Queen & J. are two womanist race nerds talking liberation, politics, and pop-culture over tea. Drink up!
On this episode… We indulge in one of our favorite past times, watching TV and tearing it to shreds. Full of mixed feelings about the hit Hulu series ‘Shrill’, we ask does Black body image matter on a show about body image? Is this show low key/high key about white men? Or the 53%? We’re like joking but super serious.
This week’s hot list: Watch Shrill on Hulu if you’re feeling froggy, dating, attractiveness & body image, where did Fran get her rompers tho? Black friends & emotional labor, fatphobia is not limited to “straight” folks, white men love camera time and white writers love giving it to them and mad other sh*t.
