Episode 7: Expiry Dates

So apparently women are given deadlines in life that equates them to their value.

This notion is not only derogatory, but also very backward and was brought about by a Narcissistic comment we saw on Instagram where a man said that a woman after the age of 29 is as bad as sour milk.

We take a deep dive into analyzing why a man would be so disrespectful to all women after that age, especially when most African men are raised by the maternal societies

Episode 5: Shaking Off Childhood Trauma

 

This episode looks at the effects of how some things we experience as children, affect us greatly once we are adults.

Sometimes, we even bury the trauma deep inside our hearts as it was too painful and confusing as a child to deal with, and this adversely affects us as adults.

We then see the remnants of our trauma trickle into our day to day lives as adults, and we end up making our current relationships suffer the burden of our pain.

Episode 3: Masturbation (Taboo/Sin?)

Sex, by nature is something we shy away from naturally.

People tend to blush when they are talking about their sex lives or avoid talking about sex with friends or family.

Our sex lives are something very private and so when we try to go past basic sex  “partners being intimate” and start diving deep into other waters such as self pleasure, majority of people like to then bring religion, christianity to be exact into the mix, and ascertain that this is in fact a sin and should not be done if you are trying to be a holy version of yourself.

Episode 2: Money V Love

 

 

This episode looks at the confusion the world has brought upon the word “broke”. People talk about being broke as if it is a disgusting disease that should be shunned and that when one is “broke” they should be ashamed of that status.

We look at circumstances that lead to the majority of black men being broke and why sometimes it is due to systematic social cultural dissociation, and a lack of employment in the world.

This therefore leads to women avoiding the so-called broke black man, and chasing after “the provider” instead.
