Okay, Now We're Saying Goodbye
Scottie and Sylvia share a goodbye message to the Okay Now Listen audience.
Okay, The Queen Has Arrived (with Golda Rosheuvel)
This week, we have a special episode, indeed. We sit down with the multitalented, Golda Rosheuvel, aka Queen Charlotte on Netflix's Bridgerton. We chat with Her Highness about the second season of the hit show, as well as the freedom of love. We even get The Queen to agree to an innocent game of 'Queen Approved.'
Okay, We're Reclaiming Our Softness (with Heather Headley)
This week, we start off by checking in about Netflix's The Ultimatum. That reunion was as messy as we thought it'd be. Then, we spend some time talking about what it takes to live a life of ease and softness as Black women.
Finally, we bring on the multitalented Heather Headley to chat about the ways she intentionally worked to create softness into her character, Helen, on Netflix's Sweet Magnolias, and her journey from theatre to music to acting.
Oh, one more thing, this podcast, along with our Youtube series, Get You A Me, have received Webby nominations and we'd love for y'all to vote for us! You can vote for our podcast here and for Get You A Me here. We appreciate y'all!
Okay, Back To Reality (with Lauren Speed-Hamilton)
We are back, baby! This week, we check-in after our *little* hiatus and chat about our vacation adventures and what we've been binging. Hint: It's been a lot of dating reality shows.
Then, we spend some time talking about the representation of Black women on these dating reality shows. We bring on the one and only, Lauren Speed-Hamilton, star of season one of Netflix's Love Is Blind, to expand the conversation even further as she shares her experience being casted and produced for the show.
Okay, Now Listen: Season 3 Trailer

Join Scottie and Sylvia for more interviews with your favorite celebs and the hot takes you love to hate. We'll be back in your feeds Tuesday, April 5th.

Okay, '21 Was Savage
Happy (Early) New Year!
We’re dropping into your feeds early this week with a special Season 2 finale episode.
In this marathon of a year, we talk through our personal lessons of the year before getting into all the culture moments that brought us joy in 2021. Because if there’s one thing Omarion’s not gonna do, it’s stop us from celebrating all the fabulous Black women and culture movers who gave us life in this wild year.
We get into everything from our favorite Verzuz battles to the best viral internet moments (shoutout to Oprah’s Meghan Markle interview), our favorite albums of the year, songs, movies, TV shows and so much more. So grab yourself a little weighted blanket and tap in!
Bring it back!
This podcast made me feel like I was talking to friends, especially when I was down. I would love to bring it back but definitely appreciate all of the conversations, and topics discussed. I truly have not listened to another podcast that resembles this.
This saved me
It was an amazing ride…you helped someone (me) overcoming the epidemic alone in a such a great way! You all truly were my girlfriends through my phone. I love y’all and bye until we meet again!
I just love this podcast and these women
great blend of intellectual conversation with emotion and humor. I’ll be sad when I finish all the episodes but I’m grateful to have come across it!
