Queen & J. are two womanist race nerds talking liberation, politics, and pop-culture over tea. Drink up!
On this episode…We get into some mental health check-ins and then we uncover, dismantle and disrobe that whole Auntie fiasco and the cultural significance of who and what is an Auntie in the colonized world. Either way we’re telling Harriet Tubman on everybody.
This week’s hot list: coworkers and safety, co-dependency or just regular relationship shit, mental health, coping, managing work, creativity and rest. And classism, anti-Blackness and other implications in the auntie debate.
