A resource for black women and beyond!

This podcast is the most important and most valuable that I’ve come across. I almost always have to listen and rewind so that I don’t miss the gems from the well researched questions to the thought provoking replies. Sihle has a way of tackling difficult topics in a way that is both thought provoking and equally relatable. My favourite podcast that I learn the most from.

Informative tops

Sihle has a way of asking the right questions and interacting with her guests. I’m discovering women I never new about nor thought I’d want to know through her podcasts. Thank you for the thoughtful conversations.

Loving the podcast

Thank you for engaging with professionals who look and sound like me. Personally I have been struggling to find the words to describe some of the things I have been going through at work, personal relationships etc, so comforting that I am not alone nor crazy. Inspired to work more on
myself. Highlight was Pabi’s interview. Thank you.
