    Ep 21. Police Brutality - How do we FEEL about this? ft. Franklyn Addo

    Ep 21. Police Brutality - How do we FEEL about this? ft. Franklyn Addo

    Following recent events, we take some time with Franklyn to dissect how we FEEL. Much of the conversation in the mainstream is saturated with overt grief and attempts at constructing solutions, but we felt it was pertinent and important for ourselves to express how we feel about being black, witnessing the violation & slaughter of black bodies as regularly as we do, and the nature of structural whiteness.

    Ep 20. Africans vs Caribbeans

    Ep 20. Africans vs Caribbeans

    Following the Vybz Kartel vs Wizkid clash which broke the internet via @theresnosignall radio, we discuss long standing tensions between people who identify as "African" and people who identify as "Caribbean" in Britain. Admittedly, the conversation centres Nigeria and Jamaica, based on the clash as well as our individual experiences and heritage. We acknowledge that progress has been made to bridge the existing divide however there is still a long way to go to completely eliminate ignorance about the 'other' in both communities.

    Ep 19. I deeped....I'm controlling

    Ep 19. I deeped....I'm controlling

    In this episode we have an honest conversation about the way control manifests in our relationships with others. We identify times we have displayed controlling behaviour and decide to take a look at some of the factors which contribute to those behaviours; but also ways we are actively trying to combat controlling tendencies. This was a difficult but freeing conversation and we hope you're able to take something from it.

    Ep 18. COVID-19 - Being broke, black and quarantined

    In this episode we discuss our experience of social distancing during the government enforced lockdown. Contrary to mainstream conversations claiming that COVID-19 has been a 'leveller' for British people, we highlight some of the ways race, class and gender have impacted upon our experiences of social distancing.
