Hosts Frenchie, Nika, and Wes cater to what their generation wants to hear while being considered the “oddballs” of the bunch. They're unafraid to speak their truths how they see fit. Tackling topics that push the envelope is their bread and butter and they offer listeners a seat at the table. They are not your usual cup of tea nor are they here to be, but you can't resist taking a sip. Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/the-black-umbrella/support
