    On this episode…‘Sis - auntie - girl - mama - We get into the politics of Black labels and who can call who what. Then, the Black celebrities trying to sabotage the election, and ‘tu siempre negrita del Bronx’ reminds us that Black girl erasure is the same in English and Spanish.

Small purchases for self-care (you deserve!). “Auntie” and centering women over 40 (it’s not as bad as it sounds, we promise). #EndSARS cuz police violence happens throughout the diaspora. Ice Cube, T.I., Kanye might be the feds. Black women erasure by way of J.Lo…again and mad other ish

    #265 I May Destroy You

    Queen & J. are two womanist race nerds talking liberation, politics, and pop-culture over tea. Drink up!


    On this episode… We’re reviewing the HBO series “I May Destroy You”. This is a spoiler full episode so if you care about spoilers, go watch the series and come back to us!

    Content warning, this series explores themes of rape and sexual assault and we will be discussing those themes of rape and sexual assault and at times our own experiences with rape and sexual assault. Our mental health counselor homie Akua of Inner Hoe Uprising podcast joins for added support, but if you feel like this episode is not for you, we get it. We start the show with our usual banter, so if you wanna tap in for that and then turn it off, we get that too.

    This week’s hotlist - Birthday joy, roller skate bling bling, virtual auntie time with Patti Labelle and Gladys Knight. Micheala Cole is a bad bitch genius.

    On this episode… Is it our fault that a whole new lipless white woman lied about being Black for 10 years? Probably not but we’re talking about identity again, cuz shit is getting super weird.


    This week’s hotlist - Quick housekeeping about who we center in our work. Talk to us nice dammit. Hug your elders, cuddle your boo, affirm abundance for everyone. Failed recordings but we are still here getting Black women paid! Network vs. Community, Empaths & The Pynk, Colorism is always in style. Bronx accents are not Boston accents, we don't understand why we even have to say this. Black identity, Afrolatinx erasure, Jessica Krug, and a delicious juicy pitt!
