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!

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.

    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.

    12 | Showing Up Truthfully and Unapologetically with Pam R. Johnson Davis

    12 | Showing Up Truthfully and Unapologetically with Pam R. Johnson Davis

    In this week's episode, Pam R. Johnson Davis, affectionately known as Unapologetically Pam, is walking us through what it looks like to show up as yourself truthfully and unapologetically.
    I met Pam through the Unapologetic Retreat, and online event that I hosted for creatives and entrepreneurs. She was a speaker for the retreat and there is a magic about her that you can literally feel and see shining through her.
    I'm sipping rosè and Pam sipping on High Noon vodka soda and we are diving into the art of living unapologetically, the many forms of grief and how we process them, owning your journey and story no matter how painful, and more.

    LeAnne Lavender (yes, that's her real name as she jokes) is on the podcast this week and her incredible story is going to leave you wanting more. LeAnne is an IVF warrior and shares her infertility journey with us as well as her life story after her husband was paralyzed in what could have been a fatal motorcycle accident.
    This week we are diving into the hope we find when we focus on what God is doing versus what He isn't, what "in sickness and in health" really means for us, learning to accept hard seasons instead of wishing them away, and more.

    10 | Breaking Free From Unhealthy Thought Patterns, Overthinking, and Perfectionism with Samantha Castillo

    10 | Breaking Free From Unhealthy Thought Patterns, Overthinking, and Perfectionism with Samantha Castillo

    I'm sitting down with my bestie boo this week. The maid of honor in my wedding and the ride or die of all ride or dies, Samantha is on the podcast sipping on a gin and tonic while I’m *chugging* a rosé peach mimosa.
    We are the self-proclaimed queens of chronic overthinking. Not sure if I should be proud of that, but here we are. This episode is all about how to end the cycle of unhealthy thought loops, letting go of the obsession with perfect, understanding the difference between self efficacy/self confidence and/self esteem, how to cope with chronic overthinking, how to care for things without being consumed, and more.

    My *recipe* for my rosé peach mimosa
    I didn’t have a sparkling rosé so I used 1:1 prosecco + dry rosé and added a splash of peach juice. It was a little sweet but so good.
