Hey hey HEYYYYY! It's our one year anniversary to us! We’ve been bringing you 2 interviews of incredible females EVERY WEEK for a year.. and we’re going for another season 🌘 finally launching the podcast, including street interviews, road trips and more... Our joke to have a show of us laughing became a reality, AMAZING! We are so grateful for all you listeners, hope you keep tuning in! Theresa talks about her experience during the Women's March last weekend and shares a quote from Elizabeth Cady Stanton in honor of the women out there working hard to keep the movement going. "I think if women would indulge more freely in vituperation, they would enjoy ten times the health they do. It seems to me they are suffering from repression. So long as women are slaves, men will be knaves."
Today we are celebrating with our fellow Radio Kingston Hosts and it's a fun, wild ride.
Beetle: "I’m Beetle. I’m a writer, blogger, novelist, sometime performer, and hysterically infrequent embodiment of the things most people expect of me." Please watch this clip of Beetle performing at TMI #blackstories matter and if you need a good laugh this one.

Today we chatted about oh so many things from overcoming fear to the challenges of living in a society where we are both finding our unique tribes and allies yet also trying to celebrate our differences at the same time. How do we evolve and grow together?
Tune into their shows, they are both amazing, thought provoking, comedic and heart-centered. It's all about love anyway!!!
Next week, we welcome Lea Garnier and Dee Solin! Thanks to Manuel Blas and Warren Lawrence for engineering this wild and crazy ride today. We heard clips from Ubaka Hill during this past weekend's Woodstock Women's March and music from Shana Falana. Until next week, love yourself and uplift another.
