfair by participating since she is not full time. Our other friend is a millennial and thinks she may be too hard on herself. She’s about to be 40 and has a good job as a restaurant manager but thought she would be a lot further along than she currently is. Until we meet again. Pray! Work! Slay!
