The fine folks at Essence invited on to discuss the inherent challenges in engaging in conversations about race with White people alongside ESSENCE's Christina Coleman, Jezebel's Rich Juzwiak, and Daveen Trentman co-founder and Production Director of the Soze Agency. Shoutout to host Makho Ndlovu and the ESSENCE team.

We're officially a Bitch-approved podcast.

Bitch Media, "a nonprofit, independent, feminist media organization dedicated to providing and encouraging an engaged, thoughtful feminist response to mainstream media and popular culture," named us among their "21 Bitch-Approved Feminist Podcasts." Collard greens for everyone.

Here's what they had to say:

"Mental health, Black pop culture, fatherhood, and masculinity are four of The Extraordinary Negroes’s core themes, and few podcasts tackle these topics as beautifully as Alexander Hardy and Jay Connor do. Black men podcasters are few and far between, but they shouldn’t be. The podcast is hilarious, but also delves deep when needed."

Shit yeah.

Shit yeah.
