40 Mailbag Meltdown

This week Nina & Kenya dive into the Mailbag and address a new Mommy's meltdown in real time:

  • What do you do when you are just EXHAUSTED? 
  • How do you give yourself grace to feel what you feel when you know others may have it harder than you? 
  • What do you do when you want to be an artist, but you have to feed the baby and pay the bills? 

Lawd, it can be hard sometimes! We talk about all of this and address an article that came out the same time as this question:

39 Fall Back

Kenya feels like Simba in the desert. Nina is sad because fall is taking a long time. But, then she gets over it. People lied to us, those old sayings are longer than what they taught us. We dig deeper. We talk about artists who inspired our work as we remember Ntozake Shange and the ancestors. Are you a whole artist...or a disciple of someone's technique?

38 STRIKE!

We talk faith and church...and the difference between the two. We talk about strike, its not what you think. Kenya says people should mind their business. Nina says she's not a circle, but a Decahodren. Some scriptures we referenced:

 

Mark 9:38, Luke 9:49

35 Summer Wrap Up Pt. 1

Kenya thanks all the people. Sage tells us to stop slacking. Kenya has a traumatic move and channels Snow White. Nina doesn't engage like that. It got long, so we made it a two parter! Harmonize is no longer on vacation!

34 Game Changers

Kenya updates us about Sage's Adventures in Wonderland with Cleveland Ballet. We tesser through the looking glass on our way to Wakanda. Sternocleidomastoid. It’s a real word. Sometimes you have to pay for that information. Sometimes it is innocent. We reminisce about some things. Rehearse. Kenya got fussed at by Nina. It really is okay though.

32 Ya Mama!

***TRIGGER WARNING: Traumatic Birth Experiences, Suicide***

This episode is on the serious side. Listen with headphones, or without kids around. 

Nina & Kenya share their traumatic birth stories, yes they both have one. They talk about Serena Williams, black women's treatment in medicine. Why we need doulas, why they are important advocates for women not just during labor, but postpartum. Nina gets real about her mother's suicide and points out some facts about Post Partum Psychosis. They both cry a little. They talk about Nina's show too.

31 BEYCHELLA!!!

BEYCHELLA!!! AHHHH!!!

We know, everybody is talking about it...because THEY SHOULD BE! This is the blackest/HBCU/Probate/Twerkingest thing you have ever seen and it is magnificent. Yes honey, Beyonce as theatre (credit to Jenna Wortham from Still Processing for coining that phrase). We escape to Nina's car to watch it on the laptop again. Kenya exits several times because she can't take it. Nina gets very passionate about the South and New Orleans. We look at the performance through a critical artistic lens for as long as we can, and then we just STAN! 

Nina is Big Sister Woke Up Like This, Fall '16, Beta Delta Kappa, lol
