    Season 3 Episode 24 "How the Strong Black Woman Schema Can Affect Your Mental Health"

    The Strong Black Woman Schema or Super Woman narrative is essentially a societal view that Black Women are resilient, strong, and therefore can take on anything in life. However, while some may view this narrative as something positive or even empowering, there are levels to this ideology. This episode explains how the idea of resilience can cause others to view Black Women as superhuman and therefore lacking the need for support on an individual and even systemic level.

    Season 3 Episode 22 "Born To Be an Optimist?"

    “The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty “
    – Winston Churchill
    An optimist, when faced with a problem, tends to find the upside to the situation and starts figuring out ways to solve that problem or ways to turn it around.  A pessimist, however, immediately throws up his hands, and yells, “That’s it; it’s all over. I can’t handle this anymore.”  Or he will distance himself from the problem, pretending it doesn’t matter.  This is denial, and it never works.
     According to the world's foremost expert on optimism, Dr. Martin Seligman, everyone is born optimistic.  And yet, 95% of grownups are pessimists, not optimists.  What goes wrong?  Some people see the glass as half empty.  Others see it as half full.  This episode explores is it really as simple as that?  Is it possible to be a bit of both?
