    "So Let's Look at the History of Black Food in America"

    It is the last episode before So-Called Oreos takes a hiatus for the summer before our well anticipated rebrand! (Don't worry we will still have episodes for you to listen to during the break.) Before the main topic of discussion, the hosts discuss some problematic celebrities and the real definition of "cancel culture." In honor of Juneteenth, the Oreos give some background on the holiday and discuss how they celebrated (or didn't celebrate) growing up. The Melanin Martha aka Jordan Wimby joins the show to talk about platform that is dedicated to healing generational trauma by reconnecting with our ancestors and history through food. Jordan explains why its important for us to appreciate the food we eat and how to stop the anti-blackness in the food world. She touches on historical points in Netflix's High on the Hog, how our ancestors gained power in cooking and why "soul food" isn't less healthy than food mostly consumed by white people.

    "So You're Black and Love a White-Dominated Sport"

    "So You're Black and Love a White-Dominated Sport"

    It's a single Oreo episode with Amari interviewing her co-host of ESPN's Sound On with Tari & Amari, Tari Kandemiri. Tari is the creator of the popular social account, Official Lax Girl, the founder of skincare company Hama Beauty Inc, and on the Board of Directors of The Tewaaraton Foundation. Tari gives us the details on how she fell in love with lacrosse after moving to The States from Zimbabwe and growing her anonymous twitter account @officiallaxgirl to over 18k to express her love for the sport. Tari opens up about finding feminism through lacrosse and using her platform for equality as well as how lacrosse has opened so many doors for her. The two chat about the myth of men’s sports being more entertaining than women’s, being the only Black person on your team and the reality of being a huge face in lacrosse as a Black woman in a white-dominated sport.

    "So You're at Odds With Religion in the Black Community"

    The Oreos sit down to discuss all things religion and spirituality as they grapple with not fully believing in things that are common in the Black community. After giving a history lesson and stats on the current relationship between Black people and religion, the hosts discuss their religious upbringing, the importance of church in Black culture and why they have issues with the church and organized religion. The three touch on the recent backlash that Lil Nas X received as well as how your relationship with men can effect your relationship with God. Kia explains how she has struggled connecting with other forms of spirituality while Amari and Janae express when they feel most spiritual before reading audience responses on the topic.

    "So...Can Minorities Be Racist?"

    "So...Can Minorities Be Racist?"

    The Oreos answer the very important and complicated question, can minorities be racist? It's something we've seen discussed and wanted to do a deep dive to settle the answer once and for all. Kia and Janae are joined by Jasmine Price, an educator, professor, and most importantly, Janae's older sister. Janae explains the difference between prejudice, discrimination and racism before Jasmine gives a lesson on the circle of oppression, circle of equality and forms of injustice so we can truly understand if "reverse racism" is a thing. The episode ends with some very interesting social responses that spark an interesting convo.
