#ThatBlackCouple Ep 35 – Petty Politics: Rihanna, Kanye, and Ukraine

In the first segment, Jenn and Daren share their current favorite things, including PJ Morton and JoJo’s new song “My Peace” and the Peacock show “Bel-Air.”

In the second segment, they talk through how Kim and Kanye’s divorce shows that stalking and harassment are never OK, why everybody needs to stay up to date on the war in Ukraine, and how people’s issues with Rihanna’s pregnancy are another example of how Black women are treated like products instead of people.

In the third segment, Jenn and Daren give a preview of what they’ll be discussing for Women’s History Month in their next episode, including phenomenal Black women like Audrey Lorde, bell hooks, and author Zakiya Dalila Harris.

Podcast Summary:
This is an accidentally funny podcast about the realities of Blackness and adult life. We do “adult” differently. We are That Black Couple.
Our goal is to create a space for Black millennials to discuss and embody adult life on their own terms. We aren’t beholden to “traditional” gender or parenting roles, queerness is fluid and present in the ways we show up in our relationships and in the world, and we want to build community with other 30-something Black folx who are trying to figure this ish out.
