    Black In Amsterdam (with Ayra Kip!)

    Black In Amsterdam (with Ayra Kip!)

    Ask for more. That's the lesson, and it's one our host Noleca applied when she and her life partner, Homero, moved their family out of the United States.
    But they didn't do it alone, and in this episode she chats with the woman responsible for their safe passage to Amsterdam.
    Together, Noleca and Ayra discuss their decision to raise their children in the Netherlands, share stories about Blackness, and detail the ways they intend to show up more for their people.

    Away-Sickness (with Qianna and Andre Pijeaux!)

    Away-Sickness (with Qianna and Andre Pijeaux!)

    To move is to survive, at least that's often the case for Black people.
    In this episode our host Noleca chats with Qianna and Andre about movement and their collective decision to choose safety and peace. Together they reveal the affect moving has had on their children and discuss what they have learned, struggled with, and appreciated about their travels. This conversation begs the question, if you could move to a place that suited your family and valued your life, where would you go and what's stopping you?

    The Ballot or the Bullet (with Allegra and Keith White!)

    The Ballot or the Bullet (with Allegra and Keith White!)

    Vote or die? Propaganda or facts?
    In this episode, Noleca chats with her life partner Homero and friends of the pod, Allegra and Keith White about the high stakes of the upcoming Nov. 2020 presidential elections and the obligation to go vote.
    Together they discuss if there's any difference between an overt and covert racist, how they are prepping their families for election day, and if staying in the U.S. is worth it--no matter who sits in the White House.

    What in the PWI (with Shalewa Mackall!)

    What in the PWI (with Shalewa Mackall!)

    Every decision has a consequence and trade-off, especially when it involves attending or working at a predominately white institution.


    In this week's episode, Noleca and her Woe, Shalewa discuss what it's like to be a guide. They also speak on the gains they get from working with students, but also the trauma of having to compartmentalize racism and micro-aggressions from white colleagues, children, and parents at PWIs.
    It's not cute. It's a lot to confront and it makes one wonder . . . is all hope lost? Are compromises inevitable or is there a better way?


    What if, instead of squishing ourselves and conforming, Black and other people of color showed up as their full selves at these institutions?

    Divination (with Timil Jones!)

    Divination (with Timil Jones!)

    The ancestors are speaking. Are you listening? Are you open?
    This week our host Noleca chats with mystic Timil Jones about all things divination. Together the two discuss alters, tarot cards, divine knowing, and giving our children the space and guidance to engage with the astral plane.
    Perhaps our grandmas, big mamas, and aunties were on to something? And maybe our bodies have always known that time is not real and we already have everything we need to fly.
    Tune in for a treat and some otherworldy video game and television show recommendations to spark the imagination and bring you closer to yourself.

A Gem

I got wind of this podcast from the Black Millennial Marriage podcast. Since then i have been hooked and binge listening.

Pros-
-The sounds of the hosts are amazing. They have a voice that was meant to be enjoyed.
- The structure of the show makes it a clear and easy listen.
-I love hearing the children’s opinions and how they are seemlessly added into the show.
- The host’s guest choices compliment the conversations so well.
- the conversation are narrated with such ease it is truly a skill.
The information are timeless and raise questions for myself that I haven't considered.
I’ve had to look at myself and self assess.
No cons as of yet from this child having lady.
Thank you for just amazing work and honesty.

In LOVE

I am in LOVE with this podcast. I never thought I’d find a podcast that spoke to my heart and aligned with my desire to raise FREE children. I’m thankful I found this podcast and right on time at that! My daughter is 8 months and I’m grateful I have this podcast as a resource, comfort, and friend. I binged the first season and I’m happy I finished right in time for the second. Noleca is a gift and so are her babies and her husband and it’s a blessing to have access to them through the pod and to hear their thoughts in the midst of the episodes. Thank YOU. Please don’t stop. At least until my daughter turns 18 😭. 💜💜💜 #foreverlistener
