SEX EDITION '19

We kicked off 2019 with a bang and brought back our popular event series ‘A Night With…’ #DMDPodcast, #JusttheTippod, #4Elementspodcast and 1/2 our resident hosts Temi Alchemy host of #90sBabyShow & Hemah K host of beat106fm for the 2nd Sex Edition discussion. The discussions centered around sexuality, media influence on attractiveness & sex education in schools. Below is the topic list:

1, Women who flaunt their bodies claim it’s empowring and a sign of proclaiming their sexuality. Is this the case or are they simply repackaging self-objectification for the male gaze?

2, The media vs feminism – which has the biggest influence on the sexualisation of the younger gen?

3, Is it the parents or states (school) responsibility to teach children about sex education? Would you allow your children to learn about gay relationships during sex education classes?

slavery is a choice

Our 3rd event in the ‘A Night With…’ series was inspired by Kanye’s recent comments on slavery. We appreciate our panellists’ Rhea Ellen, Fols Forever & Mr Vans of #OfftheCuffpod, Lippie, Ree and Rejoice engaged in the conversation challenging the notion that slavery is a choice. Discussions became heated with some agreeing with Kanye’s comments but our hosts Temi Alchemy & Fred Santana of the 90sBabyShow controlled the floor to ensure the conversations remained respectful.

Below are the topics we discussed:

1, Having watched Kanye’s interviews with Charlamgne and TMZ, what do we make of his comment: slavery is a choice.

2, What is we as Black people stopped teaching our children about slavery and other adversities we’ve experienced and focused on teaching them the richness of African history? Would we be raising a generation that believes we’ve already overcome?

international womens day '18

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY!

We teamed up with HellaTurnt UK to bring you an International Women’s Day event which focused on educating women on how to navigate the creative industry (as a Black woman in the diaspora) with advice from carefully curated industry professionals. Hosted by Sia (BK Chat cast member and founder of The Disgusted campaign) and Faith (1/4 of Lets Talk podcast) this event was super useful.

What a way to end 2017 with our second event ‘A Night With…’ Podcast Special ft #DMDPodcast, Triggered Podcast & hosted by the hilarious duo: Temi Alchemy & Fred Santana #90sBabyShow podcast! A special thanks to our podcasters and hosts who entertained the guests. The event focused on gender equality, women and had some games at the end of the show. Below are some of the topics we discussed:-

1, Singer MJB was ordered to pay child support for ex-husband’s child following her divorce from her ex-husband. Should men be granted the same privileges as women when it comes to divorce?

2, What would you do if your the woman you’re interested in doesn’t believe in ‘playing wife’? Playing wife describes duties women do for their partners i.e. cooking, cleaning etc. Do men think that a woman who ‘plays wife’ is a better suitor?
