Episode 84: Separation Nation
This week, you’ll hear about getting #JusticeforJunior, claims that BPS admins have been sharing student info with ICE, and recent stats showing that there are more guns in the U.S. than there are people. In the 360 topic, Separation Nation (33:50), Keesa & Djevna talk about the horrific reality of tender age shelters, a direct result of this administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy. The policy pushes for the full enforcement of legal prosecution against families who attempt to cross the border, resulting in the separation of thousands of children from their parents/guardians. Is a crack down on illegal immigration ever an excuse for ignoring basic human rights? Melania’s recent fashion choices claim she might not care, but we do and so should you.

Episode 83: Take a Knee to Take a Stand
This week, you’ll hear about Trump making it easier to tell federal employees “you’re fired!”, Kanye and Pusha T’s controversial album cover photo choice, and how 80s Babies are officially the brokest generation. In the 360 topic, Take a Knee to Take a Stand (36:46), Keesa & Djevna talk about NFL’s new policy requiring on-field players and personnel to stand for the national anthem. This new policy stems from the continued protests that started after Colin Kaepernick decided to take a knee to protest the poor treatment of minorities in the U.S. You can’t help but wonder if race plays a part when a fellow NFL player, Tim Tebow, was praised for doing the exact same thing. One could argue that they were both advocating for beliefs that value all life, so why was Colin’s kneel received so poorly?

Perspective That Makes You Reconsider
Before Talk360, I was never a person who used podcasts to garner information about current events. I mostly relied on national and local newspapers, popular bloggers and colleagues to help shape my views on issues relevant to young, black professionals. What I love most about Djevna and Keesa is that they bring topics to life by making issues three dimensional. They add color to darker topics by throwing in a laugh here and there and make an attempt to bring on guests who can share their expertise. I especially like that they take time to tend to the details: I often get a chuckle from the names of the episodes.
Nicely done, ladies.
