#ThatBlackCouple Ep 6 – The Problem With #RelationshipGoals

In the first segment, Jenn and Daren discuss the “Black Love Documentary” that recently aired on OWN. They talk about the couples they loved, the ones they didn’t, and the depictions of Black love that they hope are represented in the next season.

In the second segment, they talk through why #RelationshipGoals is damaging and problematic both for those who are described with the term as well as those who use it to describe others.

In the third segment, Jenn and Daren share personal stories of how #RelationshipGoals have been misapplied and how no one should aspire to have the relationship they have.

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.
