About Us

Each week, Zara and Alfred dole out a straight-no-chaser dose of GROWN—distinguishing the things we have the adult right to do from the things it is in our best interests to do. Along the way, the couple debunks and challenges myths, misperceptions and outright lies about sex, money, marriage, dating, family and gender roles, using themes popularized by the Grown Zone on social media, including: #StopCallingItLove, #AGrownManKnows, and #PooNanniePrinciples. Each week they select a topic and go for what they know - NO HOLDS BARRED!
