Rosè with Rae is a podcast hosted by Rachel Symone Gilliam, but around here, you can call her Rae. Each week she'll hop on here with some incredible guests and her best friends for around the table and real-life conversations over a glass (or bottle) of rosé. Some weeks we might get heavy and take you to church and the next we might have one glass too many and be teaching you how to twerk. It's no secret that life has its ups and downs, but at the end of the day, there's always rosè. Cheers!

    18 | Solo Sippin with Rae: Life After Loss + Season Finale

    I cannot believe this season is coming to an end or that this our first ever (ever ever) solo episode! I'm getting raw in this *tear-filled* and *emotional* episode chatting through what life after loss looks like right now and encouraging all of my grieving listeners to keep putting one foot in front of the other each day in your grief, no matter how painful. I'm sharing some promises with you about grief to help get you through this holiday season and also sharing my heart and struggle with perfectionism and how it's been holding me back this year.
    Grab a glass and a tissue for our final episode of Season 2! Can't wait to *cheers* with you again next season.

    17 | Faith, Prayer, and Intimacy with God in All Seasons with Lindsay Ayers

    17 | Faith, Prayer, and Intimacy with God in All Seasons with Lindsay Ayers

    We’re back this week for one of our final episodes of Season 2. Lindsay is a dear friend that I met on IG a few years ago and has easily become one of my favorite people to follow on Instagram and in real life. After going through a tough break up, she began to see God in a new way and I love how she uses her platform “The Faith Feast” to welcome other people into the presence of God so that they can experience His fullness. The best part? The girl is down to earth and SO relatable. No Christianese or holier than thou BS over here - just two girls who know how much they need a Savior.

    In today’s episode, Lindsay is walking us through what it looks like to fully trust God even in the moments that you want to be in control, what faith means to her, and what true intimacy with God looks like. I left this conversation feeling so convicted (in the best way) to PRAY and welcome God into my everyday because a part from Him there is no rest. Another reminder that Lindsay kindly blesses us with.

    16 | Reading as Self-Care and Unpacking The Vanishing Half with Katelyn Cole/The Bookcase Beauty

    16 | Reading as Self-Care and Unpacking The Vanishing Half with Katelyn Cole/The Bookcase Beauty

    It's hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that I have known Katelyn for over 10 years now. Even harder to believe that this girl reads over 10 books a month. In this week's episode, Katelyn aka The Bookcase Beauty is walking us through establishing reading habits, how reading is a form of self-care, and how she's been able to grow her "bookstagram" to over 36k followers by sharing her passion for reading with others.
    Welcome to our virtual book club! In the second half of the episode, we are also taking a deep dive into the bestselling book, The Vanishing Half. A novel with deep roots centered around racism, classism, colorism, and identity. If you haven't read this book, it is a must-read. We're unpacking the book at every level and recapping some of the most impacting moments and characters.
    Grab a glass!

    14 | Black Girl’s Guide to Navigating Corporate America + Allyship with Brittany Barnes and Helina Seyoum

    You might need to grab a whole bottle this week y'all because I am sitting down with not one, but TWO of my girlfriends/former coworkers diving into some tough but necessary topics surrounding navigating corporate America as Black women. From the microaggressions we encounter, the anxiety that stems from wearing and styling natural hair in White spaces, to creating safe spaces for your Black friends and coworkers as an ally.
    From the Episode - Products We Are Loving:
    BioDerma Cleansing Oil Clean Skin - Clean 100% Organic Towels  Vitner's Daughter Botanical Serum  ...hair grease (lmao but for real, Helina is seeing results by reincorporating hair grease with her 4c hair) Paula's Choice literally everything La Roche-Posay Sunscreen Sustainable period products: Thinx period panties and Charlie Banana cloth pads --

    13 | The (Saturn) Return to Your Uninfluenced Self with Les Alfred

    13 | The (Saturn) Return to Your Uninfluenced Self with Les Alfred

    Not sure if y'all are even ready for this (balanced) Black girl magic, but this week I am sitting down with Les Alfred, founder of Balanced Black Girl and a true hero of my heart. Can't lie, I couldn't even drink during this episode because I didn't want to miss a single thing that Les had to share. She's dropping SO much wisdom and truth centered around unlearning that we have to strive for rest, returning to our uninfluenced selves (who would you be without your childhood trauma? without social media?), your Saturn return, and reconnecting with the truth that our worth doesn't come from our work. Her words on being > doing will bring you peace. Normally I'd say grab a glass, but for real you'll want some pen and paper instead.
