In the first segment, Jenn and Daren discuss how Kendrick Lamar’s “Family Time” exposes the complexities of “daddy issues”.
In the second segment, Daren lays out the stats around fatherhood and single motherhood in America, and Jenn makes it plain how imperative it is that children seek therapy to deal with their daddy issues and that we focus on the particular issues single mothers and daughters face.
In the third segment, Jenn and Daren reflect on how the alignment of Juneteenth and Father’s Day brought about difficult conversations about freedom and liberation in light of how many daddy issues stem from the institution of slavery.

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.
