S02 - EP. 5 - THIRD SPACE, CITY LIFE AND RURAL DIVIDE

EThis message is brought to you by the realest! Viewer Discretion is advised. Brussels as the new European capital for modern art? Fake news? Well regardless, do we even go to museums and galleries? This week we talk about Black/POC life in terms of city/rural divide. Is the city the only place we can go? We talk about the narratives we chase of having to live in cities to live a livable life and forget our sistren we leave in the country. It's a bit of a brain drain of rural life to seek community in the cities. Maybaby goes full country bumpkin and advocates for a life in nature, something we are continuously deprived of in cities! Then we get on THIRD SPACES. Third spaces are outside of domestic and work life. Where do we go? How do we feel inside these third spaces? Can we feel comfortable in third spaces (museums for instance) that aren't owned by us? We flow question on question and have some illuminating finds on our lil convo. And never forget to moisturize in these cold months!!!

S02 - EP. 4 - FASHION, WHITE NOISE, & NONAME QUITTING MUSIC W/ ERIC

EWE'RE OUT WITH EPISODE 4 FEATURING A VERY SPECIAL GUEST: ERIC CYUZUZO Eric is a Rwandese-Belgian, Brussels extraordinaire who is a jack of all trades. Currently working in a cultural institution and a past working in fashion, we talk about the qualms of why he became disenchanted with the fashion industry (spoiler: exploitation) and his journey in the cultural field. Even more we get on Noname's latest statement that she's quitting music because she doesn't want to perform anymore for white people.We ask why do white audiences flock to certain Black artists? Is there a white noise? Should we show up to spaces like that? Why do white audiences choose Lizzo's and Noname's over Megan Thee Stallion and others? Eric enlightens us on these topics and gives us some delicious and scrumptious insight.

S02 - EP. 3 - VIRTUES AND VICES OF COMMUNITY

Welcome to the last installment of MIND YOUR BUSINESS. This week we're coming at you with a conversation on COMMUNITY. What is a community? How is it different from a scene or a society? A scene is common identities, a community involves kinship. We talk about how community is a gamble, a necessary part of feeling recognized as a person, but also risks erasing our individuality. We see communities both as toxic and the place where we search for care. For many of us, community is the place where we have revelation, take political resistance, and learn how to heal from our interactions with the rest of the world. Still, particular communities are what are causing us injuries as QTPOC, both internally and externally. We get introspective of being there for our own communities and needing to step up! We also get up on the distinction between local communities and online communities, how they relate to each other, and how we should be engaging in both. We globalizing community so we can act locally and in concert! But speaking of community, we catch up a bit on Burna Boy and our talk in Rotterdam (unfortunately unrelated…). ENJOY Y'ALL.

S02 - EP. 2 - TOXIC MASCULINITY

EFor this weeks episode, and the 2nd installment of MIND YOUR BUSINESS, we tackle the topic of toxic masculinity. Toxic masculinity is the phenomenon where men suppress their emotions and use violence as an indicator of power. Repression of feminine perceived acts always comes back in terms of violence to the individual in question or to those who present in femininely perceived ways. How does the intersection of Blackness and gender lead to a double consciousness? As people who are reared with expectations to take up masculinity, what are the intersections between being an oppressor and being oppressed by the same system. EVEN MORE, we talk about the importance of vulnerability and the non-affordance of vulnerability to Black women in many social settings! Vulnerability is coming together, understanding what is happening to you, and being recognized for the words presented, which, is healing. TTYL XOXO

S02 - EP. 1 - PSYYYCH

Welcome to SZN II! Part of a three episode mini series, MIND YOUR BUSINESS will be looking at some precarious connections between mental health and race. We look into mental health through the foundations of *gasp and silence*, psychoanalysis. Taken from our dear Carribean French thinkers (eyes sway to Cesaire and Fanon), we look at how being racialized effects mental well being. We look at projection and repression, of what it means for the psyche to experience racism and how it comes back in ways that we wouldn't think of. We go full on, A+, front of class student and talk about the Lafargue Clinic, the first affordable psychiatrist for Black people in the United States. The clinic took the social effect of racism as the cause for a series of mental illness for the patients, and above all listened to their narratives! We dig this all back up to think about how important mental health is in relation to social environment, since racialization leaves no one untouched. Freud would be ...

EP. 7 - GASLIGHTING

Wassup everyone, for this episode we about to get in things! In this episode we talk about meeting Kimerblie Krenshaw (our Ohio QUEEN) in the Black Archives in Amsterdam. Then we jump into an intersectional research of the infamous Gaslighting. Gaslighting is a form of mental domination where someone makes you distrust your own thoughts or experiences, and tries to make you concede to their perceptions. "You haven't been well lately" "you're paranoid" "you're overreacting" become common weapons gaslighters use to make you question yourself. We ask how can gaslighting be used collectively, both in a raced and gendered way to erase the real experiences of marginalized identities. Google scholar could not hold a flame to this episode y'all!

EP. 6 - PANAFRICANIZM

Hey Angels, we’re back with EP. #6. On this month’s agenda we get on the topic of Pan-Africanism inspired from our recent trip to Senegal and The Gambia. We give a lil tour of the amazing and awe-inspiring time we had there, and how it enticed us to think in terms of similarities instead of differences when thinking of African diaspora+Africans across the continent. How do we address humanism that isn’t complacent? How can we recognize our place, with given privileges, and be conducive to a Pan-African struggle? We tackle this and more (with tons of banter) to vouch for a more critical global solidarity movement y’all!! ENJOY

EP. 5 - Y'ALL MENTION REPARATIONS?

Disclaimer: Jbaby outdid Whitney's voice on this episode, listener discretion is advised. Welcome to the house of reparations. This episode is sadly only an hour long conversation of a 500 year dialogue so we keepin it (semi)concise and pumped this time. Restitution, emotional, and monetary compensations based around the Africa Museum and the colonial countries will be the topic of debate and demand. Case in point, we look into current reparation movements, i.e. the Nama and Herero people, and ask how can we give reparations without neocolonial states upholding what reparations are meant to displace. We touch on this and the peculiar Black Civilization Museum which has recently opened in Dakar. ALSO heyyyyy! We're looking for a new concept for the final segment. DM/PM/send a carrier pigeon and let us know your ideas for the next episode!
