In this rundown episode, Jenn and Daren laugh and chat their way through the current events stuck on their minds. First, they pay homage and mourn the loss of fan favorite actor Lance Reddick and comment on how we are losing Black men at younger ages. Check on your Black man friend today.
Then they run through a collection of topics from the looming ban of TikTok to the “Hotep Olympics” of Byron Allen, Tyler Perry, and Diddy trying to buy BET to the cinematic experience that is “Swarm.” They close things out by highlighting the Transgender Day of Visibility (March 31) and explaining why everyday should be Transgender Visibility Day.

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.
