Sometimes we talk about sex, sometimes we talk about pop culture, and sometimes we talk about politics. Either way, it’ll be a kiiiiii. The Gworlz Room is an open forum about everything featuring Philly-based chosen siblings, Erica (@thicccorita) & Rasheed (@sheededonem/@phreedomjawn).
Our reoccurring segments include: (1) “What’s Tea” (a review of interesting trending news), (2) “It’s Giving” (a mutual aid call-to-action), and (3) “Holla At Ya Gworl” (main discussion).
